Monster Energy MX of Nations
MX of Nations 2017
Tim Gajser put in a strong performance aboard his CRF450RW for Team Slovenia today at the 2017 Motocross of Nations, held in the UK at Matterley Basin.
The Team HRC rider was quick from the gate drop and although he didn’t have the same start as his qualifying race was able to dice through the difficult conditions to take a second place for Slovenia in the first race and a fifth in the second. Slovenia took a twelfth-place finish overall.
For Team Russia, Bobryshev had a strong first race today in conditions that he has openly expressed a dislike for. Although the Russian had a good first Moto his second start meant he had more work to do in the race and secured a twelfth-place finish. Team Russia ended up coming in 14th position overall.
Gajser now has a two-week break before heading to Las Vegas for the Monster Energy Cup on Saturday 14th October.
