MXGP Podium Quotes

Jeffrey Herlings: “It was not an easy win. In the second race Romain (Febvre) was riding very strong and I had to fight for that one. Overall, I am very happy and pleased to win the Grand Prix. It was a perfect weekend and now I’m looking forward Germany”

Jorge Prado: “I was feeling great on Saturday but today I thought I could have won the first race but Jeffrey (Herlings) made a great charge. I had two great starts with two FOX Holeshots and I’m happy to keep the Red Plate. We are going to keep working to stay consistent and get some wins too and I’m really looking for the next races”

Romain Febvre: “It was a good operation for the weekend. In the second race I got a good start, it was muddy which is conditions that I love and I could pass some riders to get to the front. I had to concede the lead to Jeffrey (Herlings) which was a bit disappointed but I’m happy because my speed is good”
