The Grand Prix of Garda Trentino Closes a Triumphant 2020 Motocross Season for Pirelli

 

Tim Gajser Takes his Fifth Overall Win of the Season in MXGP, While Ben Watson Captures his Second MX2 Victory of the Year

 

 

PIETRAMURATA, Italy (November 9, 2020) – The Grand Prix of Garda Trentino, Round 18 of the season and the third race of the triple header hosted by the Pietramurata circuit, closed the 2020 edition of the FIM Motocross World Championship. The front and rear SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft tires, paired with medium / soft mousse, proved to be the ideal selection for the hard soil which during the day was heavily marked by deep and tricky ruts. After securing both world championship crowns in the previous Grand Prix and having achieved the remarkable number of 74 world titles in motocross, Pirelli also confirmed its dominance in the final championship standings where it placed riders in the top three positions in the MXGP class and the top seven in MX2.

After defending his title in the previous GP, Tim Gajser won again in MXGP. The Slovenian was second in the first moto and dominated the second. Gautier Paulin and Jeremy Seewer finished the race equal on points, but the Frenchman took the third step of the podium thanks to the better position in the final moto. Seewer consoled himself by nudging Antonio Cairoli from second place in the championship standings. The nine-time champion took sixth in race one but was forced to retire in the last moto.
