Tim Gajser will not be a Monster athlete in 2017 it’s now confirmed.

The first indication came when the MXGP world champion took part in the Team HRC MXGP photoshoot in a red Fox helmet.

Negotiations were still ongoing at that time and as the early season Italian International series progressed, the Slovenian ace raced with a full black helmet at round two.


The 2016 deal that saw the world champion clad in Monster Energy branding was through Gariboldi Honda, but with the squad now officially HRC, fresh guidelines applied.
