MXGP QUALIFYING RACE RESULTS

Yamaha’s Romain Febvre grabbed a huge holeshot in the MXGP qualifying race here in Russia.

Gajser however ended up clipping the back of Herlings which sent the Slovenian to the dirt. Herlings was thrown off by the contact allowing Febvre to take the holeshot.

Febvre’s Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP teammate Jeremy Van Horebeek ran second and TM Factory Racing’s Max Nagl ran 3rd before being passed by Herlings and later Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle.
