2017 MXGP Results From Agentina – In Patagonia, Argentina, March 19, Team Honda Tim Gajser and Red Bull KTM’s Pauls Jonass came away victors, as the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship returned to “normalcy” after the previous race in the mud in Indonesia, that saw the second MXGP moto cancelled due to the unridable track.

Gajser came into Sunday in the pole position after qualifying first on Saturday. He kept true to his qualifying form and won race one ahead of Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jeremy Van Horebeek and race two just over five seconds ahead of Team HRC teammate Evgeny Bobryshev. With his performance Gajser takes over the red plate heading into Leon, Mexico.

Van Horebeek had his best results of the year finishing 2-3 for second overall. After a good pre-season Jeremy struggled in the first two rounds of the championship but he is now looking like a contender for wins.

Team HRC’s Evgeny Bobryshev, who was admittedly not feeling very well due to a virus, fought through pain and his 5-2 results gave him his first overall podium of the year. Bobryshev passed both Desalle and Van Horebeek in race two giving Team HRC a 1-2 race finish and both riders on the overall podium.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin worked his way forward in both races. Gautier was in eighth on the first lap of race one and at times, he was in a three-way battle with his Husqvarna teammates, but he would lead the three with a sixth-place at the finish. In race two he started one better in fifth on the first lap but would pass the early leader Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle for fourth which is where Paulin would finish receiving fourth overall on the weekend.

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Romain Febvre also made his way forward as he started 11th in race one but made quick work and in one lap was seventh, he then continued to move ahead for a fourth-place finish. In race two, he had a similar start with a 10th but eventually moved into fifth until a fall cost him the position and left him to finish eighth for fifth overall.

Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle looked good throughout weekend. The Belgian finished third in race one, he then rocketed out of the gate in race two behind Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Glenn Coldenhoff and then lead the first three laps before falling back to 10th. His 3-10 finishes put him in sixth overall.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli was perhaps the one rider who had the hardest charge. Cairoli struggled on both starts and he was positioned as low as 22nd in race one before finishing ninth and 15th in race two before working his way to fifth. Cairoli showed the heart of a champion and recouped valuable points.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl traditionally does well in Argentina and though it may not be the results he was hoping for his consistent top ten finishes landed him in eighth overall.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings had his best result in MXGP thus far finishing seventh in race two and taking nonth overall.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Pauls Jonass took his second overall victory with 1-1 results in MX2. The Latvian started well and by the finish of both races he separated himself from the rest of the field.

Meanwhile, the other Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Jorge Prado Garcia had good starts taking both holeshots. He then battled with his teammate before losing ground, his 2-3 finish put him on the second spot of the overall podium.

Team Suzuki World MX2 Team’s Jeremy Seewer admittedly struggled with his race one start, from eighth on the first lap he moved his way up to fifth. In race two, he started third and he was able to make his way around Garcia’s bike but it was not close enough to challenge Jonass. Seewer took the third overall but more notably the points lead and the red plate.

Kemea Yamaha Official MX Team’s Benoit Paturel was impressive in race one and his second-place finish had him leading the points coming into race two. His luck changed in race two though when his possibility of taking the red plate disappeared as he went down and his ninth-place finish put him one spot off the overall podium for a fourth. Benoit now sits third in the championship standings.

The American rookie, Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki Racing’s Darian Sanayei had the best weekend of his MX2 career. He qualified third on Saturday and followed it with 6-4 finishes on Sunday. Sanayei was second in race one before being passed by Pature, he then slid out while trying to retaliate. The American showed some speed and looked to be a podium contender after his fifth overall.
