Tim Gajser is heading to the HRC Honda team’s “home” GP for the 10th round of the 2024 MXGP World Championship.

Maggiora, in northern Italy, is about an hour from the HRC European workshop and thus represents the easiest logistical challenge for the majority of the hard-working team members. For Gajser, it is around a seven-hour drive away from Slovenia.

Last time out at the MXGP of Latvia, Gajser reclaimed the red plate after his one-two-two results at the rain-hit circuit in Kegums, and he’ll be hoping to keep hold of it after this weekend’s action, which will end the first half of what has been an exciting and highly competitive championship thus far. The fiv time World Champion has won twice at the prestigious Maggiora in the past, in 2015 in the MX2 class and in 2022.

Reflecting on his recent success and looking ahead to Maggiora, Gajser stated, “The red-plate is back on my bike, which is always a nice feeling. I had a good round in Latvia and it would be great to follow that up in Italy at a track that I’ve won at a couple of times before. I know it won’t be easy but everyone is working so hard, and working so well together that I really trust what we are all doing. After all the recent bad weather we’ve had in the races, it would be great to have a dry round, just for the fans as well because I’m sure there will be a lot coming to support us at this amazing track.”

Unfortunately, there is once again a threat of bad weather in the area over the weekend, so all the riders will need to adapt to all conditions. However, Gajser has consistently demonstrated his ability to handle diverse weather throughout this 2024 campaign, so he won’t be worried by whatever the weather throws at the circuit.
