Situated approximately 60km west of Leipzig (Germany), Teutschenthal’s spectacular Talkessel circuit hosted round 10 of the 2019 World Motocross Championship this weekend.
The MXGP class saw HRC’s Tim Gajser once again dominate – winning Saturday’s qualifying race and both of Sunday’s MXGP races. The Slovenian superstars now leads the championship by 83 points with eight rounds to go.
There was also fantastic Honda success in the MX2 class with Honda RedMoto Assomotor’s Mathys Boisrame finishing race two in second place giving him third overall and his first podium finish in the MX2 class.
Teammate Mitch Evans had an unlucky crash in race one hurting his back and shoulder. Unfortunately, Mitch had to miss race two and will now look to recuperate as fast as he can to try to be ready for Indonesia in two week’s time.
The EMX250 class saw a delighted Stephen Rubini, also of Team Honda RedMoto Assomotor finish the weekend in first overall and reclaim the championship leader’s red plate with a 10-point advantage over his nearest rival.
Rubini now has to wait until 4th August where the bottomless sand of Lommel will host the penultimate round of this year’s EMX250 Championship.
The next stop on the GP calendar visits the OPI Mall circuit at Palembang, Indonesia where all of Honda’s teams and riders will be hoping to maintain and improve on their results so far this year.
