Hailing from Sicily, the tip of the motorcycle boot of Italy, Antonio "Tony the Tiger" Cairoli is a household name across Europe, a motocross champion known for unmitigated tenacity, unparalleled style and a personality as warm as calzone straight outtadaoven.
While Tony is already destined for his own chapter in motocross history books, his building achievements take him closer to the top riders of all time as each season passes. In 2011, when the Italian achieved his third FIM MX1 World Title in a row (the second one on the revolutionary 350cc KTM), it added to his two MX2 Champion wins, giving him five total FIM Motocross World Title, as many as European legends Roger De Coster, Eric Geboers, Georges Jobe and Joel Smets.
At just 26, there’s plenty of ferocity left in the Tiger. He looks to continue adding titles to his name under on the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team for the 2012 season while rocking his signature SPY® + Cairoli Whip™ goggle.
