Another great result for Honda World Motocross rider Evgeny Bobryshev as he celebrated his third consecutive podium by taking third position overall in Matterley Basin, Great Britain for the penultimate round of the MX1 World Championship.
Evgeny Bobryshev #777: 3rd overall “It’s great to have three podiums in a row, as the last time it happened was in 2011. It wasn’t so easy today; I missed the qualifying race yesterday, then with the rain this morning the track was so muddy in warm-up, but when we raced the ground was different again. I managed to finish fourth both times, which meant I had my goal of being consistent. In the first race I had the last gate pick, but I went inside on the gate. I had a good jump and was fifth, but I managed to get to fourth. I had a good gap behind me, so I could control the gap, but I couldn’t go faster, as I lost the speed a bit with arm-pump. In the second race the start wasn’t so good, but I got through to third. Kevin passed me, as he was quicker in the last part of the race, and I didn’t want to do anything stupid to risk losing the podium. It’s a nice track here, but it has changed a lot over the weekend, and the ground was very dry in the end. The jumps are big, and I enjoyed it, although it was rough with some big bumps. My goal is for podiums, and we have Lierop now for the last race. It’s a nice track there and I will do my best to be on the box again.”
