The Intu Xanadu track in Arroyomolinos, near Madrid Spain is hosting the 13th round of what is one of the most highly contested MXGP championships in recent years. Three riders are separated by just 10 points, with Team HRC’s Tim Gajser determined to come out on top in what should be an intense battle during these final six rounds.
The MXGP series visited the track at Arroyomolinos for the first time in 2020 with Gajser’s three-two results helping him open up a gap at the top of the championship standings from which he never looked back, eventually taking his third MXGP crown by over 100 points. On that day, solid starts were a key component to his success and he’ll be looking to get out of the gate well in these two motos after some disappointing races in France last week.
Still, with the points battle so close, the Honda CRF450RW rider knows that a replica of the German round just two weekends ago, where he took the overall with a three-one performance will see him regain the momentum and head into the Trentino triple-header – a track he really favours – with renewed belief that he can win his fifth world title in just seven years.
As always, this year, the MXGP class will take place purely on Sunday 17th October, with a joined free and timed practice to determine gate pick, followed by the two motos in the afternoon.
