Tony Cairoli joined the U.S KTM Factory team again for the tenth round of the 2022 AMA Pro Motocross Championship as he prepares to take on the upcoming FIM Motocross of Nations with Team Italy.

Unfortunately for the Nine-time world champion, a small crash on the opening lap of Moto 1 turned out to be a costly error as another rider clipped his wrist during the re-mount.

Racing through what turned out to be an injured wrist, Cairoli salvaged the rest of the moto, finishing 19th, and he went on to do the same in Moto 2 with a 15th-place result.

“The idea was to come here to make some more gate drops before the Motocross of Nations,” Cairoli explained. “I always like this track and after 15 years I want to come back. I felt a little bit uncomfortable immediately after the incident and I just wanted to keep riding because I come all the way here to train at least a little bit. In the second moto, I put some ice and I hoped that it would be a little better but unfortunately it wasn’t good. I couldn’t really push the way I wanted, I just rode 50% of the possibilities and I didn’t want to crash and risk it. We checked it and unfortunately, I have a little crack on my hand and I just need a couple of days of rest and let’s try to regroup and be ready for Motocross of Nations, which will be our next race and our biggest of the year.”

The Motocross legend will now take some time to rest and heal in order to be prepared for the next gate drop at the end of September.
