2018 MXGP of La Comunitat Valenciana is one for the record books at the Redsand circuit in Spain’s Valencia region. Hosting its first ever MXGP event the vibrant soil of Redsand gave MXGP fans another weekend of epic racing!
Winning his first MXGP overall and red plate of the 2018 season was the veteran and defending FIM Motocross World Champion, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli. In the MX2 class it was another perfect weekend for the defending MX2 FIM Motocross World Champion, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Pauls Jonass.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli: “I am really happy about the weekend, we are still searching for the best bike set up but we are going the right way and we made some good changes. Everything went well here in Spain, it is my 84th GP win so it is very nice and the season is going really good and I am happy to fight with Jeffrey.”
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings: “At this track I definitely wanted to win but both starts I messed up. Hopefully we can improve and start with the guy next to me instead of trying to fight my way through the pack first before I get there, so I think once the starts are better we will be in a lot better position.”
