160913_53

Today’s MXGP of the USA at the iconic Glen Helen marked the end of the 2016 season, and one in which Honda celebrated winning the Manufacturers’ Championship.

Gautier Paulin delivered a solid performance in the final moto today to take fifth, and fifth overall in the Grand Prix, whilst Evgeny Bobryshev overcame starting from the very outside gate to take an eighth place finish, which was enough for seventh overall.

Combined with the performance this season of Tim Gajser on the Honda Gariboldi CRF450RW, Honda dominated the Manufacturers’ Championship this season to win that particular title by 70 points, adding to the double crown of 2016 Riders’ and Manufacturers’ World Championship titles.

Today’s MXGP of the USA marked the end of the 2016 season, but that’s not to say racing is now finished. In two weeks, the Italian track of Maggiora hosts the Motocross of Nations, which is followed a fortnight later by the Riders’ and Manufacturers’ Cup at the Veltins Arena in Germany.
