Overseas trip for the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team for the season opener of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, the Patagonian-Argentina Grand Prix, with the usual large crowd of Argentinian fans, who celebrated the results of Spaniard Jorge Prado .
On Saturday Prado (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing MXGP) with his MC 450F, after setting the third fastest time in the timed trials, dominated the qualifying heat right from the holeshot, earning ten points for the winner of Saturday's race, as per the new regulation, and he immediately placed the red plate on his bike.
On Sunday in race one Prado dominated once again scoring yet another holeshot at the start. Jorge then recorded the fastest lap of the race and won by more than four seconds. The second heat was much more complicated, and he had to fight for the entire duration of the race, but he was able to get the sixth position, which gave him the third position of the day, but above all, thanks to the victory in race one and of the qualifying heat, allowed him to celebrate the leadership of the championship after the first round of the season, at the top of the standings.
Jorge Prado: “I can only be happy, I'm at the top of the championship! After winning the qualifying moto yesterday and the first moto today, the second moto wasn't perfect, but I'm satisfied with my riding and I've been away from mistakes. I can't wait to go to Sardinia, on the sand of Riola Sardo: it's a track that I really like, and I hope to be able to increase the gap in the championship".
