Tony Cairoli celebrates 10th Italian Motocross Title

Posted:

Red Bull KTM rider and MXGP World Champion Tony Cairoli secured his tenth senior Italian motocross championship over the weekend at Mantova.

The last significant weekend of action, preparation and tests before the start of the 2018 FIM Motocross World Championship in Argentina on March 5th saw Tony Cairoli wrap his sixth MX1/Elite/Supercampione national title by taking a double victory in the sand of Mantova in Italy. Cairoli had won motos in Sardinia, Sicily and then again at the former Grand Prix venue in central Italy to earn his first accolade of 2018 on the works KTM 450 SX-F.

"I had a great start in the first moto and a good rhythm to make a gap on Jeremey Van Horebeek and controlled that until the end on what was a difficult and sketchy track," Cairoli said. "Another good start in the second moto but Roman Febvre was close all the time and the track was getting deep with the ruts and I didn't want to take any risks. We tried to stay as safe as possible and made the win happen. I‰Ûªm really happy for this title and now looking ahead to Argentina.‰Û
