Too bad, because I really want this victory and dedicate it to my dear friend Pierpaolo, who died last Friday in a car accident. Anyway I dedicate him my first position in E2.

“ Salvini gets close to the victory. Too bad, because without the fall in the third line test he would got a great result in the Italian Championship. But anyway he got a good result with the Honda- CRF 450R Enduro. Now the struggle for the leadership in the overall classification is still open, even if Meo has some points of advantage.

“ Today Salvini was the protagonist of a perfect race: without the fall he could get the overall victory, but anyway we are happy with this third place. His performance is positive and is part of a general improvement. His time in the line test were always very good, instead he suffered a bit 'in the cross and in the extreme test. We have to keep on working, but we are confident. Battig confirmed his good qualities with good performances in the final line test ”.
