Antonio Cairoli reign victorious in Mantova

13.05.2019: The 5th round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in Mantova, Italy has been one to remember. While the rain continues to fall at the Monster Energy MXGP

The 5th round of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship in Mantova, Italy has been one to remember. While the rain continues to fall at the Monster Energy MXGP of Lombardia, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s dynamic duo of Antonio Cairoli and Jorge Prado reigned in their own right taking the respective MXGP and MX2 category overall wins this weekend.




With MXGP returning to the Mantova venue for the first time since the 2016 season, the world’s best community of fans watched on as the world’s best athletes showed their skills on the soggy sand. While the winds of change brought dramatic conditions today they also provided epic action in a race where anything was possible.
 
 
 
After evening storms yesterday’s hard and dry surface was nowhere to be found but Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli let it have no effect on his results starting race one with the Fox Holeshot.



Cairoli’s biggest competitor as of late, Team HRC’s Tim Gajser had a good jump off the line but lost traction on the front of his Honda heading into turn one which sent him over the bars along with several others.



While Cairoli had the lead from the first turn fellow Italian Ivo Monticelli and his Standing Construct KTM teammate Max Anstie where in 2nd and 3rd. A mistake from Monticelli saw Anstie go past almost taking both down while Cairoli tipped over just a corner later. The bobble from Cairoli put Anstie on the Sicilian’s rear wheel but quick to regroup the #222 pulled back away.



Gajser’s race one went from bad to worse when he was clipped by another rider midair causing the Slovenian to resample the soil. The strong riding of Monticelli in third was all for nothing when his bike gave out just as Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pauls Jonass took the spot halfway through the race.



More crashes from Gajser held him to 10th while both Jonass and his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna teammate Arminas Jasikonis passed Anstie. The first checkered flag then went out with Cairoli taking the win 10 seconds ahead of Jonass, Jasikonis, Anstie, and Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle who rounded out the top five just ahead of Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP’s Gautier Paulin.



Race 2 again saw Cairoli with the FOX Holeshot, his 7th of 2019, while Gajser came away clean but behind Cairoli was Paulin and Team HRC’s Brian Bogers. Monticelli again had bad luck crashing in turn 2 and pulling out of the race.



Not long after Monticelli’s mishap his teammate Max Anstie crashed together with RFX KTM’s Shaun Simpson. With Anstie also pulling out of the race Glenn Coldenhoff was now the lone Standing Construct rider as he ran in 5th position.



Brian Bogers took over second from Paulin early in the race with Jonass also getting past the #21. Jasikonis, unlike Jonass, was unable to match his strong race 1 result as he fought from 23rd on the first lap up to 15th by the finish.



At the front it was all smooth sailing for Cairoli who recorded the perfect weekend leading 42 laps of the 42 available via 12 laps in Qualifying, 15 in Race 1, and another 15 in Race 2. The domination and double race win scored him the GP overall at Mantova for the 4th time in his career with 2 in MX2 (2007 & 2008) and 2 in MXGP (2010 and now 2019).



Taking the best single race result in his MXGP career was Bogers in second while Jonass took third, Paulin took 4th, Coldenhoff 5th, and Gajser 6th. The overall top five was filled out by Jonass taking his first MXGP Podium, Paulin, Desalle, and Coldenhoff.




Antonio Cairoli,
“It is very nice to be again in Italy, despite the weather there were a lot of people today, so I am very thankful they keep coming and keep cheering. I am really happy of course, thanks to all the team for their hard work again and I am looking forward to next week in Portugal which is another track that I really like.”



Pauls Jonass, “
It feels really good to be back here and especially with the MXGP guys. It has been a tough winter and a tough few months but it feels really great to be up here. We still need to keep working hard because I’m far off from my best shape but we will keep working and hopefully I can be back on the podium again soon.”



Gautier Paulin, “
When the track is really rough like this you can gain a lot of points but you can also lose them. I am pretty happy, after the break we made a big step with the bike, I really feel good. Today wasn’t the result I expected but I am on the box so it is always a pleasure for my team and myself. There will be good GP’s coming and I can’t wait to get behind the gate again.”
