Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing just finished another successful round of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, as Jorge Prado placed his MC 450F on the Grand Prix podium and kept his tight grip on the red plate that represents the fact that he is the championship leader.

  • Prado leaps onto Grand Prix of Portugal podium.
  • Red plate remains attached to Prado's MC 450F.
  • Simon Langenfelder continues his consistent run. 
Prado continued his fine run of form at the Grand Prix of Portugal, which is not far from his home, as he ripped to a comfortable victory in the first moto. Unfortunately, the second moto was a little trickier as a mediocre start halted his progress somewhat. '61' was classified in sixth place in that, which was enough for third overall on the day. Most importantly, his series lead is sat at seventeen points.
Jorge Prado: "Overall, I am quite happy with my day. I am in a good position in the championship and riding well. I feel like I can replicate what I did in moto one, so that is good. I got pushed wide at the start of the second moto, so I lost some positions early on. I charged hard at the end of the race and almost made progress. I am confident. It is my home Grand Prix next, so I am excited."
Piloting the second MC 450F in the top ten, Mattia Guadagnini continued to cement himself as a clear frontrunner in the premier division. '101' battled with the best in the world en route to 6-8 scores in the two motos – a consistent scorecard that left him eighth in the overall classification. Guadagnini is now ninth in the championship standings and hungry to edge closer to a maiden podium.
Simon Langenfelder had a consistent stint in Portugal, yet it was one that he would have undoubtedly wanted to extract more from. '516' raced to fifth in moto one, after ending lap one in eighth, then put himself in podium contention in moto two. Eventually, he crossed the finish line in fourth and that left him in fifth in the overall classification. Fifth is also where he sits in the championship standings.
Mattia Guadagnini: "It was a good weekend and I am pretty happy. The result could be better though. I just did not have the rhythm early in the races, but the riding was good. I was close to the top five in moto one – that was good. The second race was even better, because I pushed the whole moto. It was a positive day."
Simon Langenfelder: "My weekend was a little up and down. I finished in fifth in the first moto, then I took the holeshot in the second race. I was staying with the leader and having fun, but I could not hold onto second place. That was a shame, but we will reset for the next round. Hopefully I have a better feeling there."
A special Grand Prix awaits Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing now, as the squad will venture into Spain for Jorge Prado's home event. Thousands of fans are expected to flock to the relatively new circuit to see the red plate attached to his MC 450F.
