Change of team for Prado?
Jorge Prado will wear Answer gear in 2018 not Alpinestars, the gear normally associated with the Red Bull KTM MX2 team.
Prado has long been rumoured to be moving across to the De Carli awning where he will be teammates with Cairoli who wears the Answer racing clothing.
It is believed Prado wants to have a serious charge at the MX2 world title and with the defending champion, Pauls Jonass, under the same awning, it wouldn’t be ideal.
Now, just like Cairoli and Herlings, it seems the battle-lines have been drawn with two riders for the same team competing under different awnings.
Jonass and Prado had a couple of run-ins this season and it will be interesting to watch the dynamic with both going for the title in 2018. Pit Beirer might be a busy man this season between both teams!
