A two-week shakedown in Southern California training at RD Field is all it took for defending MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado to make the decision to try his hand at AMA Supercross, set to make a fascinating cameo appearance across the opening three rounds of the 2024 season.


Words: Press Release | Lead Image: GasGas


  • MXGP World Champion to make AMA Supercross Championship debut in 2024
  • Partnering with the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team
  • Planning to line up in 450SX Class at Anaheim 1, San Francisco and San Diego
  • That’s right, our Spanish sensation is in for Anaheim 1, San Francisco and San Diego this coming January, equipped with the GASGAS MC 450F in what will be his first-ever American Supercross start – straight into the premier 450SX ranks on debut. And we’re stoked to see it!

Fresh from clinching the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship in the MXGP category, which was a milestone achievement for both himself and GASGAS with the Davide De Carli-managed squad, Jorge had expressed his lifelong dream of sampling the sport of Supercross – and potentially making a 450SX start! – in the United States.

From there, accompanied by a blitz of media attention throughout his brief off-season excursion, the capabilities of the talented 22-year-old were evident from the outset while applying his craft within the tighter confines of training on a full-scale supercross track layout.

Together between Jorge, his regular Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team and the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team, it was decided that he will go on to contest the opening three rounds of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship in a bid to gain experience via a series of gate-drops and race mileage in the U.S. during what will still be the Grand Prix off-season.

Jorge Prado: “Since I started riding my dream has always been to one day race in the U.S., specifically to race Supercross. I have watched it my whole life on television and always thought it must be great to race under lights with a huge crowd and atmosphere! And more specifically, it must be great to race at an iconic stadium like Angel Stadium. I was lucky enough in 2015, while visiting and training in the U.S., to go to Anaheim 1 – it was a great experience and made me want to try it even more. So given I won the MXGP title this year and am totally healthy and looking for a new challenge, I thought it was the perfect time in my career to come and train in USA properly to prepare for a few Supercross races. I don’t want to waste another whole year wondering if I could or should, so I am here and I am going to try it out. I’m really looking forward to it and am lucky enough to have the full support of my Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team back home with Claudio and Davide de Carli, and the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team here in the USA behind me.”

Roger De Coster (Director of Motorsports, North America): “The main goal for Jorge in 2024 is to defend the world title he earned this past season, but of course we are excited to see what he can do on a Supercross track. We all know that he is very talented, given he’s already a multiple times Motocross World Champion, having won in MX2 and being the current MXGP Champion. However, we also know that Supercross at the highest level is extremely competitive and to race with the top here requires a lot of toughness besides talent, so this will be a huge challenge for him. We wish him the very best and are glad that with the support of TLD GASGAS we are able to support his wishes to try Supercross!”

Davide De Carli (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager): “Jorge fulfilled his dream in Europe to become MXGP World Champion this year and we are so proud of him. His desire now is to train in the U.S. and to try Supercross, because he hasn’t had the opportunity until now and from our side he completely deserves it. We, as a team, along with Pit Beirer and Robert Jonas have been completely open since day one with Jorge about giving him the opportunity to race Supercross and we will support him from Europe! We can’t wait to see him line up at A1 as it’s important for him to race those first three rounds to clarify in his mind where his racing future is, as he’s still really young and can try it out. It’s also good winter training for him before the start of the MXGP season, where his goal is to defend his number one plate in 2024. Good luck, Jorge!”

Following his scheduled three-round appearance in the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Jorge will return to Europe and prepare for his MXGP World Championship defence, which will open at the MXGP of Patagonia-Argentina on March 10, 2024.

ClubMX Update: Jeremy Martin back for Daytona, Reynolds has surgery and Schock ready to rock again

Check it out.

COOL BIKE DUDE!: The construction of this bike and the reason we built it was par for the course at ClubMX. We appreciate all the military does for this country and we will take any opportunity to thank them for their service. SKDA, Acerbis, FXR and Dubya all got onboard for this project and it came out perfect. It turned out so well that we loaded it on the truck to show off at Daytona this weekend. From the comments and support from active and retired military in attendance in Arlington, we thought it would be cool to share it with the Daytona crowd as well. If you did not get a chance to see or photograph it in person last weekend, swing by our pit area this weekend.

GOOD NEWS: JEREMY MARTIN #6: Jeremy will be returning to action this weekend in Daytona. He has been training all week and completed the session with practising his starts today. Travel day tomorrow and he will be ready to line up in Daytona – a track he really enjoys. It has been ample time since Detroit to get back in the swing of things and he feels that he can be competitive. We all realise that these things take time, but Jeremy is a competitor at the highest level so although we will temper our expectations, we will celebrate his return to action.

JETT REYNOLDS #99: Jett’s shoulder surgery went well, and he is on the mend. The doctor said everything should heal nicely and he can return to riding after his physical therapy shows the progress they are looking for. Of course you will not see him in Daytona and we will keep you updated on his inevitable return. Jett’s a good kid and continues to deserve a chance at success. He will get there.

COTY SCHOCK #69: Coty carries the banner for the race team on the east coast at this point. Can you believe he is tied for 3rd in overall points after two rounds? We believe it as he continues to use his maturity and consistency to ride near the front. We all believe that is what it will take to have overall success this season and Coty appears to be the man for the job. Daytona is a track he has circled on his calendar because it suits his “loose” style. With the amount of training and racing he has done with the team so far this season, he continues to gain comfort and confidence in himself and the team. This will lead to even better results as we continue to click off events headed to the half way point in the season. If you pay close attention to Coty on race day, you will see his starts are really good. This has put him in a great position to start the season and as he continues to gel with the Yamaha, it can only get better.

ClubMX as a training facility has welcomed Jason Anderson this week. Jason is a brilliant rider and recognizes the opportunity to train at our facility will give him an advantage on the east coast races. ClubMX offers a variety of soil compositions on three different Dirt Wurx built tracks to get ready for whatever race is on the schedule next.

FUTURES: As if Daytona was not crazy enough, we will have three riders in the Futures program on Saturday. Mark Fineis (105), Trevin Nelson (112) and Alex Fedortsov (600) will all represent us in this amazing program. Feld along with the AMA have created this platform for amateur riders to get a taste of the big leagues. The Futures riders will mix right into the Saturday night schedule to see first-hand what it is like to be a professional and race under the lights. On Friday at 3:00 pm, there is a one hour classroom session for all of the participants and I have been invited to make a presentation. If you truly want to see the future of the sport, stop by and get a glimpse for yourself.
