alex salviniALEX SALVINI (E2 Class Honda- CRF 450R Enduro)“It was a good race and a good training with a view to the last round of the World Championship. The organization made a good job and today I faced a tough race. I made some mistakes that slowed me down a bit', including a fall in the last cross test. I have always been very competitive, fighting with Antoine Meo for the first position. The last special test was decisive and I won just for a few seconds. Now let's close in the best way this 2015 season, with the last world GP in France and the last round of the Italian Championship in Borno”

“I felt two times in the first special test and that conditioned my whole day. I struggled in the line test, while in the cross one I recovered the lost time. I’ve been fourth for the whole day, but thanks to the excellent time in the last special test I managed to get on the third step of the podium. Too bad because I could do better and take advantage in the standing, but I lost only two points on Albergoni, maintaining the leadership of E1 ”.

Anyway, at the end of the day, after having been fourth for most of the race, he managed to reach the third step of the podium. He limited the damage in the standing, maintaining the leadership of E1 class”.

“Positive race for Salvini, who started very fast and determined. In the line test he could make a real difference, but also in the cross one he has always been strong despite a crash in the final lap. The fight for the overall victory between Salvini and Meo was great, however Salvini deserved this victory: we were searching it since the beginning of the season. Unfortunately Battig was not very fast: we have to work to prepare him in view of the last race of the World Championship in France and for the last one of the Italian”.
