Gautier said after his win “It was a very good weekend, and it was great to race with Antonio, as it has been difficult to see him winning so many races. I had a great feeling with the track and my bike since the first practice session, and today I got two good starts. I got the hole-shot in the first heat and won it, then in the second Antonio won but I learned a lot racing with him. It’s great to win a GP, the first one for me this season – I got four podiums including one GP win in the first five GP’s, that’s pretty good. We worked a lot with the team, we know what we have to improve, and I want to thank all the people who are working with me.”

MX2 – Jeffrey Herlings is perfect so far this season – he’s won all five GP’s so far – Qatar, Thailand, Valkenswaard, Arco di Trento, and Bulgaria. He’s won all ten motos. The next MX GP will be in Portugal.
