Profile of a Champion
Antonio "Tony" Cairoli
(born 23 September 1985)
is an Italian nine-time Grand Prix motocross world champion, widely regarded as one of the greatest motocross riders of all time.
He is so successful, he celebrated his 50th GP
win in a world championship back in 2012.
Cairoli was born in Patti, Sicily. He began his motocross Grand Prix career in 2002 riding a Yamaha. He was the 2005 FIM world champion in the MX2-GP class. In 2007 he again won the
MX2-GP world championship as well as the English Supercross championship.
Cairoli claimed the 2009
MX1-GP FIM Motocross World Championship,
and after moving to Red Bull KTM Factory Racing, successfully defended his title in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and MXGP 2014 .
Cairoli has won several races at the Motocross des Nations, particularly in 2012 and 2013 when he managed to win every single race he entered.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team has been a partner of Adria since 2013 at the Dakar rally in South America, where each year a fleet of Adria Sonic and Matrix motorhomes support the triumphant KTM riders.
Adria has created a special series of custom built Twin camper vans specifically for the needs of the KTM Motocross team in the FIM World Championship. Motocross is a form of extreme off-road racing held in enclosed circuits in front of a large fan base and this year’s championship runs through 14 race events across Europe and 1 in the USA, culminating in the final race in the UK on October 1st. It dates back to the early 1990’s “trials” and was the first racing trophy to be won by the KTM brand back in 1974. The Adria Twins used by KTM are highly customised versions of the popular camper van. Branded in the motorcycle company’s dramatic orange livery, these special Twins are “ready for everything”. Adria custom KTM Twins in action. Special custom features include KTM interior styling, with special leather trim and cabinetry. Underneath the core of the campervans are the standard models, where features such as the kitchen, bathroom and large rear bedroom (which converts to extra storage) all come in handy during a race weekend.
