2020 edition of the Italian Enduro championship took place on Sunday 6 September in Calci (PI), one of the most important events of the year, where the prestigious “Italian colours” shirts are awarded.
Due to the very few races in this particular period, the number of participants was very high, with bikers from all disciplines of the Italian Gravity panorama who helped raising the level of this competition!
The typical “downhill style” of the track put the athletes’ driving abilities to the test, with technical spots that required a lot of skills and aggressive riding.
Strong heat together with the length of transfers was a very important aspect, that showed the importance of proper nutrition and hydration during the race day, in a complex season in terms of training and research of the optimal physical shape.
Excellent results for our athletes, especially with a view to future growth:
- Filippo Masotti finished 41st overall and 7th in his category;
- Alberto Stopani, penalized by a flat tire, still finished the race with a good 53rd overall position and 10th in his category;
- Michele Angeletti arrived 101st overall and 13th in the category;
- Good performance also for the young Francesco Gardina 36th among the youngest.
As usual, congratulations to our riders and to the new Italian Champions 2020!
A special “thanks” also to our president Simone Concas, who followed the team in this trip preparing the bikes in the best possible way and supporting our guys during the race.
