Video: Weege show – Cairoli and Dungey

Tony Cairoli has expalined why he was racing some AMA motocross races this summer in the press conference: “Actually I was a little bit bored with the MXGP, everything around the races, and I said Ok I have always wanted to do some racing in the U.S. where the tracks look amazing, and so many lines. And on the race day it’s so much nicer than the GP rounds where its mainly one lined. Here it looks everything more wide and more lines so I would always love to come of course I would have loved to do it when I was at the height of my career not when I am 37 years old, but it is still fantastic that I have the chance to be here.

“Of course it’s going to be something new but I like one day (events) more because my physical condition is not like ten years ago when I was 27 or 25. Now it takes longer but it is all in one day so it is a little bit better for me. I really like it. Of course, the practice is short, and the time, you need to put a good time quickly so this is not what we are used to, but we can figure it out hopefully and we can make a not so bad time hopefully.”

Jason Weigandt then caught up with two legends coming out of retirement ahead of round one at Pala Antonioa Cairoli and Ryan Dungey – can they top five or even podium this weekend?

Cairoli also got a special gift from renthal when his name and titles engraved on the bar for one of the greatest of all time:
