Antonio Cairoli Commits to Another Two Years with Red Bull KTM
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing have announced that reigning MXGP number one and nine times FIM Motocross World Champion Antonio Cairoli will remain part of the team for another two years committing to the team for both the 2019 and 2020 Grand Prix seasons.

The 32 year old Sicilian renewed his contract on Thursday in Rome in the presence of Team Manager Claudio De Carli and KTM Motorsports Director Pit Beirer. The agreement means that Cairoli ‰ÛÒ who gave the factory their first title in the premier class of the FIM series with the KTM 350 SX-F in 2010 and delivered the KTM 450 SX-F‰Ûªs first MXGP crown in 2017 ‰ÛÒ will register eleven years with the brand.

The 2018 contest begins next weekend with the first round of nineteen taking place at Neuquen for the Grand Prix of Patagonia Argentina. The South American fixture will mark the beginning of Cairoli‰Ûªs fifteenth term as a full-time GP rider and his ninth in Red Bull KTM colors.

In a remarkable career that boasts nine titles (seven in the premier class since 2009, six with SX-F technology), 213 GP appearances, 83 career wins and 145 podiums (with 163 moto victories) Cairoli is still the reference for the sport as he bids for a record-equaling tenth championship and his first viable ‰Û÷defense‰Ûª of the No.1 status with the KTM 450 SX-F.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really happy to announce this because we already made history in 2010 with the KTM 350 SX-F against the 450s and succeeded with that challenge. I feel a part of KTM because of that success and since then the company has grown a lot,‰Û
