With nine Motocross World Championship titles, an incredible 93 GP victories, and 177 podium finishes to his name, Cairoli will bring his 18-year career as a professional motocross racer to a close at the end of the 2021 season.
Since 2010, when he joined KTM, Tony has been the foundation of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s motocross success, image, and development programme. Winning at least one Grand Prix each season over the last 18 years, Antonio handed KTM their first-ever premier class MXGP title back in 2010, and in total, the Italian secured four KTM 350 SX-F and one 450 SX-F powered MXGP titles for KTM.
Tony will continue his quest for a coveted 10th world title during the remaining rounds of the 2021 MXGP series before continuing with the KTM family in an advisory and ambassadorial role, sharing his expertise with the KTM group.
Grazie Tony, ricorderemo per sempre tutto quello che hai fatto per KTM! (Thanks Tony, we will always remember everything you did for KTM!).
