Evgeny Bobryshev has continued on from his 2nd place overall in Sweden last weekend to finish 2nd in Saturday?s Qualifying Race in Teutschenthal, Germany. Team-mate Gon�alves finished 5th to mark a return to form for the Portuguese.

Both Honda riders got away well once again, within the top-five, as Gon�alves lead the way in 2nd in the early stages. A Charging Bobryshev would soon put a pass on Frossard for 3rd and then moved for a pass on his team-mate for 2nd. He would close the gap on Cairoli in front before settling into his rhythm and into a comfortable 2nd place, a place he would hold for much of the race distance. It was really only Bobryshev who could match the race pace out front of Cairoli and he crossed the line with a healthy margin over 3rd place man, Philippaerts.

Gon�alves also held a consistent pace throughout much of the moto, sitting pretty within the top-five. Having succumbed to a pas s from both Frossard and Philippaerts, he then began to close the gap Frossard in the closing stages. The time would however run out before he could position for a pass and he was forced to settle for 5th.

?I am feeling comfortable running at the front and feeling confident in my riding. My speed is good and my condition is strong. It was very hot out there which was a factor and could be a factor tomorrow if it doesn?t cool down but I feel as though I can go good.?

Rui Gon�alves, Honda World Motocross
?Yeah it was good out there. I felt more relaxed on the bike and that showed in my pace. I did not feel like I was fading towards the end, which has been a problem in recent races but I now feel strong again. I am looking forward to tomorrow?s motos and continuing on from today.?
