Gajser and Vlaanderen Looking For More at RedSand
Tim Gajser had a welcome return to MXGP after missing the opening round of the year in Patagonia.
The third Grand Prix of the 2018 Motocross World Championship is due to get underway at the RedSand MX Park in Spain‰Ûªs Valencian Community, with Team HRC‰Ûªs Tim Gajser and Calvin Vlaanderen eager to jump back on their CRF machines to contest the second of two back-to-back events that kick start the European season of MXGP.

Gajser had a welcome return to MXGP after missing the opening round of the year in Patagonia. In the freezing cold of Valkenswaard, the two-time Motocross World Champion had a very encouraging season debut, as he showed flashes of his superlative talent aboard the Honda CRF450RW machine

"I can‰Ûªt wait to get to RedSand and take part in my second round of the year," Gajser enthused. "Valkenswaard wasn‰Ûªt too bad although I couldn‰Ûªt find the rhythm in the races and made some mistakes, but I‰Ûªm really happy to be back. I‰Ûªve been training hard since I came back and I feel like I‰Ûªm ready to go. We were riding at RedSand for a couple of days before the season started and I must say I really like the track, so things are looking good for the weekend."

Held back by poor health conditions in the Netherlands, Calvin Vlaanderen now aims to return to the type of form shown at Villa la Angostura earlier this month
Held back by poor health conditions in the Netherlands, Calvin Vlaanderen now aims to return to the type of form shown at Villa la Angostura earlier this month, where he displayed great speed and his iconic smooth-but-effective riding style, while continuing to gel with the all-new Honda CRF250RW.

"I‰Ûªm looking forward to getting behind the gate for round three this weekend. It‰Ûªs a new track on the calendar this year so that‰Ûªs exciting," Vlaanderen said. "I‰Ûªve seen some pictures and it looks like the organisers are doing a great job with getting the facility ready for the weekend. I was lucky enough to ride a few days there in the winter with the team so I have an idea of what to expect of the track. I know my mechanics will have my bike running great so I can‰Ûªt wait to have fun on my Honda this weekend."

HRC General Manager - MXGP - Marcus Pereira de Freitas, added, "It‰Ûªs time to dive into the third round of the series at RedSand, a new venue for the MXGP championship and one that looks exciting and challenging at the same time. Quite a few riders and teams ‰ÛÒ including us - have had a first taste of the new track during the off-season, so it‰Ûªll be familiar ground for many.

"We will go from -2å¡C of Valkenswaard to the 20å¡C more-or-less expected for the weekend, and I‰Ûªm sure it‰Ûªs something the riders will be happy about. We are looking forward to seeing the continuation of Tim‰Ûªs progress and I‰Ûªm sure Calvin will be eager to debut at this track too."
