Team HRC’s Tim Gajser fought hard in both motos of the MXGP of Lombardia, as he crossed the line within third position in both races. Unfortunately, a five-position penalty in race one dropped his scores to eight-three, as he was harshly judged to have gained an advantage after getting hit out of the track boundaries on the first corner.

Coming into this Mantova double-header – the final two rounds of this intense 2021 MXGP championship – Gajser sat in second position, just one point behind the leader as he looked to win his third world title in a row.

And after a sixth place in qualification, Gajser had a decent platform to attack this sandy track, but within one corner, his hopes of winning the race were all but over as he got knocked over the outside berm in the first corner. At that stage he believed he was in sixth position so in order to comply with the rules, he tried his best to re-join the action at the safest part of the track, in the same position.

However, the decision was made that he did gain places and as such, he was given a five-position penalty.
