Gautier Paulin said after his victory “It’s been a great result today and I’m really happy with my second MX1 motocross Grand Prix victory and being able to battle with Cairoli. I feel I still have some room to improve, and we are continuing to work hard with the team, who are supporting me in every way possible. I want to continue with these results and be fighting for the victory at every MX GP.”

The MXGP of Portugal saw Gautier Paulin and Jeffrey Herlings on the top of the podium in MX1 and MX2 respectively.

Defending World Motocross Champion Antonio Cairoli and Clement Desalle completed the top three of the MX1 class, while Dean Ferris and José Butrón were second and third in the MX2.

MX1 saw Gautier Paulin looking very comfortable in race one, coming from behind to pass Antonio Cairoli for the lead and then going on to win. In race two Paulin put in another strong effort, riding a comfortable second place to secure his second consecutive overall victory for the season.

Antonio Cairoli had both moto holeshots, but in race one had to settle for third after a mistake put him on the ground. Cairoli was on fire in race two leading the race unchallenged from start to finish, awarding him second overall.

Standing on the third step of the podium was Clement Desalle, who finished second in the first race and fifth in the second race after a horrific crash forced him outside the top three.

Both Evgeny Bobryshev, from Russia, and Steven Frossard, from France, did not race today.

In the MX2, defending World Champion Jeffrey Herlings proved yet again he is untouchable, not even a couple crashes could slow down the Flying Dutchman who won both races by more than a minute.
