3 days ago

The MXGP championship headed to the fast, square-edged Neuquen track for the third round of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship, on the weekend. Team HRC’s Tim Gajser came into Sunday in the pole position after qualifying first on Saturday. He kept true to his qualifying form and won race one ahead of Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jeremy Van Horebeek and race two just over 5 seconds ahead of Team HRC teammate Evgeny Bobryshev. With his performance, Gajser takes over the red plate heading into Leon, Mexico. Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jeremy Van Horebeek had his best results of the year finishing 2-3 for second overall and Team HRC’s Evgeny Bobryshev, who was admittedly was not feeling very well due to a virus, fought through the pain to come home in third place, his first podium of the year.

In the MX2 class, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Pauls Jonass took the overall and with a 1-1 finish. The Latvian started well and by the finish of both races, he separated himself from the rest of the field. Meanwhile, the other Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Jorge Prado Garcia had good starts taking both holeshots. He then battled with his teammate before losing ground, his 2-3 finish put him on the second spot of the overall podium. Team Suzuki World MX2 Team’s Jeremy Seewer took third overall but more notably the points lead.
