Former MXGP world champion Tim Gajser has confirmed he’ll make his 2018 GP debut at Valkenswaard this weekend. He missed the opening round after a crash in a pre-season race at Mantova where he broke his jaw.
“Thanks to everyone who stood by my side in last couple of weeks. I am so thankful,” he said. “Smile and appreciate every moment of your life. Fall seven times. Stand up eight! Never give up. See you in Valkenswaard!”
HRC Honda had no 450 riders in the Argentina opener as Brian Bogers was still nursing an ankle injury from a winter crash. Bogers started riding again this week, but is unlikely to make a race return before the end of March.
