MX1, QATAR GP: TONY CAIROLI BREAKS OUT WITH QUITE THE SHOW
Accompanying Cairoli on his new world adventure are his Sidi Crossfire 2 boots

Maser (Treviso) 04 March, 2013 - Antonio Cairoli’s showmanship was on full display at the Qatar Gran Prix, the race that opened the 2013 motocross world series during an exceptional night-time race on Saturday, March 2nd.  
In the first heat, after a poor departure that put him back in eighth place, Cairoli made a spectacular comeback, passing rider after rider to make it back into third place.
The rules for the second heat in Losail saw the 20 best riders from the MX1 lined up together with the 20 top riders from the MX2 in a one-and-only Super-final; it was an experiment that will be repeated in all extra-European races.
It was in this very same super-final that Antonio Cairoli took off in a strong position from the very start. In the first curve he was in third place and then he blew away all the competition to take off in solitary towards a memorable victory.
With his third place in the first heat and his first place in the Super-final, Antonio Cairoli captured second place overall in the Qatar GP, close on the heels of his biggest rival, 2012 Vice-World Champion Clemente Desalle  from Belgium. Frenchman Gautier Paulin came in third.
It was a great achievement for Sidi Sport as well, who saw their ace reaffirm himself as the man to beat in the MX1 world series. As always, his Sidi Crossfire 2 boots shared part in Cairoli’s triumph.
The next appointment in the motocross World Series will be on Sunday, March 10th in Thailand.
