GUARNERI AND DEL BONO, RIDERS OF THE E/50 RACING FANTIC FACTORY TEAM, WERE THE STARS AT PIEDILUCO IN THE 125 AND YOUTH CLASSES. MANCUSO AND CRISTINO GOT PODIUMS IN THE 125 AND YOUTH CLASSES, FABRIS LEADER OF THE YOUTH CLASS
Piediluco, a small village in the Terni area just a few kilometres from the Marmore Falls, hosted the fourth and fifth rounds of the top Italian championship and the Fantic riders were the undisputed stars. Davide Guarneri (E/50 Racing Fantic Factory Team) dominated the 125 class while his teammate Daniele Del Bono won the Youth class on Sunday. Riccardo Fabris (Fantic JET Racing) got on the final podium and confirmed himself as the leader of the Youth class, while Kevin Cristino (Fantic Darpa Racing Team) conquered a second place in the Youth class on Sunday.
The domination of the Fantic riders continues in the Youth and 125 categories at the Assoluti d'Italia di Enduro in the two days of competition on Saturday 24th April and Sunday 25th April. The organizers of the fourth and fifth round of the maximum Italian championship have organized a race with three very challenging special tests, both with hard terrain typical of central Italy.
The Fantic XE 125s of our three official teams proved once again to be reliable and competitive motorbikes and finished the double day of competition without any problem.
In the 125 class, former motocross rider Davide Guarneri came out on top and won both days of competition, dominating right from the first special test. Right behind Davide Guarneri another Fantic rider, Giuliano Mancuso (Fantic Darpa Racing Team) who collected two second places.
Great week-end also for the Fantic riders in the Youth class. Riccardo Fabbris of Fantic JET Racing is the leader of the class and on Saturday he conquered an excellent second place. Triplet for the Fantic colours on Sunday with Daniele Del Bono of the E/50 Racing Fantic Factory Team winner of the Youth, Kevin Cristino, rider of the Fantic Darpa Racing Team, who won the second position and Riccardo Fabris who completes the day's hat trick of Fantic JET Racing.
In the Foreigners class, an excellent performance for Harry Edmondson (Fantic JET Racing) and Jed Etchell (Fantic Darpa Racing Team).
Next appointment is scheduled on May 16 at Fabriano, in the Marche region, where the sixth round of the Assoluti d'Italia di Enduro will be run.
