Bobryshev Cuts Through The Field To Take Sixth In Qualifying For MXGP Of France

After a start that saw him forced to the tail of the pack, Evgeny Bobryshev was back with his characteristic spirit and determination, fighting through the field from last to recover to sixth on his CRF450RW.

Team HRC’s No.777 rider didn’t make his recovery easy for himself though, with a small crash on the hard-pack track that slipped him back down the order giving him even more work to do. But in a demonstration of the return to fitness and strength he is now enjoying, Bobby was locked in battles right until the line, taking the chequered flag just 0.15 seconds behind fifth place.

Run under sunny skies and temperatures approaching 23 degrees Celsius, the track was in good condition and very fast today. Despite Bobby’s progress suggesting otherwise, passing was made difficult due to only a few possible lines through each corner and tricky patches of wet dirt and stones that caught a few riders out during the qualifying race.

The weather forecast is for more of the same tomorrow, when MXGP race one gets underway at 14:15 local time. The French fans were out in force today in support of their MXGP and local heroes, and more still are expected on race day in this immensely popular venue of Saint Jean d’Angely, just north of Bordeaux.

For today I’m a bit disappointed because I had a bad gate jump. I could overtake many guys in the first half lap and I was maybe fifth, but then I made a small mistake and lost the rear and went down. I only let a few guys back past me and then I started again behind Simpson. I was pushing to overtake him, but he was taking all the inside lines well and I was three laps before the end of the race so I was thinking “ok, 6th place is ok for the gate and I don’t want to take any risks”. It was quite hard to overtake as there are only a few lines where you can pass but some of these places are wet and there are large stones so it’s easy to make a mistake. Now we have to see what happened with the start and there are a few mistakes we have to take out for tomorrow, but I am in good shape, better than in Spain, and I’m feeling good.

It’s not been a bad day today for us. Bobby missed the gate jump, and then as the riders in front of him closed in he got knocked around and had to shut off the throttle, so he was last into the first corner. But then, typical Bobby, he passed 50 per cent of the field by the first half lap. He was pushing very hard and made a few mistakes which dropped him a little down the order, but he climbed back each time. The speed is there, but he’s just got to get away with that first bunch from the start. The track is very fast and is in prime condition, really good, so it’s not so bad for the opening day.
