The Grand Prix of Bulgaria drew the FIM Motocross World Championship up to the fifth round of 18 and the spectacular but rutted-out Sevlievo circuit was the stage on which Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe’s Glen Coldenhoff took seventh position overall on his works RM-Z250.

Some 20,000 spectators found some dry spots on the Sevlievo hillside as decent weather on Saturday - and in the first part of race-day – dried the facility that had been hit by rain during the week. The effect of the showers on the track helped to create a bumpy and rutty surface for what is usually a hard-pack, one-lined racing course. The soil was softer than usually found at the impressive circuit near the small town of the same name and the riders enjoyed more traction; especially compared to the slick dirt found last week in Italy. From the middle of the afternoon on Sunday, the black skies returned and the second moto for the MX2 collective was a muddier and deceptive greasy challenge.
