A GREAT

Career

scrub king

Flamboyant style

Since the end of 2013 when ‘Tiga 243’ was picked up by Honda and Giacomo Gariboldi’s eponymous outfit, the resurgence of Gajser has been meteoric. His flamboyant style mixed with his otherworldly ability to scrub has won him fans and fame across the world as well as a string of

European and World Championships, becoming Honda’s first back-to-back World Champion in the MXGP era at just 19 years old, and then being crowned World MXGP champion once again in 2019 when he broke numerous records on his way to a third world title.¨

enormous talent

Working through the championship classes

Just twelve days after he turned 19 years of age, Tim Gajser realised a dream when he clinched his first MX2 World Championship crown in 2015. Tiga243 was clearly an enormous talent, working his way through the championship classes leaving a wake of European and World titles, but this MX2 title was special.

Just two years after the family were facing the prospect of having to stop, here was Honda’s first small-capacity world title in 20 years. Gajser and Honda continued to blaze a trail, shocking many in the motocross world by announcing that the young Slovenian would immediately move to the MXGP class in 2016. Many doubted, but Honda and Tiga243 believed.

less than a year on from his title

Gajser did
it again

In what was a season of records, and remarkably less than a year on from his MX2 title, Gajser did it again and took the MXGP World Championship crown, in his rookie year and in dominant fashion. Whereas he clinched the MX2 title in the

last round of the season, before his 19th year was run Gajser sealed the MXGP crown with three motos remaining in the season, underlying the powerhouse he was in his maiden season aboard the Honda CRF450RW:

26 OVERALL WINS

An unrivalled twenty six Grand Prix victories

54 MOTO WINS

Fifty-four moto wins

69 OVERALL PODIUMS

An unprecedented sixty-nine GP podiums

LED 144 LAPS

31% of the whole currently unfinished season

In taking his back-to-back MXGP title, Gajser became the first big-class World Champion for Honda in 16 years, since Fred Bolley triumphed in 2000. He joins an elite of nine riders who

have claimed back-to-back motocross world titles on Honda machinery, and an even more elite group of those who have graduated to a bigger class and still been victorious in consecutive years (those in bold).

from legend

to legend

Gajser became Honda’s second-youngest big-class World Champion, just behind Greg Albertyn who won the 250cc category in 1993. Although they were both 19, Albertyn was just 61 days younger.
