Antonio Cairoli will not participate in the first round of the International of Italy of Motocross 2020, scheduled for this weekend in Riola Sardo (OR) in Sardinia. The driver of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MXGP is carrying out the preparation phase for the MXGP World Championship at best, and with his team after the training and tests carried out on the Malagrotta track (Rome) he has already moved to the North for about fifteen days -West of Sardinia to intensify the motorcycle sessions on different terrains. In agreement with Team Manager Claudio De Carli, Antonio has decided to postpone his return to the race for at least a couple of weeks; could line up at the start of the third round of the Internazionali on the weekend of February 9 on the Tazio Nuvolari track in Mantua. “It is more than a month before the start of the World Cup – explains Claudio De Carli – and we must not be in a hurry for Tony’s return behind the starting gate. For the shoulder injury (GP Kegums) and the subsequent surgery he was stopped for a long period and then began rehabilitation with great will and excellent results. He has worked well since he got back on the bike but we have estimated that we can grow a little more in condition and our goal is the world championship. At the moment we think he can get on track in Mantua in two weeks.
