Tim Gajser: “It feels really good this weekend. It wasn't easy there, because both motos were tough because Arnaud (Tonus) was really fast and he was always behind me pushing hard. The first race I held him out of all races, and then in the second race it was the same, but after 10 minutes he made a mistake and gave me the gap I needed to manage the race and win. The song was not so bumpy, but it was still hard because it was so hard and it was easy to make a mistake. Overall, I am happy and thank you to all Honda users, as CRF450RW is amazing and I hope we can continue this form. Three-competitive ago I was 40 points behind the championship, and now I have the red plate, so I'm really happy with a couple of last week, and although it is still early days and we have plenty of competitions, it will still feel great feelings of, I can not wait to see the red plate bike Latvia. ”

Jorge Prado:“ It was a very difficult weekend because on the first motto I had a good jump off the gate, but collided with a few other drivers at the first corner and lost a lot of positions. I had to work in front of his way and it took all the motto! When I left the two laps I passed the first place: I was really happy after that, even if it meant I had to use a lot of energy. I knew that holeshot would be important and focused so much on another motto. It made my life easier. I can win again. Latvia is an interesting piece. The first year there almost almost podium and last year I won the qualifier and the second motto. I'm looking forward to it and I hope to make a difference in a little championship. ”

Jeffrey Herlings:“ I had a serious disability and it has been difficult to get back here mentally and physically and a lot of pain for a long time. I didn't expect this result here today, especially on this track. So be close to the podium again and feel pretty beautiful. I like the Latvian track, but I do not have stable expectations, and I do not forget where I came from to get to this point. When we say that we always try to fight for a prize point when we can! ”

Tony Cairoli:“ A very difficult weekend and of course yesterday's collision didn't help because it meant that I was completely out of the gate to pick up. I was riding very rigid and, in the absence of the ship, it is almost impossible to make a good result on this track; everyone rides at the same speed. We lost the red plate, but the positive thing is that I am not badly injured and we saw big crashes today. We walk a little bit faintly, but we re-group and look at Latvia, which is a nice song, and restore some points. ”

Arnaud Tonus:“ It was not easy to fight lead. I was glad I had a good start so I was already close to Tim. There was not too much opportunity to move on to this song, so I came close and went ahead, but I made a little mistake. I am glad that I tried and I was able to recover and still in second place. I am still very grateful that I am here podium three times in a row. ”

Jeremy Seewer:“ It's amazing to do it on the MXGP podium. It seems much harder to get here, much harder to win in some of my MX2 games. There's a lot of work here, there are lots of fast friends, and especially on the track, as we had today, with lots of friends running the same speed. It seems to me that it is time to move to 250 cm 3 of 450cc C and get a nice bike, but in recent weeks, I've been good. The Yamaha Factory team as my crew has done an amazing job, and I am grateful to them for the fact that it has happened. It seems that we are moving in a really good direction. ”

Jago Geerts:“ I had a good weekend, I can close the leaders near the end of the games, but I didn't have enough time and finished the third. I worked hard in another race. I'm working on and I got up to the third Olsen. I tried really hard, but it wasn't enough, so the second podium I decided in a row. I am glad, and I look forward to going to Latvia next week, it is one of your favorite songs. ”

Romain Febvre:“ The weekend was good. Yesterday it was really good to win the qualifying competition. Last week I couldn't ride because I was really sick. I was lucky enough to feel better when I came here. In the first race I got holeshot, but I made mistakes. I returned to the third, but I hit my ankle and felt the pain, so I only protected the third. The second race crashed and then I stopped the bike and lost lots of places. I came back to nine, so the speed was good, but two errors on such a track, I couldn't do better. ”

Gautier Paulin:“ I had an excellent Saturday battle forward. I actually felt my greatest. This morning, once I was warming up, I felt good on the bike, but I didn't have a superb start in the first race, but I really went by way of it till I washed one of many jumps at the back and I had an ideal one. It was a very massive collision, I harm my hand a bit. I came again to a different race and just rode my race. I didn't feel good, however I come again to Latvia, healthier than now. "

Tom Vialle:" A very good weekend for me and I’m glad with this outcome. It seemed that both days went nicely, despite the fact that my start was not good. I am within the fifth race in the meanwhile and really feel good, but I do know that there’s nonetheless an extended strategy to go. I have to try to rating as many factors each weekend. Subsequent we’ll go to Latvia and it is going to be my first go to there, so I hope to be good once more. ”

Roan van de Moosdijk:“ Starting today was the key. I came third in the first round and took the second round already; I followed Rubin from all races, but both of us were riding a complete race, and I saw that we had left the field, so I knew the other was a good size and I had no risks in the final round. I'm really looking forward to the next round in Kegums in the sand. ”

Ben Watson:“ I’ve to be proud of the 7th place. I had a very huge collision on Saturday. Both wrists have been injured and I didn't even know I can experience on Sunday. Luckily I had the prospect to journey, however trust me: it wasn't a simple day. I had a terrible gate and I had to struggle towards the ache. I had to go back from the highest 20 out of each races. I'm really proud of the second race. I moved upwards from 20th to sixth place after so much. Now I have one week to take a bit rest. "

Henry Jacobi:" I’m somewhat annoyed because I used to be second yesterday in all the follow periods, so the velocity was there and immediately, however you begin, had not been good all weekend. I was concerned in the first nook of the collision race, but I might return from the last to the eighth. The second start was slightly higher and eventually the eighth; it was actually scorching, however I did it the most effective. I just have to seek out my good again; often starts have been robust, however these final two GP'm lacking. It was very troublesome to go there, as there are lots of fast elements and solely two technical options that you will discover. However that's what it is; it was the same for everyone. ”

