Team HRC‰Ûªs Tim Gajser wrapped up both the MX1 and the Superfinal championships in the Internazionali d‰ÛªItalia, winning five of the six races, and finishing second behind team-mate Mitch Evans in the other.
This made it a clean sweep for the new Honda CRF450RW, which also led every lap of the six motos and included five holeshots across the rounds in Riola Sardo, Ottobiano and this weekend in Mantova.
While the 2020 MXGP world championship starts in England in three weeks‰Ûª time, this was a great way to warm-up and provide some very important gate drops before the first round of the series in which Gajser will look to defend his title. The Slovenian had great starts in all the races and his confidence will have been boosted by how well the new machine performed in the variety of track surfaces these past three weekends.
"I‰Ûªm very happy with how this series went, to win five races and to get great starts and lead laps was an important beginning to 2020 for me," Gajser said. "With the new CRF450RW we‰Ûªve been working hard to get everything setup well and these results prove what a good job everyone has done. Now I have a little break but I will keep working hard and make sure to carry this momentum into England."
