Agueda, Portugal is the host for this fourth round of the 2022 Motocross World Championship, where Team HRC’s Tim Gajser will look to make it four wins in a row as he tries to extend his lead at the top of MXGP class.
The scenic hard-pack track, an hour south of Porto hasn’t hosted a round since 2019 where Gajser went one-one, starting off his seven-race win streak on his way to what was his third world title. Now, a few years later, the #243 is hoping that Agueda is kind to him again as he hopes to keep his new win-streak alive and increase his points gap from the 17 points it currently stands at.
Team mate Mitch Evans will also head to Portugal with confidence, knowing that in 2019, he stood on the podium in the MX2 class, after he produced his best results of that year with four-three moto finishes for third place overall. Combine this with his best results of the year last time out in Patagonia-Argentina and things are definitely on the rise for the young Australian.
With the weather looking good this weekend, the riders should be able to enjoy riding the distinctive orange dirt once again across the two days. First up will be free practice (11:20), followed by timed practice (14:00) which will give the gate-picks for the qualifying race that afternoon (17:00). The result of that race will then determine the gate-picks for the two points-scoring motos on Sunday afternoon (14:15 & 17:10).
