Jeffrey Herlings and Tim Gajser Presented with Replica MXGP Trophies in Lommel

LOMMEL (Belgium) 23 July 2022 – During a special moment at the MXGP of Flanders, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings and Team HRC’s Tim Gajser were presented with a replica versions of the MXGP Trophy.

In 2020, Infront Moto Racing unveiled the MXGP Championship Trophy that was designed to start a new tradition in the FIM Motocross World Championship, paying homage to all the past, present, and future world champions of the premier class.

Team HRC’s Tim Gajser was the first ever rider to receive the coveted cup for winning the title in 2020, meanwhile last year the trophy landed in the hands of the 2021 MXGP World Champion Jeffrey Herlings.

Herlings and Gajser were present for the occasion and shared a few words about the trophy and their two very different positions this season and later took some pictures to show off the coveted cup.

About the original trophy: The MXGP trophy is made up of two main materials, aluminium and carbon fibre base is formed by 6 pieces of anodized aluminium in three different shades: red at the bottom, and black and grey in the middle alongside the MXGP logo. In the grey parts we can find some filigrees inspired by motocross such as the starting gates of the tracks, the teeth on the bike sprockets, and more distinctive elements. The top of the trophy is formed by 16 twisted carbon fibre blades shaped into a cup to resemble the championship logo. The 20 stainless steel plaques wrapping the trophy are engraved with all the world champions’ names from 1957 until now in the main class.

The size and weight of the trophy represent the toughness of the competition, and its uneven sharp angles are meant to capture the skilled performance of the riders and the thrill and speed of the races.

The trophy was designed by the Barcelona-based Garcia Rojals Studio, that holds a long-time global reputation for designing outstanding racing trophies, including the Moto GP World Championship Trophy and the World SBK Trophy.
