Jorge Prado and Andrea Adamo conquered the podium at the Grand Prix of Trentino

MXPG Trentino 2023, Pietramurata Rider:

The fourth round of the MXGP World Championship provided great action and some moments of drama throughout the weekend, and a new pair of winners as well in the form of Jorge Prado and Andrea Adamo.

Spaniard Jorge Prado finally put all the pieces together and earned his first overall of the season after coming close in the past three rounds. In the first race, the GasGas Factory rider put one of his usual holeshots to check out in order to win the race. In the second moto, he started at front leading a good portion of the race until being caught by Jeffrey Herlings and then Maime Renaux. However, his 1-3 was enough to top the podium on what was his 37 seven GP career win, now tie with Torsten Hallman in the all-time list wins.

Maxime Renaux rode on a solid 2-3 to take third overall, while Jeffrey Herlings climb into the third step of the podium thanks to his second moto victory. Before that, he was involved in a first-turn crash and had to make his way from the latest spots to eight.

Meanwhile, in the MX2 class history was made as Andrea Adamo took his main GP victory. The Italian wasn´t the best at the start of both motos, but he muscles his way to capture a pair of 2-2, enough for the overall.

The KTM Red Bull rider was followed by his teammate Liam Everts. The young from the clan Everts got his first MX2 podium being second overall with a 3-3. Casually, his father Stefan earn his first podium 32 years ago in this same track!

The podium was completed by Jago Geerts. The championship leader won the first race in big fashion going wire-to-wire, but an early crash in the second race buried them in the last position. He climbed to seventh, securing a third overall. Meanwhile, Simon Langenfelder was truly dominant during Saturday setting the fastest lap in Time Practice and then winning the RAM Qualifying Race, but a mediocre start in the first race of the day turn into an eight place. Despite their comeback and winning the second race, he ended outside the podium.
