|Grand Prix of Brazil||Beto Carrero||30/03/2014|
It wasn’t quite thunderstorms today at the MXGP of Brazil, but rain did play a part in two races, making the Beto Carrero track sticky and deeply rutted and catching yet more riders out.
In race one Max Nagl rode well on his CRF450RW, closing in on a podium position throughout but ultimately crossing the line in fourth. Evgeny Bobryshev delivered a performance that surprised the team just two weeks after his ankle operation, running as high as second by the second corner after a great start and ultimately finishing just behind Max in fifth.
Race two was a mixed affair though, as although Max ran smoothly to finish fifth, Bobby crashed out of sixth on the second lap, falling foul of the conditions and an ankle that was sore after race one. Taking a hit to his ankle in the crash, thereafter he rode to limit any further damage and avoid compromising his on-going healing period.
There is now a gap of two weeks until the next race, the MXGP of Trentino on 13 April, during which time the team will be busy with a mid-season test and Bobby will make more scheduled visits to check on the healing of his ankle.
