Chatter Box: Antonio Cairoli

Presented by FLY Racing: FLY Racing has redefined expectations in safety and performance with the Formula helmet. Tested on the most advanced equipment in the world, the Formula helmet’s overall performance is best in class in both high velocity crashes as well as rotational and low speed impacts. Featuring RHEON technology, Conehead EPS, and a 12K carbon shell, the Formula’s Advanced Impact System (AIS) introduced a new approach to both protection and weight reduction. Weighing only 1290 grams, we believe the Formula to be the perfect combination of industry leading innovation and ultra-lightweight design. Simply put, the Formula helmet has changed the game.

MX Vice was one of the few media outlets invited to Antonio Cairoli’s intimate retirement announcement in Rome, Italy, on September 15. Moments after Cairoli confirmed his decision, he spared ten minutes of his time for an exclusive interview. There is a lot covered in the audio file below. Cairoli talks about the decision, whether his ride in Turkey caused his mind to change, helping the American riders with set-up, wanting to race in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and so much more. This interview is now available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and more.
