THE CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS
Thursday, November 5, 2020
The very challenging 2020 season has brought us two Twin Air supported Champions in the name of Tim Gajser and Tom Vialle.
For Gajser, the 2020 season came with ups and downs. The Slovenian looked strong in the first two rounds in Matterley Basin and Valkenswaard, where he finished second both times. But then we saw him struggle in Latvia, as the season resumed, before he turned things around for the MXGP of Lombardia where he finally got his hands on the red plate. He then got his first overall victory two rounds later during the MXGP of Europe in Mantova, before following that up with a string of podiums and race wins. Today, the Slovenian turned the red plate gold, as he claimed his fourth world title with a fourth overall Grand Prix victory of the season, along with a 14th heat win in race two. The stats for Gajser are pretty impressive in 2020, he has 13 podiums to his name, has led a total of 205 laps along with 8 pole positions this season, more than any other rider in the category.
The World Title marked the first of potentially many championships on the all new Honda CRF 450 R 2021. The factory race bike is fitted with the best possible parts including Twin Air filters that are available to everyone! Check out our application page to find all our products available!
Meanwhile in MX2, Vialle had a close battle with Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jago Geerts all season long. Geerts was the early championship leader, though by the second round Vialle was able to take over the spot and retain that position until today, as he swapped the red plate for a gold one. He confirmed his first world title with a confident race win, which saw him take the Fox Holeshot from the outside. This was his 13th heat win of the season and while the Frenchman missed out on a spot on the podium, the only thing that mattered was the championship.
While Vialle missed out on a podium finish today, the Frenchman still claimed his maiden world title in incredible fashion, as he took race 1 Fox Holeshot today from the outside gate, and then led every lap of the opening race, to cross the line with his 13th race win but this time officially as world champion.
Yet another dominant performance from the KTM MX2 division, the ninth world title in the last ten years aboard the KTM 250 SX-F 2021. The factory race bike is fitted with the best of the best, including the Twin Air Powerflow Kit.
