Team HRC rider Tim Gajser will head into the 2020 MXGP championship with a lot of momentum. His 2019 season saw him win his third Motocross World championship and score his 24th Grand Prix victory. A stellar season and one the propelled him into legendary status. Only a dozen or so riders in the sports history have done better statistically, and the Slovenian isn’t about to slow down on his progress.
Last weekend in the opening International of the season Gajser scored 1-1 results and as he continues his preparation for the opening Grand Prix, set for the Matterley Basin circuit in England, his confidence builds.
On his victory last weekend, he saw many improvements, but also knows that when the first round of the FIM World Motocross Championship comes around, the winning becomes more difficult.
Gajser continues to try and find new ways of getting better, and with a handful of MX2 riders moving up from the 250 class, he knows that the competition in the MXGP class is only going to get tougher.
“Every year some riders from MX2 come to MXGP and it makes it bigger and even more good riders. Already we have the great names, but this year even more good guys and the motivation you need to improve, and I always say it could be better. Even winning the races and the titles, I always feel I can do better. Last year I changed many things and I was super happy with that, so basically we try and stay with the same program, but you can always improve and I tried to improve some things and we try and do that every year, that is the goal.”
So now onto England in a month’s time, where he will hope he can battle the likes of Antonio Cairoli, Jeffrey Herlings and Glenn Coldenhoff, in what many people are saying will be the toughest season ever in Grand Prix racing.
