Jeffrey wins the GP with a 1-1 at Afyon and takes his first victory of 2019 in only his third MXGP appearance of the year.
Jeffrey Herlings: “Back winning! I’ve won a GP every year since 2010 and that’s ten seasons now for KTM and 85 together. It has been a bumpy ride this year but I want to thank all the Red Bull KTM crew and all my sponsors. It has been a rollercoaster with a lot of downs but at least we are trying to finish the year on a high note. I wanted to win here with a 1-1 and found the perfect place to pass Glenn and make it happen. Our goal is to be on the podium again for the last round.”
Jorge Prado wins his fifteenth GP (from sixteen) and thirteenth 1-1 double from that haul.
Jorge Prado: “Two enjoyable races today and they were made way-easier thanks to the good starts. I didn't have to deal with any roost and could ride my own speed. I did well today; I was not using much energy. It felt like a perfect weekend. I was really motivated to go 1-1 after missing out on the overall in Sweden.”
