Antonio Cairoli And Jorge Prodo Seal 2017 Italian MX Titles
Red Bull KTM factory riders Tony Cairoli and Jorge Prado were again in excellent pre-season form at the final round of the Internazionali D‰ÛªItalia Motocross at Ottobiano on Sunday.

Cairoli finished the day with a victory in the elite class after finishing second in the MX1 race behind Yamaha's Jeremy Van Horebeek while Prado held onto second in the MX2 race behind Michelle Cervellin as the two KTM riders won all three championships with their final round results.

In MX1 Cairoli got away well in the MX1 race to pick up the holeshot on the KTM 450 SX-F, but minutes later, teammate Jeffrey Herlings, who was racing in his first premiere class moto and was sixth at the start, tangled with Slovene Tim Gajser and both riders went down.

Herlings retired from the race while Cairoli hung onto the lead through the first two thirds before Belgian Jeremy van Horebeek overtook him. He settled for second place after demonstrating to the opposition that he is in very good pre-season shape.

In the MX2 race Jorge Prado, racing in his first full season with the factory team was once again very quick out of the gates as MX2 riders took to the track. He too led for most of his race before Italian Michele Cervellin seized the advantage and went to the front.

Prado‰Ûªs second place was good enough to wrap up the MX2 title and the result clearly boosted the 16-year-old Spaniard‰Ûªs confidence going into the final showdown in the elite class race.

‰ÛÏI got the holeshot today in the first race and I was able to make a big gap to the second rider but towards the end I got some arm pump and had to slow down a bit and finished second.‰Û
