Team Honda HRC MXGP rider Tim Gajser experienced a tough weekend at the 2017 MXGP of Latvia. A pair of hard crashes on Sunday afternoon, one after a run-in with Jose Butron during the first moto and another in the sand rollers during the second moto, kept the defending champion from scoring the maximum points possible and required a medical evaluation. The crash in the rollers was by far the worst of the two, because Gajser slammed the ground in one of the fastest sections of the track. With 14-31 scores on the day, Gajser lost the championship lead to rival Antonio Cairoli.
Team Honda HRC MXGP has announced that after the evaluation by doctors, it’s been determined that nothing is broken or seriously damaged on Gajser’s body. He will spend the time between now and the next round, the 2017 MXGP of Germany, resting to relieve the soreness he is currently experiencing.
