Jorge Prado on Profitable MXGP of West Nusa Tenggara in Lombok, Indonesia

MX Massive’s Geoff Meyer despatched us this textual content after the MXGP of Lombok over the weekend.

Whereas it was Jorge Prado and Jeffrey Herlings who took victory in Lombok the final 10 days, it’s nonetheless Tim Gajser, leaving Indonesia with the identical factors lead he had coming into these two rounds, which makes me really feel like, he’s going to be arduous to beat because the final eight rounds are performed out. With a 34 hole between himself and Prado, the MXGP title isn’t being packed up and despatched particular supply to Slovenia, however the truth the worst outcomes for the HRC man up to now are his ends in the mud of Portugal and second spherical Spanish Grand Prix.

Even his 3-5 ends in the primary of two races in Lombok didn’t trigger him an excessive amount of concern and in contrast to the DNF outcomes from each Prado and Herlings, life hasn’t been too arduous for Gajser simply but. He has by no means gone worse than third within the Saturday qualifiers, with 5 wins and 6 second place finishes and his Sunday moto outcomes are loaded with first, second, and third outcomes. We caught up with him as he nursed a slight hand harm after Sunday’s press convention.

MX Massive: A great way to return again after lacking the rostrum final weekend?
Tim Gajser: Sure, final weekend we didn’t really feel good on the monitor. Perhaps additionally the set-up was off, and the bike was too stiff, however we did an incredible job making the adjustments and it labored higher. I loved it extra, however disgrace concerning the two crashes, as a result of we had been pushing with Jeffrey and completely satisfied to go residence protected. Getting three holeshots is a good accomplishment for me and for the group and I need to thank all of them for all of the work they do. I’m very completely satisfied to be heading again to Europe with the red-plate and to be match, wholesome and nonetheless feeling like I’m using nicely. Now now we have Loket, which isn’t my finest monitor, however I all the time get a whole lot of assist and I’m excited to see all my Slovenian followers. And in addition, an enormous thanks to the hospitality proven by all of the Indonesian followers and supporters who actually add a lot to this race, and I hope to see you all once more subsequent 12 months.

You regarded drained after the primary moto. What did you do to recuperate:
Sure, precisely. After the primary one, I didn’t really feel the perfect, you already know. We didn’t have a whole lot of time to recuperate, like one and a half hours, however we recovered nicely, the group did a great job, and we had been prepared for the second race.

What have you ever accomplished to your hand [Gajser had an ice pack on his hand]?
Nothing too dangerous. Once I had a second, I misplaced the hand off the handlebar and hit the clutch, it’s okay. I simply have to put ice on it.
