Evgeny Bobryshev has made it three consecutive podiums for the Honda World Motocross team, with an excellent 3rd place finish at the GP of Kegums, Latvia. Bobryshev went 3-3 across both motos to take home 3rd in the overall classification and to step onto the podium once more in front of a crowd of enthusiastic Russian fans who had made the trip over the border.
Bobryshev was running at the front for much of the first moto, just behind leader Cairoli but could never quite get into the position to make the pass. Frossard was closing behind and as the moto came into the latter stages, made the pass for 2nd. Bobryshev would settle for 3rd and set his sights on a similar finish in the second. Team-mate GonÃ§alves would also post a strong ride to 7th position.
The second moto followed a very similar format, with Cairoli, Frossard and Bobryshev once again gapping the chasing pack. GonÃƒÂ§alves would charge through from 10th po sition on the first lap to lead this chasing pack in 4th. Out front the positions would not change and it stayed Cairoli, Frossard and Bobryshev (the same order for the overall classification) with GonÃƒÂ§alves 4th in the moto and overall.
Evgeny Bobryshev, Honda World Motocross, “I am so happy to be on the podium once again but I cannot really think right now because my brain is boiled! It was really hot out there and the pace was really quick. I feel like I am comfortable on the podium now and want to be here every week.”
Rui GonÃƒÂ§alves, Honda World Motocross, “This was a really good result and I was very happy with the way I rode in the second moto, coming through the pack. I just relaxed and let things flow and this is when I ride at my best. I just need to sort things out a bit in the first moto but overall it has been a good day.”
