OOPS! TONY CAIROLI ENDOS IN SWITZERLAND
Tony Cairoli has been under the gun from the start of the 2018 450 World Championship. Although he kept teammate Jeffrey Herlings honest for the first third of the season, Tony was left to fend for himself once Herlings got rolling. For the most part, nobody else in the 450 field could run with Tony (and Tony couldn’t hold off Herlings).
In Switzerland, Cairoli had a his worst day of the series with a 8-6 day—no small part due to this massive endo. It looks like he hit neutral on the face of the jump and rode his KTM 450SXF into the ground on landing. He remounted, but was detuned.
Tony isn’t having a bad season—it’s just that Herlings is on a different plateau. Out of 32 motos so far this year, Tony has been in the top three 25 times, has won 6 motos, finished second 17 times and third twice. In any other year, this would be a winning formula
