25 years old – Russian racer Evgeny Bobryshev, who is known as ‘Bobby’ to most, is beginning his fourth term aboard Honda MX1 machinery, with which he’s enjoyed the highs and lows of racing throughout the past few seasons. The super-tough racer made his MX1 debut in 2010 and quickly established himself as one of the lead competitors, finishing in the top 10 in the world, despite being relatively unknown in his preceding MX2 days. Other notable points about Bobryshev are that he was a competitive road racer in his earlier career, winning the 125cc Russian Championship before making the decision to compete in the European MX2 series for a more permanent career move.
He won another Russian title in 2007, this time in MX2, before launching his full World MX2 career in 2008. In 2009 he finished runner-up in the Dutch MX2 series and broke into the top ten at the Latvian leg of the World series. However due to his bigger build, moving to MX1 in 2009 could not have come at a better time. Bobryshev won the MX1 British Championship title in his first year with CAS Honda, before moving over to the Honda World Motocross squad in 2011. It was another progressive season for the MX1 star, as he earned six podiums to his name, including an outstanding double moto win at the Grand Prix of Germany to take fourth in the series overall, despite missing a round with a back injury. The years 2012 and 2013 are years with varying results due to injuries. In 2012 he has too many DNF in the series to really compete for the podium. And last year he did miss three Grand Prix races by a fracture of the tibia, even during the Grand Prix of Sweden he does not score in both series. But at the end of the season everything is better and he can score three podiums in a row, so he knows how to finish his year and take place eight overall.
