I think Husky made the right decision to keep Anstie and Paulin over Nagl as they were both consistently getting better results. But Nagl on a very good day can challenge for wins and he definitely deserves to stay in MXGP, cool that TM is moving into the top class and they have a very good rider to help develop the bike and get the best results out of it.

Great stuff.

Shocking. Nice grab by TM, though. Always been a fan of the tricked out boutique bikes.

Wow, this move says a lot for TM and their obvious intent to be a known player. Especially interesting strategy/push for brand relevancy during a time when the Suzuki's of the world are pulling out. I wonder how closely TM has modeled their growth plan around KTM's rise to the top of the moto food chain..

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

I don't think TM wants to be the next ktm, but a larger player for sure.

Should be interesting to see how nagl does

Thanks for the news. Good for both of them! I like it.

Thats some good new for Nagl. Does he have to find a way to the races himself, or is everything going to be paid for and hes going to be making some money? I remember hearing that if he took the TM deal that he was going to have to pay his travel costs and so on.

Very cool, will be interesting to see how it pans out.

I wish they would make a push too, but TM has for many years made about 2000 motorcycles annually, in good and bad times. I think they are satisfied with that, even though I really don't know how they make any $$$. Probably the karting side is the bigger income source for TM.

From what I understand the management doesn't really care about how many bikes they sell. They just wanna make the best bikes out there. I think having Nagl on board can make a huge push for them. Let's hope it works out. Would be cool to see a TM up front in mxgp. TM has always had great engines and with Nagl beeing a start specialist I can see alot of lightblue out of turn 1 next year

Good to see TM back in the main class. A few years ago Leok and Guarneri did pretty well with that bike, and longer ago, Pyrhonen. Is Bernardini still in for MX2?

Gole jumped ship as soon as he could to get on a Yamaha for 2018

Where did you get this information that Gole "jumped ship as soon as"? What I've heard is that he really liked the bike. Also I've heard no rumors or information that Gole is riding blue.

According to a swedish moto site he has been rumored to sign with JK racing Yamaha from italy, but they didn't want to give anything away so they didn't confirm it, so i guess i was wrong as for now until his deal is done

Good move by TM. I cant wait to see what he can do on that bike.

|

11/3/2017 6:36 AM

Moneywise probably not the best move for Max, but what are you gonna do if there are no better options?
Hope it helps him to get his career back on track, he has a few more years in him.

Good move for TM, Nagl can be as fast as anyone when he's comfortable on a bike and with a team (see 2015)

Gole signed a week ago for iFly JK Racing. Ivo Monticelli will race for this team in MXGP and Tim Edberg in EMX250.

Max Nagl's season 2018 is secured! Weilheimer will be competing in the MXGP World Championship as TM works driver next season.

"Finally I can get back to the season preparation and my training program," Nagl told SPEEDWEEK.com. "The last few weeks have been really tough. After the unexpected end of the Husqvarna engagement, Matterley Basin's scaphoid fracture in the last race including surgery was added. Now I finally see light at the end of the tunnel. The contract is signed, the hand is making good progress. It is progressing overall. »

Nags concluded a one-year contract with TM for extension.

"In the meantime, I'm really happy about it," says Nagl. "I feel very well in this family team."

Husqvarna leaves Nagl without resentment. "I had a good time there. We developed the material further and I was Husqvarna's title candidate. Of course, I also had a lot of bad luck during this time, but I can not blame anyone. Antii [Pyrhönen] also knew that the decision became a problem for me so late in the season. That's why you gave me a test approval before the contract ended. In retrospect, that was very important for the decision. After all, it's not just about the 'job' as such, but ultimately I have to get by on a motorbike. »

The test work on the TM went well for Nagl. "The whole team is motivated right down to the tips of their hair. They want to face the competition and work very hard for it. The first test was really enjoyable. The bike has a lot of power, which suits my driving style. If something needs to be changed, it will be implemented very quickly. "

The negotiations were burdened from the outset by budget problems. It was said that Nagl could drive, but without Gage. "Here, too, the TM team has worked hard and negotiated with their sponsors to be able to lace the package. I can live with the regulation we have now. There is a kind of bonus system. If my services are right, my fee is also right. That's okay for me. »

Max Nagl will contest the entire 2018 season, including all overseas races.

Good for Max, and for TM .

As for Gole, he struggled on the TM because he was contracted to Husky for his home championship, and swapping back and forth did him no good.

Whatever he does, i hope they both have a decent season

Nice

This should go well for the team.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

I am happy for the people of the TM team that goes to the races, their dedication and interest is maximum, hopefully with Max they get the best results because they deserve it.
I went to congratulate them once in a GP in Spain where Leok got a great result in a season that was being difficult, how happy and proud they were!

Didn’t Bengtson ride for that same team this year? Isn’t he staying around? He had some decent results.

Anyway seems like the Swedes are popular on that team.

Looking pretty good. I've always liked the TM look.
I really hope it works out for him.
