Tim Gajser has a great chance in Italy
New weekend of motocross. The show moves this time to Italy, the antepenultimate test, with the incentive to check whether Tim Gajser, the young leader of the World Championship, will be able to virtually kill off his first World Championship in the premier class. Yamaha announced after the fall of Romain Febvre in England that he would not run this weekend, which may again result in an awful lot of points for the Slovenian.
In Winchester, Gajser took the double victory and extended his lead by 50 points. Now, being aware that Febvre will not run in Mantova, the rookie aged 19, has the opportunity of his lifetime to win the championship. And precisely on a stage dominated by Febvre, who took the double victory last year.
Antonio Cairoli has a great chance to climb to second place. The Italian should do it unless he suffers a so disastrous abandonment or falls. He is now just three points behind Febvre and will face the end of the season as second placed in the World Championship standings, which seems almost decided.
Meanwhile, Jezyk Racing Team pilots will look to improve their results from last week. Eric Leijtens was 16th in England in the category EMX250, while Álex Santín repeated in the 31st place in the 125.Tuitear
