evgeny-bobryshevMXGP: Round six of the Motocross World Championship sees Team HRC head to the Latvian city of Riga this weekend, returning to Europe after the South American adventure of the last two races.

Held earlier in the season this year than last, the Kegums track marks a return to a sand surface. Last year it was the scene of a Team HRC podium as Gautier Paulin took second overall to stand on the podium for the fourth time in 2015.

For Evgeny Bobryshev, the weekend is something of a home Grand Prix. With no event in Russia, Latvia is the closest event for Bobby so his legions of fans will make the short trip for their local hero, and they are usually very enthusiastic and vocal in their support.

Kegums is located 50km southeast of Riga on the banks of the Daugava River, which flows to the southern tip of Latvia and then across the border into Belarus. The conditions for the weekend are likely to be similar to last year – that’s to say changeable with forecast rain on Friday and Sunday bookending a sunny Saturday.

On track action for the MXGP class will begin at 1045hrs local time with Free Practice on Saturday, while Sunday’s two races are scheduled at 1415hrs and 1710hrs local time.
