With his sights set on two top five results in Sunday's MX1 GP of Portugal, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Max Nagl finished in sixth place in Saturday's qualifying.
"This was a good day for me," the German rider said. "I was quite fast in all sessions and I like the track a lot." Nagl got off to a good start and was riding comfortably with the front runners. He was riding in fifth place behind Italian Antonio Cairoli and although was passed by Tanel Leok in the closing stages, was satisfied with his day's ride.
