EUROPE. Team HRC’s Tim Gajser has claimed his second podium of the season and so-far best result of the year with a second place overall in the MXGP of Germany, after a brace of convincing second places in today’s two motos at Teutschenthal. As the eighth round of the season draws to a close, Gajser moves up to sixth place in the championship standings.

Gajser was quick out of the gate in the first moto and, after some back and forth in the opening lap with a couple of opponents, he managed to move up to third. He then began a long and hard chase on Paulin, eventually closing the gap on the Frenchman as the race entered its final part. After overtaking his rival on lap 14, Gajser never looked back and, with great speed, he built a 7.7 seconds gap up to the finish line.

The 21-year-old Slovenian was again sprinting within the top-five as the MXGP approached the first corners of the race, but he quickly rose up to second position after moving once again past Paulin. Gajser managed to keep his opponent at bay for the whole duration of the encounter, despite not being able to pull away. He eventually crossed the line again in second place to seal a well-deserved second place overall in front of the German crowd.

The team will now return to their headquarters in Italy to get ready for the MXGP of Great Britain, which will take place at the glorious Matterley Basin motocross track in a fortnight’s time.
