This year’s MXGP World Championship had a different structure than usual, with all of the races taking place on the same day. This is something Tim Gajser would like to avoid in the future, which is why he favours two-day GPs.
‘I think I have been quite clear that I wish that we can go back to the two-day format. I believe it is better for a world championship to be held over two days, rather than just a one-day format which is what I ride when I go to Slovenia for a national event’, the Honda rider began to say, he who this year saw the championship slip away to Jeffrey Herlings in the last round.
‘It offers us a bit more of a chance to get things right on the bike and to make things a bit safer, because we can alter things and see how they work and still have time to change them back before the races,’ stated the number 243.
His preference isn’t, however, the same for everyone: ‘I know a lot of riders want the one-day format, but then they are also using practice tracks or tracks in the area on the Saturday because they want to work on things and get things perfect for raceday. Maybe the qualifying race could be incentivised more, or we just do timed practice for the gate pick but I believe that the MXGPs should be a two-day event’.
