MXGP of Spain marks halfway point of the season

This weekend’s MXGP of Spain at the classic Talavera de la Reina track marks the halfway point of the 2016 MXGP World Championship, and both Evgeny Bobryshev and Gautier Paulin are eager for the fight.

After missing five rounds through injury, Paulin is getting back into his racing stride and will be looking to build on his return in Italy two weeks ago. Whilst the weekend didn’t quite go to plan after getting caught up in a first corner crash in race one, Gautier showed that he’s lost none of his strength on the bike with a determined performance that impressed many after so long off the bike.

Now, with more time practicing on the CRF450RW since Arco di Trento and significantly more seat time under his belt now, he’s going to be faster and stronger still.

Evgeny Bobryshev was on the edge of the podium at the venue last year, and will be hoping to take another step as he chases third in the World Championship. The Russian has been strong in the last two races despite nursing a shoulder injury, but as that gives him fewer problems race-by-race, you wouldn’t bet against the Russian to continue the top-three run he started with race two in Germany, and continued with the second moto in Italy.

First used in 1994, the hard-pack Talavera de la Reina track made a return to the MXGP calendar in 2014 after a short hiatus. This weekend, the temperature is set to 24 degrees Celsius, with only a small chance of the odd shower into Saturday night.
