Jorge Prado and Kay de Wolf take the overall wins in their respective classes at the MXGP of Riola Sardo, round 3 of the MXGP Motocross World Championship.

Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing MXGP racer Jorge Prado was crowned the new king of sand at Riola Sardo, with three wins on the spin, after he left his rivals trailing at the MXGP of Sardegna. The reigning champion won Saturday’s qualifying race, both motos on Sunday, and secured the Fox Holeshot Prize. 

Prado now leads the standings by 17 points over 2nd overall Tim Gajser.

Jorge Prado: “I’m in a good moment right now – I’m feeling great with the bike, and doing great work with the team. I feel good physically and have been training super hard. Everything is going great right now! I got two good starts in both motos and made no mistakes. I controlled the race and just tried to push until the other riders couldn’t hold on anymore. It was just about that – the track was so physical! I’m really happy to win here in the sand again, and hopefully we can continue the 1-1 pace next weekend. It has been a long time since I got an overall win in the sand – I’ve come close a few times, but after today I guess you can call me sandman again!”

Also, it was a third straight win for Neestan Husqvarna´s Kay de Wolf. The Dutch talent edged his teamamte in Race 2 in order to take the overall. de Wolf now leads by 29 points advanage over Simon Langenfelder.

Kay de Wolf: “In the first race, I didn’t really find a good flow—and credit to Lucas, he was pretty fast when he passed me. Big shout-out to him. In the second moto, I backed off a little bit because I knew Lucas was behind me and we could fight until the flag. He made a little mistake towards the end, which made my life easier—but I’m super happy with the results this weekend. Three in a row—it’s honestly amazing. Hopefully, we can keep this momentum going into the next weekend. We just keep aiming for the podiums—that’s the main goal. I can’t thank the team enough for their hard work, and now I’m looking forward to the next one!”
