This weekend MXGP returns to Teutschenthal, for the eighth round of the FIM Motocross world championship.

Team HRC has had much success here over the last few years, with both Gajser and Bobryshev finishing on the podium in 2016. Gajser also re-took the red plate here last year after his second-place finish.
 
Bobryshev will be looking to maintain his form he rode with in Latvia, which led him to his second podium finish this year. Although still a little tender from his crash in Latvia, Gajser will be lining up with his team mate this weekend. The Slovenian has been resting at home for the last week in order to recover in time for the German round.
 
The track is a technical, hard pack track which features hills, twisty sections and jumps. It has been a long-featured track on the MXGP calendar and is popular with the riders.
 
The MXGP qualifying race gets underway this Saturday at 5pm local time.
