On Saturday the 23rd of September, the 6th Round of the Italian Championship was held in Terenzano.
The main riders that stood out of the box were the two Italians Castagna and Covatti, and the Slovenian rider Nick Skorja. Covatti won the final in front of so-far maximum man Paco Castagna in a fantastic battle in the Final.
The 7th Round which was meant to be held on Sunday was rained-off after loads of rain that came down during the day.
" I'm disappointed but also happy of what I learnt ", Paco said, "I was very confident going into the meeting and I think I showed it too, but on the Final, a small mistake cost me the first place. I was leading, me and Nico passed and re-passed each other a few times, until he got the better of me. It's not ok of course, but with 1 Round to go every point is vital until the end."
