The new TC222 gear debuts on the podium at Maggiora

June 17, 2013

More than 30.000 enthusiastic fans have witnessed the debut of the brand new AXO TC222 gear, worn by the 6 times World Champion for the first time at the historical track of Maggiora.

After the great success of the first edition of the TC222 gear, Tony was pleased to cooperate again with AXO style centre to design and develop his new gear, whose main feature is a minimal look, a must of the newest trends, together with top quality and high performing fabrics. This is a limited edition, which you will find on our web site and in the best shops starting from next July.

But let’s talk about the races: Tony Cairoli had his fans all by his side on the beautiful Italian track, but in the first outing he crashed and twisted the ligaments of his left knee and could only finish fourth. In Race 2, after riding carefully in the first stages, Tony had a thrilling battle with Paulin for the win, but in the end had to give up and to be content of the third step of the podium.

Better than him did his team mate Ken De Dycker, who, courtesy of a 2-3 results, stepped on the second step of the podium, giving AXO the runner up spot of the GP of Italy.

Good performances for Davide Guarneri, too, who ended the week end with an eighth spot overall, with a special vintage shirt which reminded to the epic Motocross of Nations race, held in Maggiora in 1986.

Let’s give the word to our heroes:

Ken De Dycker: “I’m happy to be on the podium again, which means I’m feeling good with the bike. Today my starts were good and everything went well, but I think I could have done even better with a more technical and selective track!”.

Tony Cairoli: “It’s a shame I have crashed in the first moto, twisting my knee, the same I had already injured back in 2008. In the second moto it went better, I had some pain in the knee in the beginning, but then I started to come back and I tried to catch Paulin, because that was what my fans wanted me to do! I was on his tail but couldn’t pass him… “.

Davide Guarneri: “A good week end: in Race 1 I took a good start, but then had a contact with Searle on the second lap and we both crashed, as a result of which I lost a lot of spots and had to come back. In the end I finished ninth. In the second moto I was riding eighth for a long time, but had to slow down a little bit because I was feeling tired: I had spent a lot of energies in coming back in the first moto, but then I made to eighth again as the chequered flag was waved. It was nice to have my fans there to support me and I want to dedicate to them my good performance!”.
