Gajser shows his battle scars
Tim Gajser has admitted he rode in a lot of pain after he broke his collarbone and had surgery only 8 days before Riola – and he has the scar to prove it as the very tough defending world champ showed just how much he wants this 2021 title!
A proud team boss Giacomo Gariboldi said Tim was a warrior on social media: ” It was a tough day in Sardinia 🇮🇹 but our warrior @tiga243 could still make some points which will be fundamental to win the 2021 MXGP title, just after having a surgery 8 days ago to repair a broken collarbone! We’ll be back in two weeks in Germany 🇩🇪 stronger than ever!!!”
While Gajser said: ” It was a difficult race. Racing just 8 days after surgery was painful but i gave my best what was in my power to salvage some important points. Now we have 2 weeks to recover.”
It seems this world championship is about who can endure the most pain – these guys are made of granite.
