Team HRC Head Into 2019 MXGP Season Opener in Good Shape

Posted:

Team HRC are ready for 2019
The first round of the 2019 world motocross championships starts this weekend at the picturesque track in Villa La Angostura, Argentina where all three Team HRC riders are excited to get the season underway.

MXGP riders Tim Gajser and Brian Bogers, as well as MX2 rider Calvin Vlaanderen come into the year with a good pre-season under their belts and are excited for the first gate drop on Sunday 3rd March.

With Gajser fresh from a victory in the MX1 class at the last round of the Italian championship, hopes are high that the Slovenian rider can repeat his impressive 1-1 performance that he achieved at the 2017 MXGP of Patagonia.

"I‰Ûªm really forward to going to Argentina. The start of the season is finally here after a long winter break, and it‰Ûªs great to be heading down to that beautiful area," Gajser said. "The preseason races went well, and I‰Ûªm happy with how everything else has gone in preparations for this year. I‰Ûªm feeling ready and I love this track, with the big jumps and the fast speed and I can‰Ûªt wait to start the 2019 season."

Brian Bogers is also hoping for good results from round one.

"I‰Ûªm happy with how the preseason went and the training that I did this winter and I feel ready for this first round in Argentina," Bogers said. "I‰Ûªm looking forward to getting back down there, because I missed last year with my injury, but this year I‰Ûªm fit and healthy and I hope for some good results and it‰Ûªs also nice to be back at an MXGP with the whole team."

Calvin Vlaanderen feels ready to challenge for the MX2 title and is enthusiastic about getting the season underway.

"It‰Ûªs been quite a long wait since we last had an MXGP so the nerves are quite high, but I can‰Ûªt wait for that gate to drop this Sunday," Vlaanderen enthused. "The expectations are quite high so there is a bit of pressure that goes along with that, but I‰Ûªm looking forward to having some fun out there. It‰Ûªs a bit a clichÌ©, that you can‰Ûªt win a championship in the first round, but you can lose it so the goal is to ride consistent the whole weekend and to fight for the podium. I feel like I‰Ûªve done everything that I needed to do this preseason and I‰Ûªm feeling the best I‰Ûªve ever felt so now it‰Ûªs just a case of putting it all together this weekend."

In its fifth year of running, this event is known as a real favourite to both fans and riders, with the wide track layout providing plenty of opportunity for some great racing action for the always enthusiastic Argentinian crowd.
