Positive Day for Pirelli at the Motocross Grand Prix of Citta Di Mantova

 

Jorge Prado Wins a Moto and Finishes Second in MXGP, While Tim Gajser Retains the Red Plate. Thomas Kjer Olsen Takes Second Consecutive MX2 Victory as Tom Vialle Extends Championship Point Lead

 

MANTOVA, Italy (October 1, 2020) – The ‘Tazio Nuvolari’ circuit hosted the Grand Prix of Città di Mantova, for the second race of the triple-header and 10th round of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship. To tackle the sandy and hard terrain of the Italian track, Pirelli riders again trusted the SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft front and SCORPION MX™ Soft rear tires in the various sizes available. The medium-soft mousses helped the riders deal with some big jump landings and many tough ruts. The Italian brand controls the top four positions in MXGP class championship standings and the top seven in MX2.

A couple of mistakes in the second moto prevented Jeremy Seewer from rising higher than fifth ahead of Gautier Paulin in sixth.
