Evgeny Bobryshev:

It was the first time that a Grand Prix was held at the Kegum’s circuit at Latvia. The circuit was sandy and really technical at some places. Evgeny started the weekend positive by finishing in 13th place in the qualification heat.
In the first moto Evgeny took a decent start and came out of the first corner in 15th position. Bobryshev increased his pace and started to make progress during the race. In the middle of the race he reached 12th place. Evgeny knew that he could do better and started to accelerate in the second part of the race. With still a few laps to go he was able to pass two riders and he finished the race in 10th position.
The start of the second moto was better and this time he came out of the first turn in the top 10. Evgeny was able to keep up with the high pace of the rest and and managed to move up to 8th position. He was able to maintain this position for a long time. Unfortunately he was overtaken in the closing metres and finished the race in 9th place.
The talented Russian finished eight overall and sits in 21st position in the World Championship Standings.
