Tim Gajser extends the points lead in Maggiora

Gajser maggiora 24 3

Going 1-2 on the day, Team HRC’s Tim Gajser took his second overall of the season, in perfect conditions at the prestigious Maggiora circuit in Italy. After a rain-hit track victory in qualification yesterday, the track crew did a tremendous job to get the circuit ready for the two motos today, where Gajser also showed his prowess on a dry, rutted track to take the GP overall.

These 1-2 results, combined with the win in qualification yesterday means that he now reaches the halfway point of the series, an imposing 34-points up on second place and 71-points up on third place. It has been a great run of form for the #243 and he now heads to Indonesia for the Lombok double-header full of confidence and looking to increase that gap even further, in a country that he enjoys visiting, even if the actual Lombok circuit will be a new experience for the five-time world champion.

Jorge Prado talk about his second moto DNF:

Tim Gajser:It is great to win another GP and put in three good races. I’m a little bit disappointed to have that small tip-over otherwise I’d have gone one-one-one and that would have really been great, but still, I can’t complain about how this weekend went. Everyone in the whole of Team HRC works so hard and they do it for days like this so a big thanks to everyone and now we have a weekend off before going to Indonesia which I think is an important couple of rounds for the series. I am looking forward to them because they will also be at a new track for me, and that is always nice“.
