Tim Gajser to race Monster Energy Cup

Posted:

Tim Gajser will make his hotly-anticipated debut in the Monster Energy Cup on Saturday 14th October at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, as he and the #243 Honda CRF450RW will tackle this flagship event with Team HRC.

Gajser is a big fan of supercross and regularly trains on his own private Supercross track in Slovenia. He will take on the three 10 lap main events for the first time in his career working out of the American Honda Rig.

"I am really looking forward to racing in the Monster Energy Cup this year," Gajser enthused.

"I want to go there, have fun and enjoy it as racing in a stadium in America is a whole new experience for me. I have an awesome new limited edition kit from Fox to debut on the night which I think everyone will love. Obviously when I enter a race the goal is to win but this is completely something new for me as I am entering without any real expectations of where I will be.

"I have a track at home that I can train on so after MXGP I will add more Supercross elements to it to help me prepare for the race. I want to come out to America a week early to practice on an American Supercross track," the defending World Motocross Champion concluded

HRC General Manager - MXGP, Roger Harvey, added, "Team HRC are really looking forward to seeing how Tim performs in this prestigious event alongside many of his American counterparts.

"It is one of the most popular none championship events that is in the supercross calendar and draws interest from around the world. This is the first time that Tim has ridden at this type of event, we were originally scheduled to race this event with Tim in 2016 but a shoulder injury prevented his participation. It goes without saying that Tim will have a great deal of support from the MXGP paddock with everyone wanting him to put on a good show on his CRF450RW."
