Team HRC celebrated two podium finishes at yesterday’s MXGP of Germany – round eight of the FIM Motocross World Championship – with Tim Gajser ending the day second overall in MXGP and his team-mate Calvin Vlaanderen taking third in MX2.
“We are happy with what we achieved this weekend,” said Gajser. “Being on the podium is always a great feeling. We have 12 more rounds so now the goal is to continue building momentum and try to keep it as high as possible.
“I enjoyed riding my Honda throughout the whole weekend and I managed to maintain a consistently fast pace up to the chequered flag which is a very good sign. I was much more relaxed, confident and comfortable on track than in Latvia – this is why we were fifth there and second here!
“Now we go home, train hard and get ready for Matterley Basin which is a track I really love.”
For South African Vlaanderen, Teutschenthal was his first podium finish in over a year.
“It was a great day,” he said. “I’m very happy to be on the podium for the first time this season. We had two solid motos with good starts, good riding and good speed. The bike was really working perfectly, so thanks to the team for the great job.
“It’s good to put the team for the first time on the box and I hope from now on I’ll be able to do it again many more times.”
