The Team HRC rider from Slovenia competed there as a youngster on a 65cc bike, but decided to buy this facility this year in order to step-up his training regime.
In 2021, the reigning FIM World MXGP Champion will attempt to win his fifth world motocross title.
The Team HRC rider has won the last two MXGP championships in a row and he’s confident that the Honda CRF450RW is once again the machine to propel him to glory.
He signed a multi-year extension to his contract at the end of last year.
Riding alongside Gasjer will be Australian rider Mitch Evans, who made the step-up to the MXGP class in 2020 and proved he belongs there after a number of good performances in his rookie campaign.
Currently the season is scheduled to begin at the hilly Orlyonok track in Russia on June 12-13.
Like last year, there is a one-day format for the MXGP class, with all the action taking place on the Sunday, something which both riders took time to adapt to, however once they got into their rhythm, Gajser especially was able to qualify with first gate pick eight times in 2020.
