Team Honda HRC MXGP rider Tim Gajser has confirmed that he will be on the starting line for the 2018 MXGP of Europe at Valkenswaard, the second round of the 2018 Monster Energy FIM Motocross World Championship. Gajser was sidelined for the opening round of the series in Argentina due to a jaw injury that he suffered in a preseason event. The impact with the handlebars required a handful of surgeries to repair the damage and time off to recover.
In other Team Honda HRC MXGP news, Brian Bogers has recently resumed riding after a long recovery from a foot injury that occurred during the offseason while training in Italy. When Boger will race for the first time in 2018, his rookie season in the MXGP ranks is still undetermined.
