Jorge Prado returns to action with another triplet in Italy

The Galician faces three new appointments in eight days in Faenza after getting his first podium in the premier category in the last appointment in Latvia.


Faenza is known in the motor world for being the home of one of the F1 teams, Alpha Tauri, but in the next few days there will only be spoken the language of the two wheels, those of Motocross. The MXGP World Championship lands in the Italian town to continue the competition in the same way that it resumed in Latvia at the beginning of August, with a triplet of races in eight days: on Sunday 6th the Italian GP will be raced; on Wednesday 9, the GP of the City of Faenza; and Sunday the 13th, that of Emilia-Romagna.

The setting is not unknown for the jumping and skidding championship as he raced there for the first time in 1979, but has not done it again since 2012. So it will be a celebrated comeback, especially for one of the biggest stars of the World Cup, Tony Cairoli, who will race at home up to nine times (there will be two more triplets in Italy later). Although, so far, the main actor of the queen class is not the Italian, but his partner in KTM, the Dutch Jeffrey Herlings, outstanding leader of the World Championship.

Tim Gasjer takes 46 points (213 to 167), a fight that at the moment catches Jorge Prado away. Of course, the Galician faces the event after achieving his best result of the year in the third round of Latvia with his first podium in MXGP: he was third in the Kegums GP (with a third and fourth place in the two races). There are 120 points that place him ninth in the standings, but after verifying how well he recovered from his collarbone injury, Prado will surely continue to leave good news.
