The Honda team has prototype works bikes, but based on results they aren’t up to snuff just yet. Rui Goncalves (999) is currently 11th in the 450 points.

Tony Cairoli holeshot in the first 450 moto, but Christophe Pourcel passed him on the first lap. Gautier Paulin was the man on the move and he passed Antonio Cairoli on lap six (and Clement Desalle would get Tony C also). Pourcel won the moto with Paulin second, Desalle third Cairoli fourth and David Philippaerts fifth.

In moto two, Gautier Paulin led from start to finish. First moto winner, Pourcel, raced around in fifth place, but by the end had moved to second with Cairoli third. Fill-in rider Ken DeDycker was fourth in front of Evgency Bobryshev.

Clement Desalle is considered Tony Cairoli’s toughest competition ? but that hasn’t happened yet.


The other half of the works Honda team, Evgeny Bobryshev (777), is also outside of the top ten in points.

In the first 250 moto Tommy Searle holeshot ahead of Joel Roelants and Harri Kullas. Points leader Jeffrey Herlings was in seventh, but by the second lap Herlings had moved into third place. But, that was the best he could do. Searle had brake troubles late in the moto and both Roleants and Herlings passed him. It was Roelants first-ever GP victory.

In moto two Tommy Searle holeshot again,while Herlings had the same mediocre start as in the first moto…and again Herlings moved up to second. Jeffrey Herlings could never get close enough to Tommy Searle and the duo went 1-2 with Roelants third. Searles 3-1 bested Herlings 2-2.
