The Pietramurata track in the Trento region of northern Italy will host rounds 14, 15 and 16 as this exciting MXGP season nears its dramatic conclusion.
Currently sitting just 15 points behind the leader, Team HRC’s Tim Gajser enters into the intense triple-header week off the back of three podium performances – including winning in Germany – in the last three GPs. And he’ll be hoping to get back to his winning ways at a track that has seen some of the most momentous races of his career.
In 2015, Gajser won the first of his 33 overall victories at Trentino, on the way to his MX2 championship. He then won a moto in 2017 before the epic encounter of 2019 where the Slovenian went one-one, sparking wild scenes of celebration and setting him on his way to his second MXGP title. Then at the 2020 triple-header rounds, the Honda CRF450RW claimed 137 out of 150 points on offer, winning three of the six motos whilst being crowned MXGP world champion at the penultimate round of the season.
The first round in Trentino is on Sunday 24th October, before following rounds on Wednesday 27th and Sunday 31st, where for the first time in two years, the number of fans won’t be limited, which should ensure a large number of Slovenians crossing the border and cheering on their hero at all three events.
