Gajser prepares for round eight.

Honda HRC confirmed today that Tim Gajser, who had this horrific crash at the Grand Prix of Latvia, will compete at the Grand Prix of Germany this weekend. Gajser sustained no broken bones in the crash two weeks ago, but was extremely sore in the days that followed the event.

"I am feeling very lucky that I wasn't more injured from the crash I had in Latvia," Gajser stated in a press release. "It was frustrating but that is the way motocross goes sometimes. I am still sore but I am going to give it my best in Germany. Last year the track was very tough in Teutschenthal but I had a good result here and finished second overall so I am looking forward to riding there and hopefully getting a podium finish again."

Roger Harvey, the HRC General Manager, echoed those thoughts. "Following Tim's crash in Latvia, he is still very sore but he is hungry to get back on the bike and we are pleased he is able to race in Germany," he said.

Tim Gajser currently sits second in the MXGP series standings and faces a seventeen-point deficit to the series leader, Antonio Cairoli.
