Thor Race Report

THOR RACE REPORT: Bobryshev and Desalle tackle Portuguese MXGP.

Storms and heavy rainfall threatened to put a dampener on round 5 of the MXGP series held on the red-soiled circuit of Agueda Portugal. Organizers worked hard to save the drenched hilly track which eventually made for an exciting weekend of racing.

THOR’s Clement Desalle, had somewhat of a rollercoaster result with a first moto mechanical sidelining the disappointed Belgian. Determined to make amends, Desalle put in an impressive ride to finish 3rd in the second moto, trailing Herlings and Cairoli to the checkered flag.

Unfortunately for Julien Lieber, his first moto 10th place finished was tainted by a tough second moto where the MXGP rookie could only manage 18th spot.

Bos Racing’s Evegeny Bobryshev, showed some brilliance on the rough and rutted Agueda track. The Russian’s consistency with a 9-9 score gave him 8th overall for the day. Bobryshev’s speed keeps improving week by week and no doubt with his home GP next on the MXGP calendar he will be looking to fly the THOR flag high.

Clement Desalle has great memories from Orlyonok, Russia. He took top honors there last year and will be looking to regain his 3rd place in the standings when round 6 heads to Orlyonok on the 1 May.
