Jorge Prado and Kay de Wolf on winning the MXGP of Argentina 2024

Jorge Prado en el MXGPDe Argentian

The season opener for the 2024 FIM World Motocross Championship provided a feast for the senses on all fronts at the MXGP Patagonia-Argentina. Defending World Champion Jorge Prado took a perfect storm of 1st and 2nd in two motos to secure the top step in MXGP. While it was an MX2-only affair for the Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing Team in Argentina – due to MXGP rider Mattia Guadagnini having to sit out round one due to injuries sustained during pre-season training – Kay de Wolf put an amazing effort en route to the overall win.

Jorge Prado: I am super happy how everything is going right now. Honestly this weekend has gone so well – I feel good about the bike, and we made some key improvements from last year. I feel like a better rider now than I ever have before – and I’m super happy to leave Argentina with the red plate and the win. Starting the season on the right foot is fantastic. I want to say a huge thankyou to all my team at RedBull GASGAS Factory Racing, as well as everyone beyond me – my trainer, my family – everyone that is putting work into this! Let’s keep rolling and gain more results like this!”

Kay de Wolf: “It’s really nice to have the red plate on my bike at this stage of the season – even though it maybe doesn’t mean much, with so many races to go with 19 rounds, but I’m really happy with that. I was struggling in the beginning of the weekend, but I kept improving – which is something that we focused on during winter training; doing long motos and then going for a sprint in the end. Overall it was a positive weekend, and all the hard work paid off. Winning a GP is amazing of course and now I’m looking forward to heading to Spain now and battling for more wins.”
