MXGP 2022 - Matterley Basin - Round 01
MXGP of Great Britain: this weekend took the first Grand Prix of the 2022 Motocross World Championship in Matterley Basin.
Jorge Prado takes his first MXGP moto win in new GASGAS colors.
Jorge Prado: "Today was a great day! It is perfect to start the season on the podium. I felt a bit rusty in the first moto and did not really have a good rhythm in the beginning. The last two laps were good, so I knew that the second moto would be a bit better. I felt more relaxed. The start was important here, because the sun was very low. I was running a good pace after the start – I knew I had a chance and could not throw it away. I pushed as hard as possible and won the moto, so I am very happy. I feel good."
Thomas Kjer Olsen: "A very positive start to the MXGP season start for me and my team. I am glad that we have returned to the two-day format, so I was able to improve a bit from Saturday to Sunday and get two good results. I'm already looking forward to the next race in Mantova."
