Cairoli and Prado win in Netherlands

Great weekend for our Airohriders in Valkenswaard, winning in both MXGP and MX2

With the third consecutive victory achieved in Valkenswaard, Antonio Cairoli conquers important points in order to aim for the conquest of his tenth world title. Along the classic sandy track located near Eindhoven, Tony has excelled in all the available tests.

Tony Cairoli“A very nice weekend. I didn’t really feel great all week. On hard-pack I was OK but this small shoulder problem in the sand made things difficult. Anyway, looking at the bigger picture we took two wins and you cannot get more than fifty points so it was a great weekend. Also no crashes, which was important on this track where we saw a lot of people going down. It will be a busy week now with my home GP but I hope to see a lot of public at Arco and KTM again on top of the podium.”

In MX2 ein plein by Jorge Prado, he replicated Cairoli's perfect weekend, earning the best time in the timed, victory in the qualifying race and first place in both races of the GP. On the podium with him also Jago Geerts

Jorge Prado“It was a great weekend. Four days ago I could not think about riding. I had too much pain and I didn't really know how my body was reacting. I had to rest these weeks and take it easy. I wasn’t happy at all to miss Matterley Basin. I don't think we really expected these results here this weekend: the goal had been just to ride and get some points! On Saturday I had some issues and didn't feel comfortable but today I woke up and I felt better. So to win both motos was great and to get some points back. I took some painkillers today just to be safe but everything that we did for this weekend turned out well. It is a long championship and my rivals are riding well. We just need to keep going, keep focussed, limit the mistakes and keep trying to improve.”
