The phone rings:
“I wanted to tell you that I’m already preparing to do a great #dodiciore”
I am surprised, very pleasantly surprised …
“Last Sunday I participated in a cross race and the rider I will pair with at Il Ciocco was faster than me. I am happy to share this experience with him. Doctor Luca Lorini, even before being a good driver, is an extraordinary man and I feel very lucky to have him as a friend and then… he doesn’t go slow at all. We will make a good team. The Gritti-Lorini crew will compete in 175 and will be a tough nut to crack for everyone. “
“On the other hand, this race has meant a lot for me and I want to honor it as best I can. I had the best partner (Imerio Testori ed) and we felt we were unbeatable. It was a great race full of news for those times and a really important victory for us.
I hope this year’s edition will bring us back to those good times. In any case, I wanted to tell you that I will be there“
Thanks Alessandro, thanks champion, there will be many of us in those days at the end of October to pay homage to what, all over the world, you represents for our sport. Your roar will be a great gift to all of us. To the future… we will think about it.
