IN MOTOCROSS DOUBLE VICTORY FOR PIRELLI AT THE GRAND PRIX OF EUROPE IN MANTOVA

Tim Gajser wins the MXGP class and consolidates his lead in the championship.
Jago Geerts owns MX2 while Tom Vialle remains at the top in the standings.

Mantova (Italy) October 4th, 2020- The Grand Prix of Europe, the eleventh round of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship, closed the series of three consecutive races hosted by the Mantova' 'Tazio Nuvolari' circuit over the last eight days. Once again, the SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft front and the SCORPION MX™ Soft rear tires were chosen by Pirelli riders to best face the sandy and hard surface of the Italian track. This time they combined their choice with a medium-hard mousse to deal with the degradation of the track during the event.

In the MXGP class overall victory belonged to reigning champion Tim Gajser who also marginally increased his advantage in the championship. Antonio Cairoli finished second after winning the second moto. There were good performances also by Jeremy Seewer who was fourth overall and is still third in the standings, and Mitchell Evans in fifth.

Jago Geertsand Tom Vialle closed the MX2 category with the same score but the Belgian earned the overall by winning race two. Vialle, second, kept the red plate. The winner of the last two rounds Thomas Kjer Olsen took the third step of the podium just in front of Ben Watson.

Next weekend the riders will tackle round twelve, the Grand Prix of Spain, which will be held at Intu Xanadù-Arroyomolinos and a brand new venue located thirty kilometres south of Madrid.
