An unstoppable Jorge Prado dominates both heats in MX2

The spectacular 'Il Ciclamino' circuit in Pietramurata hosted the Grand Prix of Trentino for the fourth round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship. On the rough and rain-hit soil, which hardened through the race programme, Pirelli riders were able to count on the excellent performance of the SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft front and rear; the tyres allowed the Italian brand to toast overall victory in both classes.

There was a great battle in the MXGP class between Tim Gajser and Antonio Cairoli. After two exciting motos it was Gajser who emerged as the winner with a double success. Cairoli, who clocked the fastest lap in both races, tried valiantly to stop the Slovenian rider but had to settle for second place overall. The duo imposed such an impressive pace that none of their opponents managed to get near the dispute. There was a good performance also by Alessandro Lupinowho finished seventh at his home race.

Jorge Prado continues to dominate MX2. The reigning champion made two holeshots, led every lap and registered the quickest lap-time. Young teammate Tom Vialle, who in his debut season in the world championship continues to amaze with excellent results, climbed the podium for the second time in four races. Thomas Kjer Olsen was fifth in Pietramurata, ahead of Henri Jacobi, and remains in the lead in the championship with a twenty point advantage over Prado.

In five weeks the riders will again return to Italy to attempt the Grand Prix of Lombardia at the 'Tazio Nuvolari' circuit in Mantova.
