Round seven of the 2019 World Motocross Championship visited the challenging hillside circuit of Saint-Jean-d’Angély in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of South-West France. Team HRC’s Tim Gajser continued his recent domination of the MXGP class with a double race win. Frenchman Stephen Rubini also took his Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor CRF250R to an overall win in the EMX250 class and solid MX2 performances from Honda 114 Motorsports Mitch Evans and Zach Pichon kept the French fans happy.
Still recovering from a recent ankle injury, Team Assomotor RedMoto Honda’s Stephen Rubini battled through the pain barrier backing up Saturday’s start-to-finish Moto 1 win with a sixth place in Moto 2 handing the home-race-hero the overall victory on his CRF250R and the French crowd were delighted. Buildbase Honda Racing’s Josh Gilbert finished the day in 7th overall, managing to deliver his best EMX250 result of the season so far. A worthy reward for his talent and efforts.