Mitchell Evans:“ In the first motto I got a good start and just rode my own race, so I stayed in the fifth race. I tried to follow the leaders, but they had a little more momentum. I was in difficulty with the speed of the track and how slippery it was. On the motorcycle I had a really bad start, about twenty or something, and on the track that was really hard to move, I made my way to tenth. I was really happy about riding this weekend. My pace was a bit off, but we know where we can improve. I just need to focus on getting started better. I'm looking forward to Latvia. ”

Zachary Pichon:“ The result is not here, but we had a lot of improvements this weekend. I had a pretty good speed on the track and a good day. In the first race I started about fifteen and returned to the eleventh nine minutes, but then I had an electrical question. I crashed at the start of the second race and found no rhythm. Speed ​​is there, but I just have to put everything together. I am really motivated to Latvia next weekend. ”

Darian Sanayei:“ Today was pretty good. It was great to get holeshot and lead the first race in almost fifteen minutes! It was all about what I could do before I ran out of energy because I still have problems with my workout and the effects of the virus. After fifteen minutes I was ready and hanging, but after I quickly returned to the sixth, I saw that I had a gap with the rest, so I rode intelligently. I knew I had nothing else physically for another competition, so I just tried to get a good start and pushed the race back; I was among the top three for almost fifteen minutes, but then faded as expected. I'm just glad to be able to show some momentum this weekend and let everyone know that I can still run to the front, even if I can not train or ride in between races. ”

Julien Lieber:“ I had a good rhythm yesterday, but my start wasn't so good in the qualifying race, and I fought with Tonus when he hit me and fell. I asked to return, but I got another crash; the seventeenth gate was not the best, because the beginning is even more important here. At the first launch I was completely outside; Jumping from the gate was good, but at the first corner I was too wide and lost. The first two rounds were really good, so I could go to a number of riders and finally returned to sixth. The second start was better inside; I was fifth when I hit a neutral and lost one position, but then I returned for the fifth time in sixth overall. I want to thank all the teams because we did a lot of tests before we came here and I feel even more confident; we are trying to continue good work in Latvia. ”

Evgeny Bobryshev:“ This was the last GP every week, but I think it's now a little longer. I've ridden my pain my wrist, so I went back to my doctor last week, and he confirmed that I have broken my wrists and I needed a mission, but I wanted to compete for my fans here in Russian. ”

Benoit Paturel:“ There are some positive aspects this weekend; it was the best GP so far, although the result of the second race would not be so good. I had a good rhythm this weekend. In the first motto I got a good start and I could fight the top ten; I lost two seats in the last part of the competition, but it was positive. Certainly I used a lot of energy to fight the top ten and the second motto was harder after the beginning of the evil; the track was fast, it was very hot and I did my best but I didn't want to take risks. ”

Brian Bogers:“ It was not my greatest efficiency, and I am not too pleased as a result of two competitions have been positioned in 17. not what we all the time came to Russia. On this climate I’ve to work nonetheless, as a result of these temperatures and such a hard pack, I'm not where I have to be. I felt pretty good and I like the monitor and even take pleasure in driving. Nevertheless, the results aren’t ok, so now I have to work for every week to ensure that Latvia goes nicely.

Thomas Kjer Olsen: “It's been one other constructive GP for me. I discover it just a little frustrating that I didn't have far more Prado in my first motto, however it's often nice to be on the podium again. I have labored alkuillani and right now I obtained the gate nicely in each motoissa, who have been huge differences. In my first motto I labored underneath management and felt good. The monitor was a bit unpredictable in places, there were a number of tough slippers, so I just tried to ensure it was clean. I don't know how many rounds to hitch, but just pushing exhausting to remain forward of what I did until two turns. I gave all of it to get back to Prado, however I couldn't do it. I received another fast second motto and I attempted simply clean and consistent. It was scorching, but I felt good. One other second place outcome was good. "

Jed Beaton:" I'm actually proud of the best way the docs went. It is clear that I needed a while after the accident in Portugal and I returned after I used to be unable to compete in France and acquired two strong results. I did three good days driving earlier than coming to Russia, so I was positive things would go nicely as a result of I felt good and an important thing was painless. The opening race didn't begin too properly, I had a nasty start, so I needed to work actually onerous. I went from the highest 20 to the 12, and I did a whole lot of work. I felt exhausting work on another motto, however I did good traversers. I'm actually proud of seventh. I really feel like I should have, and now that Portugal is coming behind me, I need to construct these outcomes from the Latvian GP subsequent weekend. ”

Pauls Jonass:“ I was looking forward to Russia because I won a couple of times at MX2, so I have good memories. It felt good on the track all weekend, the speed was where I wanted it to be. The song is very fast and slippery and hard to do a lot of time, so when everyone drives, it's easy to make mistakes. I think I was trying to be aggressive but sensible at the beginning of both races. I couldn't get started, but they were not bad either. I made good, fast traversers and I was happy to be in the fifth engine with several turns in the opening engine. But I felt that the second motto was better – I continued to fight, so I ended up sixth, which was a great way to stop the GP. ”

Arminas Jasikonis:“ The GP has not wished at all and I did not ride like I could or should have been. I don't know why, but I couldn't find a good rhythm on the track, which meant I was riding too hard, I would be too physical, in both races. Because I was riding too physically, I really felt the heat on another motto. I gave it all, but not what I wanted, but racing can sometimes be like that. We're going to the next GP and looking for a better one. ”
