Team HRC MXGP riders Tim Gajser and Evgeny Bobryshev faced a challenging morning as they steered their Honda CRF450RW’s through the thickening mud in Pangkal Pinang Indonesia.
With heavy rain overnight it was clear on arrival that the torrential weather had been detrimental to the track. Within the first few minutes of free practice the track was proving to be more challenging then anyone anticipated. With yellow flags adorning almost every corner and taking everything into consideration Youthstream made the executive decision to use free practice as qualifying times to prevent any further deconstruction.
Both riders a little disappointed that their practice time is not a true reflection on where they should have qualified, leaving it all to race for tomorrow.
The first MXGP race should start tomorrow at 13:15 (local time) providing the weather holds out overnight.
