The real news, of course, lies in Cairoli’s return to racing. The nine-time world champion finished MXGP (but not racing, read the US entry) in 2021, but the attraction of an event like Motocross of Nations is clearly very strong. Interesting details: it is 1985, Guadagnini 2002, Adamo 2003 and Forato 2000. Gil, in essence.
This is Traversini’s statement to FMI: “We decided to focus on this training by looking at our children’s results. In the races held so far, Antonio Cairoli has shown that he has the best pace, and in any case a driver like him is a very valuable resource, which will be for any national team. Guadagnini was able to deal with early season problems by showing his speed in MXGP, while Adamo is consistently among the best in MX2 and an injury to his left knee does not seem to be a concern for Motocross of Nations, with this event still missing several weeks.”
