MXGP World Champion Tim Gajser To Race 2019 Monster Energy Cup
Evidently there's no rest for the best, as MXGP Champion, Tim Gajser, will finish up his successful 2019 MXGP season at the final race in China and then head over to the Netherlands for MXON. After MXON Gajser and the HRC team will then set their sites on America as they have just announced they will be making another run at the Monster Energy Cup at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 19th.
Gajser just won his second premiere class world motocross championship title (2016, 2019) and is hoping that his return to MEC will be produce better results than when he competed in the event in 2017. The supercrosss style track will be a bit of a change compared to the extensive motocross tracks he's been so successful on. And with this year's triple track style format that was just announced, Gajser will have his work cut out for him and will really have to focus and prepare both physically and mentally. When he raced the MEC two years ago he looked extremely promising early on but then crashed in the first race and didn't compete the rest of the evening.
In a press release announcing his involvement in MEC Gajser stated, "I am really looking forward to racing the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas in October. It is a great event and I am excited to see how well I do on a supercross-style race track. I feel confident that we can go over to America and do a good job and I wish to thank Team HRC for working with me and helping me with this opportunity so that I'm as prepared as possible. Having raced the event in 2017, I know a little bit of what to expect but I am still very excited to try it again and feel like I will be able to enjoy the experience a lot more this time around."
