The end of the 2017 season arrived in Lonigo with the last Round of the Italian Championship last Sunday where Paco clinched the first title in the Open Class, after winning 4 golds in the Under 21 Class.
Second place in the meeting after a restart in the final which the Italian was leading in front of Covatti for 2 and a half laps, as the young Lenarduzzi crashed while at the back. Missed the start the second time after arriving at 5 seconds to the end of the 2-minute clock.
Paco said: " I'm over the moon now, even tho I am a little disappointed not to have won the Final as I was leading by far and felt so confident. It's a good end of the season, I had a few problems during the meeting with the bike and swapped it for the Final and it seemed like it was working until it was stopped. I wanted that gold medal very bad this year and I worked my butt off every day, and it paid off ".
