Team HRC raring to go in 201925/01/2019
Team HRC will once again feature three riders as they begin their assault on reclaiming the 2019 MXGP and MX2 motocross world championship titles.
Tim Gajser (MXGP), Brian Bogers (MXGP) and Calvin Vlaanderen (MX2) have another year under their belts with the factory Honda team and will head to the Argentinian opener on March 3rd full of confidence that they can challenge for honours.
Slovenian double world champion Tim Gajser finished off the 2018 season strongly with multiple podiums positions, and he’ll be hoping to continue that good form when the 2019 campaign gets underway in Villa La Angostura, where he took victory in 2017 with a double-moto win. With three top-two finishes in the last four events, Gajser is looking for even better results as he bids to get back the MXGP crown that he won on his Honda CRF450RW in 2016.
After an injury-hit 2018, Brian Bogers is hoping to put all that behind him and focus on having a successful campaign this year with Team HRC. The young Dutch rider only completed one event in what would have been his debut season in the MXGP class, but after a good off-season this winter, he is ready to show the world what he is truly capable of.
Calvin Vlaanderen returns aboard his Honda CRF250RW as he looks to challenge the best riders in the world in the MX2 championship. After placing sixth last year, Vlaanderen will look to climb the rankings in 2019 and add to his maiden overall victory which he achieved at the MXGP of Indonesia. He will also be hoping to improve upon his nine top-three moto results and five podium finishes, in what is an extremely competitive 250cc class.
The 2019 MXGP Motocross World Championships will begin at Villa La Angostura, Argentina on March 2-3.
