MXGP of Trentino number 1: This weekend took sixteenth Grand Prix of the 2020 Motocross World Championship at Arco di Trento in Italy.
Tony Cairoli wins 92nd career Grand Prix, sits 2nd in the standings and still has a mathematical chance of the MXGP crown.
Tony Cairoli: “I’m really happy to win the overall and to ride with Clement in the second moto; it was like a few years ago when we used to fight for the title! We were riding fast today. It’s always good to win in Italy but it's not the same without any public so thanks to all those who were supporting from home. We’ll try to do our best for the rest of the championship. Tim is far ahead but we’ll try to enjoy the last two races and see what happens.”
Tom Vialle goes 2-3 to carry a 73-point lead with 100 remaining in 2020.
Tom Vialle: “It was a good day for the championship. I was really angry with myself for that small crash in the second moto because I was feeling much better compared to the first race. To lose the GP like that was frustrating. Anyway, we have two more GPs to go. Last week I was thinking about the championship and also after the race today but when I’m on the bike I am really focused. I enjoyed the track, so that was an important thing as well.”
MXGP stays in Trentino this week. The Grands Prix of Pietramurata (Weds 4th November) and Garda Trentino (Sunday 8th November) will bring the 2020 campaign to a close in the coming days.
