Jorge Prado - Returning

Posted on February 14, 2020

Two months after the injury to his left leg femur, Jorge Prado is back on the saddle of his KTM 450 SX-F, on the Malagrotta track (Rome). About twenty laps in total, to resume the journey towards his first MXGP world championship.

It was a fantastic feeling," Prado said. "Which I have been waiting for a long time  and in the saddle I immediately found myself at ease. My KTM is exceptional and even without pushing I easily regained a great feeling, without no leg problems or anything. It's a new beginning for me and for all this I really want to thank KTM, Claudio De Carli and my team, who have always been close to me, Prof. Massimiliano Nannerini, who worked on me and followed me in the following period , and the preparer Giuseppe Chiodi for the great work we have done since the surgery. I think I can say that I got back on the bike quickly but I'm fine, I have the doctor's OK and I'm going to start training to prepare for the world championship. Obviously, it is still too early to understand when I can be ready to align myself with the starting gate ”.
