Good Weather means Motocross!

As good weather sweeps through Europe motocross riders are doing their hard work and making sure they are ready for the big return to MXGP and MX2.

World MXGP champion Tim Gajser is back in action after racing a national championship race last week, and the Slovenian was excited to be back and seeing a big crowd in attendance for his return. Slovenia is on complete control of the coronavirus and it meant motocross returned in a big way.

“To be on the gate again after a couple of months, it was just the Slovenian championship, but the feeling was the same and we raced. I had a decent day, won the first race and then had problems with the bike in the second race. I had a DNF, but it was great to get on a race and get that feeling back, I enjoyed it a lot. It was amazing, and actually I didn’t know so many people would come, in the end I also did a signing session and it was really good.”

Meanwhile, the MXGP red plate owner Jeffrey Herlings has been riding at home in Holland and enjoying the great weather washing through Europe at the moment. The rider known as “The Bullet” just loves riding his KTM again.

“I am riding now five or six weeks, but we did take two or three months off, because as you know living in Holland everything was closed, tracks, events, everything. Now we are back it is weird not knowing when you really need to be ready and when you need to be in sharp. I mean the goal is still to be World champion. For now we don’t have a plan until a final calendar comes out. I know it is hard to make a calendar with everything that is happening in the World, but hopefully the next calendar is the one that is going to happen.”

Unfortunate news today was the fact Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider Pauls Jonass has had an accident and will need some time to recover. The Latvian will more than likely miss his home GP in August.

"Motocross sometimes puts you down. Unfortunately, I got injured in a practice crash while training for the forthcoming MXGP season restart, resulting in three broken ribs and five broken spinous processes. Doctors have recommended an extended period of rehabilitation before returning to riding. Hope to be back on bike asap!"

Whatever happens from now and until the MXGP and MX2 championships are running again, we all hope everyone good health and see you guys at the races again sooner rather than later.
