LAS VEGAS – After sealing his third MXGP title in Imola, Italy, last weekend, Team HRC’s Tim Gajser has signed up to compete in the Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev., on Oct. 19.

Having won races all around the globe this year, Gajser and Team HRC will head to America after the conclusion of the MXGP season and the Motocross of Nations in order to prepare for another tough challenge as they take on the supercross-style circuit under stadium lights for what will be three shorter-length races.

“I am really looking forward to racing the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas in October,” said Gajser. “It is a great event and I am excited to see how well I do on a supercross-style race track. I feel confident that I can we can go over to America and do a good job and I wish to thank Team HRC for working with me and helping me with this opportunity so that I’m as prepared as possible. Having raced the event in 2017, I know a little bit of what to expect but I am still very excited to try it again and feel like I will be able to enjoy the experience a lot more this time around.”

Gajser will be faced with some of the top competitors from the Monster Energy AMA Supercross tour, including reigning Supercross champion Cooper Webb, Eli Tomac, Ken Roczen, Blake Baggett, Marvin Musquin and more.
