At the 12th round of the 2019 #mxgp championship, Team HRC’s #timgajser won his seventh overall in a row, setting an all-time record for Honda riders in world championship motocross. While other riders struggled with the heat and tricky track surface at the Semarang facility in central Java, #indonesia, Gajser took one holeshot and led every lap of both races to cruise to his eighth overall of the season, extending his lead at the top of the #mxgp championship to 173 points.

With news breaking on Monday that his nearest championship rival would be missing the rest of the season, Gajser knew that he had to remain focused and ride smart in order to keep his momentum going, and that’s exactly what he was able to do when the gate dropped in both motos. A holeshot in race one made things relatively straight-forward for the #243 Honda #crf450rw rider, as he gradually opened up a gap at the front of the field before cruising to the chequered flag. He came very close to another holeshot in race two but rounded the first bend in third position.

He then made a couple of passes on the first lap and once again set about breaking clear for would be his sixth maximum points haul of this amazing season. With just six rounds remaining, he knows he can’t take his hand off the throttle just yet, so his aim is to keep heading into each GP to have fun, starting with the next round in the Czech Republic.

Unfortunately it wasn’t such a positive day for teammate #brianbogers as the Dutch rider went 11-13 for 12th overall. He never managed to find a good rhythm in either #moto and wasn’t able to make the impact he wanted, as he looked to challenge again for a top 10 position. Bogers will hope to find his form again in the Dutch championship next weekend, before getting back to world championship motocross at Loket the following week on July 27-28.
