On another scorching weekend of action at the Sevlievo track in Bulgaria, Mathys Boisrame took the EMX250 championship with an impressive display under immense pressure. Team HRC’s Tim Gajser also returned to the podium after a couple of rounds absent while Hunter Lawrence made it a sweep across all three classes by putting his Honda 114 Motorsports on the podium in the MX2 class.
In the MX2 class, Hunter Lawrence once again finished in third place overall after scoring his highest points tally of the season with five-two finishes. The Australian rider could have even finished a bit higher in the first race had he not made a couple of errors early on but in the second race it was good to see him close up on the first place rider and challenge for the lead. His Honda 114 Motorsports teammate Bas Vaessen also scored his best point’s total of the season as he finished 10th overall.
While the EMX250 series takes a round off, the MXGP and MX2 riders head to a new facility in Turkey next weekend for the 18th round of the 2018 world motocross championships for what is very likely to be another hot race on a hard pack track.
