Tim Gajser has claimed fourth place in today’s qualifying race at Matterley Basin aboard his Honda CRF450RW, a result that allows the Team HRC rider to have a positive outlook ahead of tomorrow’s two races for the MXGP of Great Britain.
Gajser was very consistent throughout this opening day of action, and after being third and fifth at the end of free and timed practice, he got a great jump out of the gate and found himself battling for second place with Glenn Coldenhoff. Despite being faster than his Dutch rival in many occasions throughout the moto, Tim did not manage to complete a pass for second position and, during the third lap from the end, he was overtaken by Coldenhoff’s team mate, and fellow Dutchman, Jeffrey Herlings.
Gajser smartly kept himself out of trouble in the last two laps and crossed the line fourth. The sixth-round races of the MXGP class are scheduled to begin at 14:15 and 17:10 local time (GMT +1).
