Tony Cairoli has taken his seventieth GP win in Uddevalla, which was the twelfth round of the MXGP World Championship. The AXO took two fantastic hole-shots, to then build a gap on rivals coming from behind and to win both races apparently with no difficulties. Cairoli leaves Sweden  with 45 points ahead of the closest rival in the Championship, Jeremy Van Horebeek (Yamaha).

Tony Cairoli: “I'm very happy with how it went today, because with all the problems that I have suffered in the past days it was not easy and it’s long time that I've struggled to find the right feeling. Even this week I was not in good physical condition, my back was sore yesterday and after the qualifying race, I was not very confident; but today I was able to ride well and avoid mistakes, I am very pleased to see that the work we have done in the last few weeks is paying off, now we must continue in this direction. For sure the seventieth victory it’s a fantastic achievement, but I look forward for the next goal.”

Top ten results also for Ken De Dycker (tenth in the MXGP) and for Josè Butron (eighth in the MX2).
