The first round of the 2019 world motocross championships starts this weekend at the picturesque track in Villa La Angostura, Argentina where all three Team HRC riders are excited to get the season underway. MXGP riders Tim Gajser and Brian Bogers, as well as MX2 rider Calvin Vlaanderen come into the year with a good pre-season under their belts and are excited for the first gate drop on Sunday 3rd March.
With Gajser fresh from a victory in the MX1 class at the last round of the Italian championship, hopes are high that the Slovenian rider can repeat his impressive 1-1 performance that he achieved at the 2017 MXGP of Patagonia, while Bogers and Vlaanderen are also hoping that they’ll get good results from round one.
In its fifth year of running, this event is known as a real favourite to both fans and riders, with the wide track layout providing plenty of opportunity for some great racing action for the always enthusiastic Argentinian crowd.
The on-track action will get underway on Saturday 2nd March with the first free practice for the MX2 class at 10:45 local time (GMT -3), while the four races are scheduled to begin at 12:15 on Sunday 3rd March.
