Portugal MXGP mudder?

Annoyingly, after a couple weekends off, the Portuguese MXGP at Agueda looks like it could be ruined by the mud! While it is dry today, it gives rain both Saturday and Sunday, before being dry and sunny all next week!

And, as we saw in AMA supercross earlier in the year after Jett Lawerence dominated at A1, the mud interupted Lawrence momentum and gave the rest hope, so, is the mud the only thing that could stop Jorge Prado?…Even if it didn’t stop him winning a heat race in supercross!

Herlings, Gajser and Febvre will be hoping things go their way in the rain but this championship could take a huge swing this weekend for Prado too if the rest has problems and he gets the start if it is indeed  survival mode due to adverse track conditions – and it could be the same for MX2 with everyone chasing the in-form De Wolf.
