Red Bull KTM’s Jorge Prado grabbed a great podium finish at the eighth round of the FIM MXGP World Championships in turkey this Sunday.
Finishing the first part of the Turkish double header with a two – three scorecard, the young spaniard landed himself with a second overall for the weekends racing.
“I think it was a great day, I got two good starts which makes things a lot easier,’ said Prado. “I led the most laps today so this gives me a confidence boost for Wednesday, the only thing is I was riding the same lines but when Jeffrey passed me in race one and Tim in the second one, I could see where I could improve.”
“Physically I am feeling ok and I am getting better, the bike is working good. It was a pity on the last lap to be passed by Jeffrey, but hopefully on Wednesday we get some good results.”
“There is still a lot of racing left, I need to take it race by race and stay within the top three, that is my goal, and get some race wins if I can. You don’t always get such a good field of riders because of injuries and other reasons but now everybody is ready to go racing so it is nice to race when everybody is fit.”
