KTM boss Pit Beirer has warned that 2021 could be veteran Tony Cairoli’s final season in MXGP and the factory is ‘planning a pretty fantastic farewell tour’ for the little Italian.

Cairoi has nine World Championships to his name, 92 Grand Prix victories, 270 race wins, and 172 podiums – his statistics are more than just a little impressive but it all has to come to an end sometime.

“We are planning a pretty fantastic farewell tour for Tony. It could be his last season this year. I think this coming season will be a mix of giving him the chance to finish his career a proper way, his last GP must be a GP with a lot of fans,” said Beirer.


“He will definitely put his signature on a brand-new motocross generation that we will bring the year after so also there he will be heavily involved. He will be more than busy in 2021.”
