FIM MX1 Motocross World Championship
Born on 23 September 1985 in Patti, Italy
In the MX1 category, Antonio Cairoli was once again the man to beat... And once again, he withstood all attempts to end his reign. Analysing this year’s results, one cannot but be full of admiration for the Sicilian who won 21 out of 32 races. His armour started to crack in Sweden where he had two DNFs and Clément Desalle took the red plate of the Championship leader but with 12 consecutive wins till the end of the season, Cairoli left his opponents without a chance.... en route to a sixth FIM Motocross World Championship award.
