No one ever should ever question an Italian’s passion. This past weekend, the FIM MX GP World Championship returned for the first time in years to Italy’s historic Maggiora circuit and fans came out in droves to see their hero, Antonio Cairoli, run with the MX1 class. Sadly, AC222 had a rough day on the old-school layout and was bested by Gautier Paulin for the overall victory, but Cairoli’s fellow Italians went ballistic when their guy jumped out to the lead in the first moto.
