Extending his lead in the world championship, team HRC’s Tim Gajser continued his podium streak this weekend as he took second in the MXGP of Trentino, Italy.
In the first race, Gajser found himself in a heavy weight battle between Cairoli and Tonus after making an early mistake chasing for the lead. The mistake threw him off his rhythm, so he kept his head down and rode a sensible race, coming in third. In the second race he came back fighting, taking the holeshot and the lead. True to form, the Slovenians refined riding style enabled him to put down some fast laps early on giving him enough of a gap to hold the lead and take the win.
Meanwhile Bobryshev narrowly missed the podium after a stunning comeback ride in the second race. The Russian had been suffering from the leg injury he obtained in qualifying yesterday but after struggling in the first race, he was able to put the pain behind him in the second to finish third.
