MXPG Lombok - Indonesia 2023, Lombok Rider: Prado

The Grand Prix of Uddevalla saw GasGas Jorge Prado and Kawaski’s Kevin Hormgo on top of their respective Qualifying Race.

In the MXGP class, typical Jorge Prado style saw him put a huge holeshot and then pulled away from the rest of the pack. Behind him, Tim Gajser and Jeremy Seewer were on a solid 2nd and 3rd the entire race until the checkered flag.

All the attention was on Jeffrey Herlings and Romain Febvre battling for fourth place as they were back and forth a couple of times with Herlings taking advantage of the Frenchman.

Meanwhile, Clavin Vlaanderen came in sixth after keeping at bay Ruben Fernandez. Valentin Guillod, Alberto Forato and Benoit Paturel completed the top 10 spots. Maxime Renaux on his first race back since May, finished 12th.

In the MX2 Qualifying Race, Sacha Coenen started on top as he took the lead early on over Kevin Horgmo. The KTM Red Bull rider lead almost the entire race as he puts more than 4 seconds over Horgmo. Behind them, Liam Everts and Andrea Adamo were 3rd and 4th while Rick Elzinga was in 5th under the pressure of Simon Langenfelder.

The positions remained the same, but in the final stages, Horgmo got closer and made the move over Sacha Coenen who at the same time lost two more spots in the form of his teammates Liam Everts and Andrea Adamo. Everts pressured Horgmo until the final lap but wasn´t close enough to pass. At the same time, Sacha Coenen crashed hard and finished 11th. Adamo came in third while Simon Langenfelder and Rick Elzinga rounded the top 5.

Spaniards David Braceras and Oriol Oliver were super consistent as they finished sixth and seventh respectively. Local hero Isak Gifting came in eight over Emil Weckman and Camden McLellan in the top ten. Lucas Coenen missed the Qualifying Race as he suffered a big crash during the Time Practice session.
