Antonio Carioli closes in on Motoross crown

  • Intro:

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Antonio Cairoli won both MX1 races to clinch his sixth Motocross Grand Prix in a row in Lierop, Netherlands on Sunday.


    Germany's Maximilian Nagl got off to a good start in the first race of MX1 Race 1 Benelux Grand Prix in Lierop on Sunday.

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Ken de Dycker was up to third by the second lap, and the Belgian would finish Race 1 in that position.

    Cairoli managed to battle his way up to the front and finally took the lead on lap thirteen and the Italian went on to win the race by eight seconds with Nagl in second place.

    Nagl made a good start once again in race two, but a fall at turn four meant the German rider failed to finish the race as the foot peg of his KTM bike was completely broken.

    Portugal's Rui Goncalves also came off his machine in the incident, however the Honda rider managed to recover and would eventually finish eighth.

    Tanel Leok finished almost ten seconds clear of the Russian Evgeny Bobryshev to take third.

    Antonio Cairoli won his second race of the day, finishing over fifteen seconds ahead of second-placed De Dycker.

    The two race wins saw Cairoli take his sixth Grand Prix victory in a row, while De Dycker finished second overall and Leok of Rockstar Energy Suzuki World was third.

    Cairoli could win the title if results go his way at the Grand Prix of Europe, which will be held at the Italian track of Faenza next Sunday.
