Ah yes, they do things a bit differently in the GPs. For example, this HRC hospitality setup.

No matter which side of the pond you're on, there's always cleaning work to be done.

The awnings the teams use on the GP side are also quite different than what we're used to seeing.

No doubt on this one.

How clean is the setup in the Ice One Rockstar Husqvarna rig?

Let's take a peek at some of the details on Thomas Kjer Olsen's bike.

Lots of available grip.

Courtney Duncan swept both motos in the Women's class at Loket.

Such a dialed-looking setup for Courtney.

How about Airoh's super-deluxe helmet refresh station?

Jago Geerts getting some pre-race physio.

Maxime Renaux is rocking the red plate as the MX2 points leader.

Maxime finished second in MX2 at Loket.

Pit lane life. Ivo Monticelli in for a quick pit stop.

Some of the guys opt for a fresh rear tire to start the race. For Tim Gajser? Burnout on the edge of the gate and run it. There are times (like when the gate is damp) that he feels like it's an advantage to not be running a fresh tire.

Jago Geerts getting some last-minute instructions. He nabbed sixth overall in MX2.

Even with a good tire changer, changing mousse setups requires some muscle.

Jed Beaton in the pits...

...and on the track. The speedy Aussie was fourth overall at Loket.
