It was a red weekend in Talavera de la Reina as Honda’s factory CRF riders took a double podium and made it three in the top five at the MXGP of Spain.

Honda Gariboldi’s Tim Gajser dominated the weekend on the #243 CRF450RW, whilst Gautier Paulin made a return to the podium with two fantastic races to finish third overall. Evgeny Bobryshev also enjoyed a consistent weekend to finish sixth and fifth for fifth overall on the #777 machine.

Gautier Paulin made a great start in race one, slotting into second from the first corner. After the pack shuffled in the opening lap, he found himself in fourth, but settled into a rhythm to chase down Clement Desalle in third, whilst resisting pressure from Toni Cairoli behind in a three way battle for third.

Nipping at the heels of that battle was Evgeny Bobryshev who climbed from ninth at the start to finish sixth, just out of reach of the group ahead of him.

In race two, again there were three Hondas in the top four from the start, and the order quickly settled with Gajser taking the lead from Max Nagl and Paulin slotting into third ahead of Bobby in fourth. As another four-bike battle for third developed, Gautier dug deep to resist pressure from Romain Febvre whilst the Frenchman got ahead of Bobby with two laps to go.

Honda extends its lead of the Manufacturers’ Championship, whilst Gajser extends his lead of the World Championship.
