The rain-affected Agueda track in Portugal, ended up producing an excellent weekend of racing, with Tim Gajser making a welcome return to the podium after Mathys Boisrame had won both of his EMX250 motos.
In the EMX250 championship, Assomotor Racing rider Mathys Boisrame put in two great rides after two holeshots, to win both races in completely different conditions. In the rutted hard pack on Saturday and the muddy conditions of Sunday morning, Boisrame showed he was the best rider of this extremely competitive field and with his 50 points, moved himself right up into title contention. He now sits just 15 points behind the championship leader and with Russia being one of his favourite tracks, he has a good chance to close the gap even further at the next round.
Elsewhere in the class, Alberto Forato and the Carglass Honda duo of Freek van der Vlist and Steven Clarke all scored points.
The riders now have a weekend off before making the journey to Russia where the action will take place on the Monday and Tuesday, in order to coincide with the May 1st Russian National Holiday.
