12 Ore Il Ciocco

Giorgio Grasso

Giorgio Grasso Motociclista Enduro

“I thank the organizers for the opportunity they give me to be able to participate in a race in which I could not be at the start but which I have heard so much about. At that time I was 11 years old and I was told about the 12 hours Il Ciocco only after my competitive debut six years later.

I would like to start with a Gilera 125, the same bike with which I won my first title (Italian Junior champion class 125) “.

After that first championship title, the good Giorgio won 15 between 1981 and 1995, including three absolute titles. Figures reserved only for great champions destined to leave a profound mark.

An exciting career, but like all purebred champions, never satisfied with victories, and grateful to a world that has given him so much, he left us declaring:

“I’ll be there!”
