The Italian Championship kicked off this weekend at San Gemini. Lorenzo Gandola had a great debut in the premier class with an impressive Top5, while Marco Andreoli made it to the top of the podium in the TR3 Open class.
It was a day of debuts for Lorenzo Gandola, as the Italian rising star made his first official outing aboard the brand new Vertical R. This was also his first race with the big boys, but he wasn’t intimidated by the more experienced riders nor the impressive level of the sections. He was fighting all day long for the top spots, keeping his cool and using his prime technique to build his way up to the Top5 by the end of the race. A great result that means an important boost of confidence and motivation for him.
Marco Andreoli brought Vertigo his first victory of the season in the Italian Series. He put in a dominant ride and no one was able challenge him for the victory in the TR3 Open class. There was yet another podium for the team, as young prospect Gabriele De Agostinis finished third in the Junior class after a brilliant performance.
In the TR2 class Michele Andreoli finished in a positive 8th place, same position taken by Angelo Piu in TR3 Open. Edoardo Prtigliatti was 5th in TR3 while Gierri Nobili 9th in TR4.
