The senior titles at the Italian International MX Championship were safe in Orange hands when the three-round series concluded on Sunday at the northern Italian circuit of Arco di Trento with Tony Cairoli picking up both the MX1 and the Elite silverware.

MX 1 teammate Ken De Dycker finished second in the MX1 championship followed by Honda's Evgeny Bobryshev in thid while in the Elite class, it was Yamaha's Steven Frossard who claimed the runner up spot in the Championship to Cairoli with De Dycker in third.

Cairoli started the day at the final round of the Italain Championship in style with a great win in the 17-lap MX1 race, winning from Frenchman Steven Frossard by almost four seconds. Teammate De Dycker finished fourth giving both riders enough accrued points in the series to be 1-2 in the championship.

Cairoli came away more than satisfied and said the series had been very good for him except for two small incidents. In Rd. 2 in Malagrotta he got a stone wedged in his rear brake and on Sunday there was the incident with the back marker.

“I tried to pass him but just as I was going past he move out and I hit his back wheel with the gear shift." Cairoli explained. "I tried to keep going but in the end I had to stop.

"I knew it was okay for the championship. It is also a long time since I rode on this type of gravel surface but lap-by-lap I got used to it. It was good to race here because this is a venue where we will have a GP this season.”

Ken De Dycker had been ill this week and was not at the top of his game but he said he feels very confident ahead of the GP season.

“It was nice to have three rounds on completely different surfaces and I think we are ready for the first GP. This year I have had the best training and I feel stronger and fitter than ever before, especially with the new bike.” De Dycker stated.

In the final MX2 race of the year it was Jeffery Herlings who celebrated his return to the international circuit with a dominant victory, crossing the line 28 seconds ahead of eventual title winner Christophe Charlier of France and and Jordi Tixier.

Herlings then continued his charge in the Elite race facing off against teammate Cairoli and the rest of the top MX1 and MX2 riders, with Herlings going on to win the Elite after Cairoli was forced from the race.

“I haven’t been so happy with my pre-season preparations but today was great and I know I’m always there when the gate drops." Jeffrey Herlings stated. "I’m glad to have won the MX2 race by almost half a minute and also to win the Elite race even though it was because Tony had some bad luck.

"Now it’s two weeks of hard training before the first GP.”

While Herlings was happy with how the day played out, the MX2 championship glory went to French rider Charlier who finished the championship on 320 points, 112 points ahead of second placed Kullas Harri. Stefan Kjer Olsen rounded out the MX2 podium.

“It was tough for me today but I’m really happy that we could get the job done,” said Charlier. “We are in pretty good form and it’s been a decent few weeks here in Italy with the tests, races and stuff like the photoshoot.

"We’re set for Qatar now and it’ll be great to start the World Championship," he concluded.

All riders and teams will now prepare for the opening races of the 2013 World Championship season to be held on March 1, for the first time in Qatar and under lights.
