Tim Gajser at the 2016 Monster Energy MXGP of Americas

Gajser makes MXGP history with rookie title

Oct 102016

“When I crossed the finish line I didn't know,” says Gajser whose impact has been felt in the manner and style that he has bossed the MXGP class but also in the numbers with almost a 50% win ratio. “It was amazing when I came over to the side of the track and everybody was waiting for me. It was an amazing feeling. After the celebration I went back to the truck and thought ‘it’s done…no more pressure’.


Tim, his family (father and trainer Bogomir is a constant aide, as is his brother) and the Honda collective were able to celebrate in style in North Carolina, but work was still pending. A triumphant return to Glen Helen lies ahead this week and then Gajser will be one of the star names at the 2016 Motocross of Nations at Maggiora in Italy a fortnight later.
