A solid day in Spain, saw Team HRC’s Tim Gajser maintain his third position in the MXGP championship battle after his four-two results gave him third overall at the Intu-Xanadu Arroyomolinos track.

Located just outside of Madrid, the venue was packed with new tribunes which the 26,000 Spanish fans filled to the brim, with enthusiastic and vociferous support. The supporters at the last two rounds have really added an extra element that had been missing for over 18 months and it is great to see world championship motocross returning to normality.

On the track, Gajser started the day with second gate pick after one of his strongest qualification sessions of the season, a statement that he didn’t want a repeat of France where he struggled with a poor gate pick. He then kept this momentum in both races with excellent starts that gave him a chance of battling for the lead. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to capitalise fully in either race but they were encouraging signs that the Honda CRF450RW is still one of the fastest round the first bend.
