Cairoli in action

Pietramurata’s "Il Ciclamino" circuit hosted the fourth round of the 2015 FIM Motocross World Championship, which marked the return to Europe after the flyaways of Qatar, Thailand and Mexico. The spectacular track - perfectly nestled between the steep mountain walls of the dolomites in upper Garda (Trentino) - features hard and stony ground that offers very little grip. On this stage Pirelli debuted a new front prototype tyre that was used successfully in sizes 80/100-21 for both races by the MXGP Grand Prix winner Max Nagl. The new tyre performed slightly better on this occasion than the SCORPION™ MX32™ however due to Tony Cairoli finishing second and Clement Desalle third the model also demonstrated its excellent consistency and capability. On the rear of the Red Bull KTM Cairoli used a SCORPION™ MX32™ with dimensions of 110/90-19 while the other top riders opted for the 120/90-19; the most popular choice for this type of track. Pirelli also dominated the MX2 class that was won by Tim Gajser, for the HRC rider’s the very first Grand Prix triumph. The young Slovenian was equipped with SCORPION™ MX32™ 80/100-21 front and 110/90-19 on the rear. The same choice of tyres was selected by runner-up Jeffrey Herlings who notched the same amount of points as Gajser but had to settle for second overall due to the second moto ranking (1-2 compared to Gajser’s 2-1). Jordi Tixier finished in third place ahead of his team-mate Dylan Ferrandis. Arco di Trento hosted the first round of the European 125 and EMX250 championships, which saw 14 and 15 riders in each class respectively line up with Pirelli tyres. Next stop is Valkenswaard in the Netherlands.
