Prado, on the hunt for his first victory at Loket

The man from Lugo, who already touched the victory with a third place in Oss, will look for the 'gold' that he already tasted two seasons ago on the same stage when he was racing in MX2.


The Motocross World Championship does not give rise to a truce. Without having digested the hangover left by the Dutch GP, the action will return this weekend in the Czech town of Loket to celebrate the fifth of the 19 grands prix that are fixed on the calendar. All eyes will be on the noble part of the table, where up to three drivers are even on points in the hunt for HRC standout leader Tim Gajser.

In fifth position overall, but nothing off the hook, a Jorge Prado arrives who meets one of his favorite settings. And it is that Loket is one of the many territories that the Lugo conquered in his brilliant season in MX2. One more reason to trust in a good performance by the KTM rider, who arrives at the sweet spot after brushing off victory in Oss with a great third place, who improved the sixth he signed in the first batch.

To achieve his first victory in the premier class, Prado will have to face the big shots of the World Cup. A priori, the rival to beat will be Gajser, but you cannot take your eyes off Kawasaki's Frenchman, Romain Febvre, who arrives eager to repeat the triumph he achieved in 2019, the last precedent of this grand prize. The one who will not be there will be the other KTM Jeffrey Herlings, who has not had time to recover from the spectacular accident that fractured his shoulder blade at Oss before achieving his heroic victory.

For the first time this season, Prado will not be the only Spanish representative in MXGP. The Galician will be accompanied by José Butrón, also in KTM. The award-winning Chiclana rider makes his debut this weekend this season, and will try to set the bar in style in the Czech Republic.So goes the World Cup
