New Zealand's Josiah Natzke had his best result so far at the Spanish round of the European MX 125 championship.

He won the first race, came second in race 2 so finished with first equal points with his KTM team mate, Jorge Prado, but second place on the podium.

As he says, " Bring on the next round ! "

The day couldn’t have got off to a better start for the thousands of rowdy Spanish fans who came out to support their future star KTM Factory Juniors’ Jorge Prado who pulled the holeshot and led every lap for the race two victory and his first ever EMX125 round win. Meanwhile, hats off to his KTM Factory Juniors’ teammate, race one winner Josiah Natzke who was only fifth around turn one but charged hard to be in second before the end of lap two.

In race two, Natzke slowly chipped away at Prado’s lead which made the last lap super intense as the fans urged their countryman on. While the race was cut close, it was Prado who held on to win by less than a second over Natzke meaning the duo would tie for the win with the winner being determined by the final race result.

The day went from good to better for the KTM Factory Junior team with their third rider Conrad Mewse also putting in an impressive performance to finish third in race two.

Italian Davide Cislaghi sealed the deal on fourth place which was identical to the result he received in the first race yesterday. Two fourth positions landed Cislaghi on the podium which is an impressive improvement on his overall finishes from the previous two rounds.

Rounding out the top five in race two was the early season red plate holder Kemea Yamaha Yamalube’s Maxime Renaux.
