Cairoli explains his big whip to Hangtown while leading!

Antonio Cairoli has given a hilarious explanation for the cool whip after his hole in Hangtown – because he wanted it for an enlarged photo with Ken Roczen in the background!

Donn Maeda from Swapmoto said:@antoniocairoli told me he threw a big whip after catching the holeshot in the second run, because he knew @kenroczen94 was nearby and he was hoping to get a cool shot to blow up for his house at home. 😂” Cairoli then responded by saying, “do it for the gram.”

Is there a cooler champion in the sport than TC? !

Cairoli, who will now compete in rounds three and four of the U.S. Nationals, finished top of the KTM at Hangtown, sixth overall, said of his day: “We improved a bit from last week, so I’m quite happy with the result. We still have to work on the speed a bit in the first laps of the race. The first three to four laps, I can’t really get into the rhythm. After 10 minutes of racing, I feel like I can stay there. I feel that we are improving every week, and we are also trying to improve the bike. We had tests last week, and next week we will do more tests. Hopefully we can improve a bit more before the next race.
