MXGP - Smart race to fourth for Gajser in Saturday’s qualifying action

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Tim Gajser has earned the fourth gate pick for the opening race of the #mxgp of #portugal after a convincing performance aboard his Team HRC Honda CRF450RW machine in today’s qualifying race at #agueda. Earlier in the day, the 21-year-old from Slovenia was fourth and second, respectively, in the free and timed practice sessions for the #mxgp class

Gajser had a bit of a moment as the gates dropped but was able to keep it on two wheels and, with a very tight line at turn one, he moved up to fourth place. From then on, the two-time world champion rode at a very consistent pace while trying to not lose touch with the riders ahead and making sure to keep the chasers at bay. Gajser consolidated his position in the remaining laps of the encounter and crossed the line 16 seconds ahead of fifth place.

MXGP action for the fifth round of the year will resume tomorrow morning at 10:45 with the 15-minute warm up, which will be followed by the two races at 14:15 and 17:10 local time (GMT +1).
