The MXGP of Patagonia got off to a good start for Gajser who’s mirrored his success from last year’s qualifying round at the scenic Argentinean track.
Shaking off the illness that has plagued him for the first two rounds of the year, Gajser looked comfortable and fast as he dominated the Argentinean qualifying race. Taking an early lead in the first few corners, the Slovenian pulled a gap between himself and second place; Van Horebeek, which he kept for the remainder of the race to take the win.
Bobryshev despite feeling particularly under the weather since Indonesia, rode a superb race considering his condition, to earn himself fifth place in qualifying. The steely Russian has his hopes of a podium finish tomorrow not far from his sight.
The first race of MXGP starts at 13:15 local time tomorrow, Sunday 19th March.
