Team HRC’s Tim Gajser won his sixth moto and third overall in a row at the MXGP of Russia, which was also good enough to see him handed the red plate and the championship lead after eight rounds of this 2019 world motocross season. Stephen Rubini also leaves Russia with a red plate as the Team Assomotor rider went three-one in the EMX250 class, taking over leadership of the series by two points at the halfway point in the championship.

The French rider has recovered extremely well from a fractured right ankle to win in France and then place runner-up here in Russia. Looking at a deficit of 18pts heading into this weekend, a third place closed the gap nicely before the victory in race two sealed another impressive display and meant he takes the red plate by two points.

It also means that Honda close up to just five points behind in the manufacturer standings as they try to retain the trophy that they won last year with the help of 2018 EMX250 champion Mathys Boisrame.

The next round takes place in Kegums, Latvia on June 15-16 and should provide another good test for Rubini and Josh Gilbert, who will attempt to secure more good points scoring motos on board their Honda CRF250R machines.
