The Fastest Time in Mexico was Tony Cairoli
Tony Cairoli and Sidi put their mark on the first-ever motocross World Championship race to take place in Mexico. The unstoppable streak of successes of the KTM champion goes on with his win in the MX1 category. The race took place on May 13 on the Guadalajara track in Mexico. After two spectacular and very close races, Cairoli conquered his second seasonal title, bringing his career tally to 45.
After a Speedy Gonzales-like fast start, Cairoli dominated and won race1, crossing the checkered flag on the finish line alone. During race2 Cairoli, who didn’t start quite as fast, encountered a few problems but was prompt to react, literally unleashing his talent and being able to come back from behind and obtain third place. Given those two results, Cairoli was the winner of the first edition of the Mexico Grand Prix, bringing Sidi Crossfire boots with him on the highest step of the podium.
Ken de Dycker completed the great success for Sidi, riding a KTM motorcycle and ending third in race1 and fifth in race2. The rider was barely left out of the podium, obtaining fourth place in the overall Grand Prix standings. The world championship is firing up race after race, becoming more and more challenging and lively. Tony Cairoli is retaining his strong lead, with 178 points. Desalle is in second place with 149, while Paulin has 134 points in third and De Dycker has moved up to fourth with 131.
New horizons are opening for the motocross World Championship after its Mexican stint. The Championship will have a new chapter in South America, where the Brazil Grand Prix is scheduled to take place next week. Cairoli will do everything he can to once again precede all his rivals… the competitors have been warned.
