Davide Guarneri and Alex Salvini take on a new role in Fantic Racing

Fantic names Davide Guarneri and Alex Salvini as Supervisors of the brand’s Factory Racing Teams, with Guarneri focusing on Motocross and Salvini on Enduro. Introducing this new position in the organizational structure of Fantic Racing aims at managing and coordinating the relations between the Italian manufacturer and the teams with the official riders in the best possible way and further strengthens the technical know-how inside the ever-growing racing department.   

In the 2024 season, Fantic fields no less than three teams in the World and European Motocross Championships, notably returning to the MXGP class with Louis Voster’s proven structure. The Fantic XXF 250 bikes in the MX2 and EMX250 class are run by the squad of Matteo Migliori and Emanuele Giovanelli, while Daniele Marchese’s outfit is set to tackle the EMX125 European Championship with three promising young riders.

Fantic continues to support the future generation of the sport also through a new Enduro junior project managed by Antonio Specia, alongside Simone Albergoni’s well-established Fantic Factory Racing Enduro Team.

Mariano Roman, CEO Fantic Motor SpA:
“We are delighted to be able to benefit from the experience and know-how that both Davide Guarneri and Alex Salvini gained over many years at the highest level of the sport. Already linked to Fantic as test riders, this new role will enable them to make an even more valuable contribution to support our teams, official riders and the whole racing department. Passion and expertise will be Fantic Racing's winning features in the years to come.”

Davide Guarneri, Supervisor Motocross Teams:
“This new position brings new excitement and a new challenge for me. After having spent so many years of my career in the Motocross World Championship I am back in the paddock, not as a rider anymore but in a new role that makes me proud and motivates me a lot. I will try my best to support Fantic and its racing efforts on all levels, starting from the 125 category all the way up to the MXGP class. We have already seen the first results and we will try to be consistent and gradually improve over the course of the season.”

Alex Salvini, Supervisor Enduro Teams:
“I am very happy about this new role. It’s a new position for me to be in where I will try to use all my experience to support our teams and riders. The relationship with them is great, Simone Albergoni used to be my teammate in the past and Antonio ‘Tony’ Specia has worked as my technician for several years, we also won the World Championship together in 2013. I hope this can be a good base that allows us to accomplish important results at the Enduro World Championship as well as at the Assoluti d’Italia, following up the success that Fantic has already enjoyed in recent years.”
