Gajser Wins Saturday - MXGP

  • Race Report

HRC rider Tim Gajser took his red plate to a victory on Saturday in Germany, making a solid start in fourth place, before passing early leader Jorge Prado when the rains came and walked away to win it from Prado and Romain Febvre. Fourth was Jeffrey Herlings as the top four in the championship continue to show their class. The series leader extends his championship points lead to six points.

Tim Gajser: I didn't have the best jump, but it helped that I was on the inside and I came out third or fourth. I caught Jorge and he was riding good, but I made a pass and controlled the race. Really happy.

Championship points are now Tim Gajser 358pts, Jorge Prado 352pts, Romain Febvre 327pts, Jeffrey Herlings 294pts and Pauls Jonass 258pts.

MXGP Qualification race

Guadagnini holeshot, but Prado quickly into first, then the Italian, Jacobi, Gajser, Jonass, Herlings, Seewer, Guillod, Febvre, Coldenhoff 10th. Prado out front and that isn’t good for the others as he gets away quickly.

Guadagnini holding up the riders as Prado walks off into the distance. Gajser passed Jacobi, and then into second place. Having won here four times and always consistent, can he catch the lighting fast Spaniard. Herlings moved past Jonass and Febvre passed Seewer and Gajser catching Prado. Gajser the quickest lap of the moto and just 1.4 behind the leader.

Herlings early lap speed just not what it once was as he struggled to find a way past Jacobi. On lap two the lead was two seconds behind Prado and Gajser, with Guadagnini in third, then Jacobi, Herlings, Febvre, Jonass, Seewer, Guillod, and Coldenhoff.

Prado and Gajser had made a big gap between themselves and the pack, with Guadagini some eight seconds back in third. Herlings all over Jacobi for fourth and the rain has started to fall. Is this the chance for Gajser to catch the leader? Herlings into fourth and the rain while hard for a short period seemed to slow down.

Seewer moved past Jonass and Prado and Gajser now 10 seconds ahead of third placed man Guadagnini. On lap four it was Prado, Gajser, Guadagini, Herlings, Febvre, Seewer, Jacobi, Guillod, Jonass and Coldenhoff.

Gajser all over Prad and the rain probably helping the Slovenian as it was raining hard now.Gajser went for a pass, but couldn’t make it and this is going to get very interesting as the track has changed completely with the rain. It isn’t muddy, just wet and slippery.

Gajser and Prado really battling hard and nothing between the two. Gajser a slight mistake and Prado get away a little, but Prado doesn’t want to concede in this conditions. Prado a big mistake and Gajser into the lead. Prado very slow now and maybe having a problem with his wrist. Febvre moved past Herlings and on lap six it was Gajser, Prado, Guadagini, Febvre, Herlings, Seewer, Jacobi, Jonass, Bonacorsi, and Vlaanderen 10th.

Febvre into third as he passed Guadagnini and Gajser 3.4 seconds ahead of Prado on lap seven. Febvre 18 seconds off the lead of Gajser. Herlings also moved past the Italian Husky rider and on lap nine it was Gajser with a seven second lead, then Prado, Febvre, Herlings, Guadagnini, Seewer, Jonass, Vlaanderen, Jacobi, and Bonacorsi in 10th. Gajser wins it from Prado and Febvre, with Herlings fourth. The big four continue to dominate.
