MXGP of Emilia Romagna (Italy) number 3: This weekend took eighth Grand Prix of the 2020 Motocross World Championship at Faenza in Italy.
With 44 points Cairoli achieved his 91st GP win, his 169th podium finish and his second victory of 2020.
Tony Cairoli: “I’m really happy to win again, especially because I was struggling a lot with the knee in the morning. 18th in Timed Practice was not good for confidence but I know I can defend a good rhythm in the race and I had the fitness to push. It’s great to win and have the red plate. Of course, we miss Jeffrey. We wish him a speedy recovery.”
Jorge Prado: “I’m feeling quite good with the bike at the moment and speed-wise it’s positive. I’m happy I could get my first moto win today. I used a lot of energy and I gave my maximum to get that win and I had an empty tank for the second moto because I was sick in bed yesterday. I’m happy I can be up here on the podium. I think I did a very good result in the circumstances.”
Vialle bagged his fourth win and seventh podium of 2020 and keeps his 21 point advantage at the top of the championship.
Tom Vialle: “After finding the first moto a bit difficult I was feeling really good in second moto. My lines were coming easily, so I was pushing and everything was flowing. I’m really happy to win again: twice in a row is fantastic. It was a really good weekend.”
Next Grand Prix 26 & 27 of September in Mantova.
