The 2019 MXGP of Portugal provided another round of nail-biting MXGP and MX2 racing with Team HRC’s Tim Gajser and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jorge Prado looking to extend their respective leads at the circuit of Agueda.
Agueda’s clay soil is rich with color but the weekend’s racing was even more vibrant as thousands of fans filled the trackside hills to take in the action. Graced with blue skies and sunshine the track was prepped to perfection overnight but the riders of MXGP and MX2 still had their hands full as it developed into a challenging circuit as the day progressed.

“It was really great to come away with two wins and the overall here in Portugal. I put last weekend behind me and I knew that if I focused and rode like I know how to ride, I could do well at this Agueda track. Still, to get both moto victories is a great confidence booster and backs up my win in Trentino very nicely. I now have the fastest laps in the last four motos so my speed is good and I know I am feeling strong too. These back to back races are tough but I head to France really happy with my riding and confident that the bike and I are working well together. A big thanks to the team for working so hard to help make this happen, and let’s keep up the effort!” Tim Gajser
