MXGP Legend Tony Cairoli will make his debut this summer at the AMA Pro Outdoor Motocross races. The Italian rider has been scheduled to appear in the opening Round of the series set for Fox Raceway at Pala, California on May 28th. He will also race the Hangtown Motocross Classic the following weekend.
Cairoli will race in the 450 class for the Red Bull KTM team.
“It’s exciting to finally confirm that I will be racing in the U.S. To ride and race in America is something I always wanted to try. I like the look of the tracks. For me there is no pressure to perform and I’m not going there with the same preparation as I would have had for a world championship but I’m taking it seriously and would be looking for good results. I know this will generate some interest and it will be great to travel, see some friends and enjoy my time,” said Cairoli.
