2021 MXGP points leader Tim Gajser heads to Matterley Basin in Winchester this weekend for round two of the World Championship.

On board his Honda CRF450, the Slovenian rider has won races in 2016, 2019 and in 2020, and he’ll be looking to continue from where he left off, having won the second moto last year by over 23 seconds in what was amazing display of riding on the fast flowing, loamy circuit, filled with big jumps where he can really show-off his style.

“I always look forward to coming to Matterley Basin,” said Gajser. “I really enjoy riding there as it is really big, has nice jumps and the soil is amazing.

“I tried to make my Tiga243land like this as much as possible, with the wide turns and just because I love riding on this type of track. Since Russia I did a bit more training, but I also took a couple of days to relax a bit and just prepare myself for the rest of the season.

“It was such a long break before Russia but now we will have a lot of races in a short amount of time so it is important to pace myself and just make sure I will be at my best throughout the whole championship. I am very happy with how I started though and I hope to continue that this weekend.”
