Get the rider’s thoughts following the MXGP of Turkiye below.

Tim Gajser: I’m really really happy, it’s been such a long time since I step on top of the podium. All the weekend I felt great on the track and the riding was smooth and good. I got a bit of arm pump in the first race as I was maybe not riding enough relaxed but anyway in the second race I got a great start and made a little gap. I also made a mistake of my own and Renaux caught me but I kept my focus and regrouped to keep the lead. I’m very happy. I want to thank very much all the team who is working hard.”

Romain Febvre: “I’m happy for the weekend. I rode very well in the first race and felt comfortable but I felt quite sick the whole weekend so I’m very happy with 2nd overall and I took lot of points on Jorge (Prado) so it’s not finish yet and anything can happen. Hopefully in Maggiora I can race well because I love this track and have good memories there so let’s see what we can do!”

Maxime Renaux: “It’s great although I shouldn’t say that as I have mixed feelings knowing that in the second race, I came close to Tim (Gajser) after his crash but let him off the hook. I couldn’t make it happen for the GP win today because he rode strong today and could not match his speed. But I’m very happy with my first podium since my injury and it feels great as I start to feel myself again and we’ll try to build from there and get ready for the MX of Nations.

Liam Everts: I made a little mistake in Race 2 but I take it as a positive because there is still room for improvement and we can still go faster. I just want to keep working. About the title, it’s not really the goal coming in but we will see where we end up when it’s all done. I’m just trying to keep improving during these next two rounds and I want to thank all my team”

Kevin Horgmo: “We worked really hard during the whole season and in the beginning, it looked like it went against us but finally things have turned around even if I feel that it should have come sooner but it’s really nice to do it here. Unfortunately, my family is not here with me but I want to say Hi to them back home. Thanks to all the crew because we worked so hard for it.”

Jago Geerts: Overall I’m happy with the weekend. My shoulder is still not 100% and physically I am still struggling a little bit after my injury. I gave my all today and I was very tired by the end but I kept going and made it on the podium so I’m very happy with that.”
