THE AFTERMATH: 2016 FRENCH GRAND PRIX
Evgeny Bobryshev finished third overall.
A 13th place in the second moto prevented Antonio Cairoli dropped him farther back in the points chase.
Romain Febvre got the overall win in his home country.
Tim Gajser earned 47 points (like Romain Febvre), but it was Febvre’s performance and gnarly pass on Gajser that made the Frenchman the overall winner.
Valentin Guillod made the top ten. He also made enemies with Romain Febvre on Saturday’s qualifying race, when the two came together numerous times.
Jeffrey Herlings has had a nearly perfect season. He went 1-1 in France for his 10th 250GP win of 2016.
The Herlings sandwich is served once again. Benoit Paturel, Jeffrey Herlings and Jeremy Seewer finished on the box.
