Tony Cairoli finished second overall at Loket with a 1st place finish in the first moto and a 4th place finish in the second moto.
“The first race was good. I got the holeshot and made some good laps. I had very good speed and I could pull away and make a good gap,” says Cairoli. “In the second I got a good jump out of the gate but I went a bit too wide in the first corner and one of the inside riders clipped my wheel. I didn’t want to crash so quite a few riders got past me and I was back at around 10 or 11. Then another rider made a mistake going over one of the jumps and he crashed in front of me when I was on the jump and I was again back in 7 or 8th place. It was difficult to pass but at the end of the race I managed to get up to Max who was riding well in third and passed him. By then it was too late to go for the win.”
