Cairoli wins Elite

Red Bull KTM Factory rider Antonio Cairoli was brilliant once again as he won the Elite race, taking the Italian championship and really looking like the favorite going into the opening GP of the season at Qatar in two weeks time.

The Elite race between the MX1 and MX2 riders was obviously without Herlings.

Prado took the holeshot on his 250 machine, but was quickly passed by Van Horebeek , Cairoli and Butron. Prado was fourth, followed by Bobryshev. Bobryshev went down hard and looked shaken up. A lot of riders crashing this weekend.

Cairoli moved into second after passing Butron. Soon after the Italian legend then also passed Van Horebeek for the lead. Cairoli is just on it this year. Cairoli got the moto win, and the championship. He nows heads to Qatar with massive confidence.
