Italian MXoN Team Set
It is that time of year—time for the 2012 Motocross of Nations teams to begin to take shape. Today, the Italian Motorcycling Federation (FMI) announced the three riders who will represent Italy at the 2012 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations set for September 30th in Lommel, Belgium. Riding the MX1 class will be five-time World Champion Antonio Cairoli, with Alessandro Lupino lining up in MX2 and Davide Guarneri taking on the MX3 class. The Italian team took a major blow when David Philippaerts went down and was injured, but they will still have a solid team on the line this year.
