Victories for Pirelli in the last round of “Internazionali d’Italia Motocross” in Mantova

Antonio Cairoli wins MX1 and SUPERCAMPIONE and prevails in both championships; victory for Calvin Vlaanderen in MX2

Antonio CairoliMantova’s 'Tazio Nuvolari' circuit hosted the last round of the Internazionali d'Italia Motocross 2018 and the SCORPION™ MX32™ Mid Soft front and the SCORPION™ MX Soft rear tyres allowed Pirelli’s riders to dominate all the races through the bumpy sand.

Antonio Cairoli showed that he will be the man to beat once more in 2018. The nine-time World Champion dominated the MX1 and Supercampione races taking overall victory in both championships. There were also excellent races for Yamaha riders Romain Febvre and Jeremy Van Horebeek who alternated second and third positions in MX1 and Supercampione and finished 1-2 in the series standings. It was an unlucky debut for Tim Gajser who was the victim of a bad fall that is likely to force him out of the opening round of MXGP in two weeks.
