FIRST HONDA PODIUM FOR NAGL

Team HRC commenced the 2014 FIM Motocross World Championship in great style with Max Nagl taking a moto victory and second place overall in the Grand Prix of Qatar at a floodlight Losail. The first event of eighteen in this year’s contest was won by Gautier Paulin (Kawasaki) in the fresh MXGP category (rebranded after ten years of MX1) while Nagl took the new HRC-fettled CRF450RW to results of first and fourth in front of 7000 spectators (weekend figure).

It was Nagl’s first FIM world championship podium appearance since 2011, his first for Honda and the first win and rostrum celebration for the team since that same 2011 campaign.

For the second time in a row the Losail circuit, located a short distance from the city of Doha and famed as the long established site of the MotoGP season opener, welcomed MXGP, MX2 and Women’s classes. A vastly improved layout in terms of the lighting provisions added to the evening spectacle.

The track itself remained largely unchanged and offered a bumpy, hard-pack test that was also fast with plenty of jumps. What the Grand Prix lacked in attendance it made up for in drama with nerves and mistakes forming the usual part of a first major racing event of any calendar.

At the heart of the MXGP action was Nagl. Max was in good shape and keen for a positive race to banish memories of his unhappy 2013 meeting when a stomach virus effectively scuppered his fitness and speed for the initial phases of what was his first season in ‘red’. A superb start in the first moto (now shortened to 30 minutes and 2 laps compared to 35 minutes of past years) let Nagl build a considerable lead at the front of the pack. The German coped admirably with setting the pace, even under late pressure from World Champion Tony Cairoli (KTM). He took the chequered flag by just under two seconds from Cairoli with Gautier Paulin (Kawasaki) third.

In the second outing Nagl wasn’t able to gap the field as rampaging Frenchman Paulin and Steven Frossard (Kawasaki) made an early break. Nagl opted for caution and consistency and his fourth position, behind Cairoli, was good enough for the Grand Prix runner-up garland.

Ninth overall was team-mate Evgeny Bobryshev. Bobby came to Doha nursing a twisted ankle and was hindered in his capabilities by the many rough right hand turns and some close action that saw his leg actually hit several times in the second race. He claimed an eighth and then bore the pain to finish the evening in ninth at the second time of asking. The Russian now faces a race against time to improve his fitness.

In MX2 the Gariboldi team saw two new recruits – former European Champion Tim Gajser and Japanese Grand Prix rookie Kei Yamamoto – take their CRF250R to ninth and twenty-second overall respectively. World Champion Jeffrey Herlings (KTM) won the Grand Prix.

After this first salvo in the FIM schedule HRC’s riders retain the same positions in the fledgling championship standings for each category. The teams head swiftly over to Thailand this week for round two where the Si Racha circuit outside of Bangkok will entertain the second ever GP visit to the country next Sunday.

HONDA RIDER COMMENTS:

Max Nagl:
Race Result: 1st/4th Championship position: 2nd
“It [the last moto win] was a long time ago, for myself, for Honda and for everyone and for that I’m very happy about the first race. I was actually a little nervous before the second Heat because I did not want to make it worse but I managed to have a good start again. I was happy all weekend with my riding and it went perfectly. Every session we made some small changes to the set-up with little improvements and that is the best way you can work. At this level everybody at the front is fast, we are all at the same speed so to make the pass you need the others to make a mistake or to find a spot where you have more momentum. It is difficult, therefore the start is so important. In the second moto my jump was good but I perhaps did not have the speed on the straight to have the holeshot. I was happy with the fourth position in that race because it is positive to start the season with good points.”

Evgeny Bobryshev:
Race Result: 8th/9th Championship position: 9th
"Positives from tonight? My starts maybe! I have the speed and everything but I could not handle the track and the slippy ground. There were many right handers and I couldn't use my injured leg properly. I have a bad sensation, like something is cutting, a sharp pain. I was racing with the injury but also fighting to match the pace of the guys. I managed to finish eighth in the first and that was the best I could do. In the next one I twisted it twice again. I had a big battle at the start of the race and two of the guys hit me in the leg with the block-passing. I finished the race with my teeth gritted. The season is long but at the moment it is very tough. It has already been two weeks since I twisted it, so I think it will take more time."

Kei Yamamoto:
MX2 Race Result: 22nd/20th Championship position: 22nd
“I feel very tired but it was such a good experience. The track was difficult but also a lot of fun. There were many fast guys in MX2 and I know I need more and more training to improve. Thailand will be hot next week and I know other riders will get tired although I think this will be in my advantage.”
