San Diego marked another consistent night of Supercross racing for defending MXGP World Champion Prado, whose third-career AMA Supercross event yielded the capable young Spaniard a sixth-place finish in his Heat Race for a direct transfer into the Main Event.
Prado would follow that up with an 11th-place finish in the premier class Main Event, and the good news is that he and the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team have made the decision for him to remain in the U.S. and line up again at Anaheim 2 next Saturday.
Jorge Prado: “Today was another good experience. It was again not too easy after getting a bad start in the Main Event… I think the jump out of the gate was okay, but I got a lot of wheel spin, which sent me backward and meant I was one of the last to the first corner. My opening laps weren’t great, and then I got confused with the blue flags and let the riders who I was battling with by me, which was a pity. It is what it is, I can improve with my opening lap intensity, but I’m excited for three Main Events next weekend in the Triple Crown at A2 as I would like to at least be able to make one holeshot and enjoy that format of racing!”
