Team HRC is Russia-bound for the sixth Grand Prix of the year
Following a good round in Portugal Tim Gajser is looking forward to continuing his good form in Russia this weekend
Team HRC is currently travelling to the east shores of the Black Sea to take part in the sixth round of the 2018 Motocross World Championship, which takes place this upcoming Monday and Tuesday at Orlyonok in the Southern Federal District of Russia.

After having to watch last years Russian GP, Tim Gajser is keen to sample the Russian circuit.

"I‰Ûªm looking forward to my first racing experience at Orlyonok: last year I had to watch the races from the sofa and it wasn‰Ûªt much fun, but the track looked really good!"the former champion said. "We will also have many young fans attending the round, so it‰Ûªll surely be a very special event for everybody. It was nice to get on the podium last time out at Ì

Like Gajser, Calvin Vlaanderen will be racing on the Russian track at Orlyonok for the first time
HRC's MX2 campaigner Calvin Vlaanderen also yet to race the MXGP of Russia as he was also sidelined with injury when the track debued last year.

"I‰Ûªm leaving soon to Russia and I‰Ûªm excited for it," Vlaanderen enthused. "Obviously, it‰Ûªs a long trip to a place I‰Ûªve never been to before as I was injured last year. I‰Ûªve heard some good things about the track and I‰Ûªve seen some videos, so I cannot wait to go racing. My shoulder is still not 100% but I‰Ûªve had two good weeks on the bike and I‰Ûªm feeling ready for it!

HRC General Manager - MXGP - Marcus Pereira de Freitas concluded, "We are happy to have Tim with us this time around as he wasn‰Ûªt able to join the team last year due to injury. Neither him nor Calvin have raced here previously, so it will be a completely new experience for them in such a unique place and track like Orlyonok.

"What Tim did in Portugal was more in line with his potential and our all expectations, so our hope is that he will continue to build momentum and keep racing at the front ‰ÛÒ in order to also improve his position in the championship. Calvin needs some strong results and a smooth weekend to build some momentum, and I‰Ûªm sure he is up to the task now that he had some time to train and look after his shoulder."
