Gautier Paulin once again stood on the MXGP podium today, taking second overall having ridden to a pair of third places on the no.21 CRF450RW.
Race one saw Gautier slot into seventh from the start, but Bobby was not so lucky as he was nearly put down in the first corner tussle, remaining upright but emerging in 14th. From there Paulin pushed his way into third by the finish, whilst Bobby climbed to the back of the group fighting for fifth, but ultimately could only cross the line 11th.
In the second race, the start was more positive and Bobby and Paulin emerged unscathed in third and fifth respectively. Paulin soon put the hammer down and set the fastest lap of the race as he promoted himself to third overall, passing Bobby and World Champion Antonio Cairoli. Bobby finished fifth, to complete the Grand Prix weekend in eighth overall.
The second overall represents the fourth time the Frenchman has stood on the podium with Team HRC this season, and strengthens his third position in the World Championship after twelve of the 18 rounds.
