Reigning world champion and team HRC Honda rider Tim Gajser heads to the brand new sand venue, the Oss circuit in the netherlands.
While many of the GP riders are based close to this new venue, Gajser is unfamiliar with the circuit and Sunday will be the first time he’s ridden the track in any capacity.
However, as proved by his success last year, the Slovenian rider adapts quickly to new challenges, and learning and getting setup for this MXGP of the Netherlands will just be another obstacle to overcome as he looks for his third MXGP world championship title in a row.
“It is always nice to go to new tracks and race at different places and I’m extremely excited to race at Oss this weekend,’ said Gajser.
“The last round in Maggiora didn’t go to plan, but I’m still leading the championship and I’ve been working hard to get myself ready for this round. While I’ve never ridden there, I know it’s sandy and that will make things interesting as we haven’t raced on that surface this year so everyone will be trying extra hard to show their speed.”
“Still, I am confident in the work that I’ve done this off-season and I know the team will have done everything possible to make sure we are all as ready as can be for Sunday.”
