HRC rider Tim Gajser continues to extend his MXGP championship points lead, from five to nine as he lines up for the two motos tomorrow. The Slovenian held a flag to flag victory ahead of Jeffrey Herlings and Brian Bogers.

Jorge Prado finished in sixth position after a poor start. Herlings slowly but surely closes up the points gap on Prado, it is now 60 points, but he is 69 points behind series leader Gajser.

Tim Gajser: It was good, I had a lot of fun. The track isn’t easy, and you had to be careful where to back it up a bit and I am really looking forward to tomorrow. Starts are important and I am getting good starts, so looking forward to tomorrow.

Championship points are now Tim Gajser 464pts, Jorge Prado 455pts, Jeffrey Herlings 395pts, Romain Febvre 327pts, Calvin Vlaanderen 305pts.

Gajser and Herlings first and second, then Bogers, Seewer, Vlaanderen, Guillod, Monticelli, Prado, Ostlund and Spies 20th. Track not too wet now, but still one dry line. Gajser on fire as his lead is around 10 seconds as Bogers pushed Herlings for second and Prado still in eight place.

Two laps and the lead by Gajser was 14 seconds, with Herlings second some two seconds ahead of Bogers, then Seewer, Vlaanderen, Guillod, Prado, Monticelli, Ostlund and Spies still in 10th.

Four laps in and the lead was 21 seconds, while Herlings was six seconds ahead of Bogers, who was five seconds ahead of Seewer, who was four seconds ahead of Vlaanderen, who was six seconds ahead of Prado. Yes, not a lot going on apart from riders going around in circles.

Five laps and the lead was still 21 seconds as both Gajser and Herlings don’t seem to be pushing too much, and rightly so. Prado catching both Vlaanderen and Seewer and trying to make the most of a somewhat muddy experience. One thing is sure, all this rain and mud is preparing the Spaniard for any wet weather in the AMA Nationals in 2025.

Rolling right along and still no passing, Gajser a 31 second lead over Herlings on lap nine, then Herlings, Bogers, Seewer, Vlaanderen, Prado, Guillod, Guadagini, Bonacorsi and Pancar. Gajser wins from Herlings and Bogers.
