Cairoli takes second Italain Motocross Championship round win
Red Bull KTM rider Tony Cairoli tasted victory for the second time in the 2018 pre-season period with a second round win at the Italaian Championships in his successful build-up to 2018 MXGP were he will defend his MX1 title.

Yamaha's Romain Febvre was second with Kawasaki's Alessandro Lupino rounding out the podium.

Cairoli was the undoubted main draw in the second round of the Italian contest, taking place in the MXGP world champion‰Ûªs home land of Sicily and at the hard-pack Noto circuit. Cairoli finished second in MX1 first in the ‰Û÷Supercampione‰Ûª race and continues to lead the competition with one round to run ‰ÛÒ at Mantova next weekend.

"I'm happy because it was a difficult race on a sketchy track," Cairoli explained. "[Romain] Febvre found a way to pass me through the backmarkers in the first moto and I couldn't get him back; it was hard to pass here. In the second moto we managed to attack the leaders after the first three or four laps and took the win; I was really happy with that and am already looking forward to next weekend.‰Û
