Jorge Prado heading to America to Test Supercross: “I want to go there, I think it is important for me”

Jorge Prado

For the second time in his career, Jorge Prado would travel to America this weekend to test Supercross, but this time as a MXGP World Champion. The Spaniard never made a secret of his desire to compete in Supercross. Back in 2016, he had the chance to test some supercross during the USGP agenda.

Jorge Prado’s Factory GasGas contract expires at the end of the 2024 MXGP World Championship and the MXGP World Champion has always been linked to a move to the USA but it hasn’t happened so far. However, he is flying out to America this week to ride Supercross for two and a half weeks.

“I am going to the US on Wednesday. I will be riding for two and a half weeks, just Supercross, I will not even ride outdoors. I want to see what the feeling is like with the 450cc. I am a 450cc rider, world champion, 450cc rider, I cannot go back to the 250cc, it makes no sense. I want to go there, I think it is important for me because I’ve always had that Supercross thing at the back of my head. I just want to know if I am good, if I like it or not. If I do good and I like it I can maybe think about a future riding Supercross. If I think it’s no fun then yeah, I will stick to MXGP, I will have a clear mind for the rest of my career”
