AXO IS WORLD CHAMPION!!!

August 26, 2013

Cairoli 7 like the Kings of Rome! This sentence was written by Tony’s crew from the box, where the joy exploded after Tony conquered his seventh World Title (the third in a row for AXO) at the end of the first moto of the GP of England, held at Matterley Basin. For his celebration Tony wear a special fluo yellow shirt designed by AXO for him, who loves this color.

Tony could be crowned World Champion with an eleventh spot in the first moto, but a true Champion like he is wanted to win in style. And that’s what he did: he started  second behind Desalle, studied the rival and put pressure on him increasing his pace until, with 14 minutes to go, he made his move on the Suzuki star and won the race.

Tony proved once again he is the best MX1 rider of the world and the title was the perfect conclusion of a perfect season, ridden always with full gas.

In the second moto Tony started again very fast, but an electrical problem to his KTM forced him to slow down his rhythm and later to the pits.

Tony Cairoli: “I’m so happy for the seventh title. It was great to clinch the chequered flag and to celebrate with my Team and my friends. I want to thank KTM, my team and my sponsors, for all their support. I wanted to win the heat and that’s what I did and I had a lot of fun, too! The track was difficult, so first I tried to find effective lines and then passed Desalle to the win! I’m sorry for the second moto, but it’s just racing. I had a good start and tried to open a gap, but then I had that problem. The bike turned off and I crashed. I restarted but then again I had the same problem, so I was forced to retire. The important  thing was done, anyway, and I am really so happy. We all have been working so hard and I’m happy we have conquered the title with one GP to go. Now I will focus on the next race and on the Motocross of Nations.”.

Thank you, Tony!!
