Tim Gajser on his Trentino triumph

 

Tim Gajser was the star at the Grand Prix of Trentino. Following a painful drought of a year and a half, he finally climbed atop the top step of the premier-class podium again. The battles that led to that triumph are going to go down in history too. It was a crazy weekend, for many different reasons, and MX Vice editor Lewis Phillips was present at Pietramurata to discuss everything that occurred alongside the Dolomites with the HRC star.

MX Vice: This is a big race for you each year. Fans are crazy. It is basically your home MXGP, so there are a lot of expectations and you have been building up to this too. You have been fast and won a moto. It has been coming, but you got the job done. 1-1. Your first 1-1 since Mexico in 2017, which was a long time ago. Two years ago. That is a long time. I guess you are just buzzing? 

Tim Gajser: I am just like… When I came across the finish line, it felt like my first MX2 win in 2015. It was kind of the same feeling, like something special. We were building race-by-race, like you said, and actually here in Arco we managed to make a perfect weekend with nice races, nice battles with Tony, great fans from Slovenia and from everywhere actually. The atmosphere was just unbelievable. I am just so happy and thankful.
