Team HRC Continues its South American Odyssey to Mexico

Posted:

Fresh from the MXGP of Argentina, Team HRC continues its South American odyssey this weekend with round five of the Motocorss World Championship, the MXGP of Mexico.

Making the trip from Bariloche to Leon, the expected conditions for the two Grands Prix could not be more different. From eleven degrees in Argentina, this weekend promised temperatures in excess of 35 degrees Celsius, providing a whole new and punishing challenge for the riders.

Last year, the MXGP of Mexico was almost under water with the amount of rainfall prior to the weekend, and the track was, at times, a mud bath. This year though the conditions are dry and the track will be its usual hard pack surface.

The venue has been reasonably good for Team HRC in the past with podiums in each of the last two editions of the race. With Evgeny Bobryshev having stood on the podium once already this season, the Russian #777 is hoping for a repeat performance of 2015.

A bruising crash in the second race in Argentina leaves him sore going into this weekend though, and with no riding between the races, easing himself back in to the start of the weekend will be the primary objective.

‰ÛÏI had a good weekend in Mexico last year and it was good to finish with a podium from my first visit," Bobryshev said, "I like the track, and last year they prepared it very well and there were some good lines so you could fight through the pack and race and not just follow. After last weekend I felt very bruised and sore from the crash in Argentina though, which I‰Ûªm still disappointed about. I‰Ûªm spending this week recovering so my body will be ready in time for Mexico.‰Û
