MOTOCROSSTIME - NEWS FROM HONDA HRC
This weekend HRC welcomes back #243 Tim Gajser on the CRF450RW alongside team mate #777 Evgeny Bobryshev.
Gajser was forced to sit out the Russian MXGP due to a shoulder injury he sustained from crashing in the German MXGP. After a period of rest and recuperation, he is now ready to focus on getting his world championship assault back on track.
Ottobiano is a sand track which is part of a huge motorsport facility in Northern Italy. It is a new track on the MXGP calendar and should suit the duo who have had good results this year on other sand based tracks.
MXGP qualifying starts at 17h10 local time on Saturday 24th June.
Tim Gajser 243
I am really looking forward to coming back this weekend. It was really difficult having to miss a race to allow myself to heal but I now see it was the best thing for me. I like Ottobiano as I enjoy racing in the sand. Now I feel ready to come back fighting and ride like I know I can.
Evgeny Bobryshev 777
I have raced at Ottobiano many times, we have had the Italian international championships there in the past. I like the track, the sand there suits my riding style. I still have to consider that I am still recovering from my injury, I am pleased with how Russia went so I feel that I will be stronger in Italy. I am just going to keep working hard to get my physical condition back to where it should be and get back onto the podium.
We are really pleased to be heading into Ottobiano with both riders back on the bike again. Bobby has been working on strengthening his shoulder so this weekend he should come back stronger. Tim is keen to come back and resting up over the last few weeks has helped him heal to get back on his CRF450RW. I am looking forward to seeing what we can do this weekend.
