Round four of the 2019 Motocross World Championship was held today at the spectacular Pietramurata track in Trentino, Northern Italy and it was Team HRC’s Tim Gajser who took the overall victory in the MXGP class – battling all the way with an on-form Tony Cairoli. Tim’s ecstatic army of devoted fans filled the valley with yellow smoke and screams as their Slovenia hero topped the podium once more. The EMX250 class also featured Hondas battling at the front of the field.

Team Assomotor RedMoto Honda’s Stephen Rubini backed up his round one second place with another second overall in Italy and his teammate Pierre Goupillon finished the day with a solid fourth overall.

St.Jean d’Angely, France hosts the next round round of the EMX250 championship on 25/26 May where Rubini is hoping his home fans will give him the lift he needs to top the podium.

It was a good weekend overall. I had some good starts in the races and pushed hard.
On Saturday the track was quite muddy and it wasn’t easy to pass. I found it hard to focus for the whole race so I had a small crash in race one. The track was drier on Sunday and there were more racing lines. I didn’t win today, but I’m happy with second. I took some good points for the championship and I’ll try hard to get the win at the next race.

It’s been a really positive weekend for our EMX250 and MX2 riders - and of course Tim Gajser’s double win in MXGP.

Stephen Rubini made it onto the podium again in second overall - and fourth overall for Pierre Goupillon’s is really good for the championship. We’re still denied the race wins that we’re capable of - so we’ll all keep working towards the victories we deserve.

We now have a short break until the next rounds - so everyone can regroup, recover from injury and continue to work to realise their full potential.
