This weekend, Team HRC riders Evgeny Bobryshev and Gautier Paulin will head to Kegums in Latvia, the scene of last year‰Ûªs Motocross of Nations, for round twelve of the MXGP Championship.
With no event in Russia, Latvia is the closest ‰Û÷home‰Ûª event for Evgeny Bobryshev where an increase in fan support will be enthusiastically received by the popular Russian, who is looking forward to racing at the 1540m long hard sand track. Bobby is confident of a return to form after a small crash curtailed his speed in the first moto last weekend.
Although no two races are ever the same, Gautier Paulin will be reminded of his great results in the Motocross of Nations last year and will be looking to achieve success again at the Baltic track. The Frenchman has been working hard throughout the week in preparation for the event, which follows only days after the MXGP of Sweden.
‰ÛÏMy plan is just to go training, keep putting in the work and be ready for Latvia this weekend." Paulin said. "We will have a better weekend in Latvia.
"Of course I have good memories from the Nations last year and we've had some good rides there in the past, but every year is different and you cannot just make a copy. For sure though we‰Ûªll do the work to make something good this weekend.‰Û
