Team Honda- -Zanardo riders increase even more the competitiveness of their four strokes bikes, thanks to the great job made by the team coordinated by engineer Carlo Curci.

“What a nice event, but different from the normal Enduro! I really like but I had some problems losing a few seconds because of some falls. Above all, the final round in the evening was very spectacular for the public. It was not so easy, because the setup normally used in the enduro races is not suitable for an extreme competition. But I preferred to maintain an enduro setup in order to not compromise the feeling with a view to the upcoming race of the Italian Championship in Carsoli (AQ) and the last world round in France. However it was a great experience: for sure next year I will take part again”.

“Very nice race! I made a good start winning the first and the last special test, then I finished twice second and one third. I’m proud of my results with the Honda CRF 250 R. It is a pity that I felt down and I had a contusion to the quadriceps: the pain made me forced to the withdraw but It was a great experience”.

“A very interesting race, certainly different from those we normally participate. A format we liked and for this we thank the organizer, Sembenini Moto. We expected something more from Alex Salvini, even if he got a good final placement. He was penalized by some fall due to the fatigue, the high temperatures and the type of the track. Alessandro Battig made a great race winning some special tests and proving to be always more competitive ”.
