Hard Work Pays Off for Tim Gajser at Uddevalla
Tim Gajser made a long awaited returned to the top step of the podium as he took the overall in Uddevalla at the MXGP of Sweden.

Gajser, who hasn‰Ûªt taken an overall win since the Mexican GP earlier this season, took a first and second securing him the win. The HRC rider took a comfortable win in the first race but the Slovenian had his work cut out in the second. Febvre led and Herlings put some early pressure on Gajser to take second. Gajser remained focused on a track that was difficult to pass and bought the CRF450RW home in second place, which was enough to give him the overall.

"It is good to be back on the top step after quite a long time!" Gajser said.

"We have been working so hard for this, we have had some bad weekends and some bad races but we are now getting better and better. I am grateful for everything my team have done and I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone around me. My goal for the end of the season is now to do try and win some more GP‰Ûªs to finish the season strong.

"I knew in the second race that if I got second I would take the overall. I made a small mistake at the beginning of the race and then Jeffrey passed me for second. Then, he had a problem with his bike which allowed me to get back into second and catch Romain. It was tough to pass him so the last couple of laps I stepped back a little bit as I knew I had done enough to take the win.

The FIM World motocross championship now takes a one week break before we head into the final flurry of races of the season. The first of these will be stateside at a new track; WW motocross park, Jacksonville.
