FIM MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – ROUND #13 – FINLAND

TIM GAJSER GETTING USED TO PODIUMS!

In Finland on the deep sandy track of Hyvinkaa the young slovenian TIM GAJSER did it again collecting his third consecutive podium finish with an extraordinary 2nd overall in the MX2 Grand Prix behind champion Jeffrey Herlings. The weekend did not start in the best way for GAJSER who arrived in Finland with a pulled muscle in his left leg and had to deal with the pain on the Saturday on a sandy track which was not his preferred surface but the valiant kid on Sunday has overcome all the difficulties scoring two impressive 3 + 3 finish for the second overall of the day and climbing to the fifth place of the World Championship and closing dramatically on the third place of the overall who can be the goal for the last four rounds of the 2014 season.

The young italian Filippo GRIGOLETTO, former Honda 150 European Champion, tried once more very hard to qualify for the European Championship EMX2 on Saturday on the heavy finnish sand but failed to enter within the top 40 riders.

Giacomo Gariboldi, Team Manager: “On saturday looking at the physical conditions of Tim we just wished to finish in the top ten of this GP trying to limit the damages but Tim has surprised us once more with a fantastic performance despite the pulled muscle, but this kid is stronger than any other rider I have ever seen and has such a big heart and he never gives up, I just can say that I’m delighted to be able to work with him. Kei tried hard but he also had a small injury on his thumb and needs now a bit of time to heal it, but he is a fighter and is another who never gives up.”
