Outstanding weekend in Rovetta, near Bergamo, for Team S2 Sembenini Honda-RedMoto with Alex Salvini winner of the EnduroGP and E2 class on Sunday race.
This is first Salvini’s win in 2019 in EnduroGP and the third in E2 after the amazing double win of the GP of Portugal. This success arrived at the end of a tough weekend, since he suffered to his right shoulder all race long of due to the dislocation accused last weekend in Greece.
If on Saturday he finished fourth in E2 and ninth in EnduroGP, on Sunday he took his revenge pushing from the start to the end: he ended two times first, three times second, four time third in EnduroGP; five times first, three times second, once third and seventh in E2.
Thanks to this success Salvini confirms his leadership in his class.
Next competition is the seventh round of the Italian Championship, scheduled in Crespano del Grappa (TV) on 13thJuly.
“The day before the race I didn't know what to expect because I didn't think I could finish the race. Definitely I didn't think I would leave Rovetta as leader of the standing. Last week I was in a hospital bed, while today I won my class and the Overall. An unexpected but incredible feeling. It's one of my best victories: first because the Valli Bergamasche is a very hard race, second because it comes in a very difficult moment, third because I was in so much pain. Thanks to the team and all the sponsors that support us!”.
Gino Sembenini - Team Manager:
“Exciting and incredible race! We were competitive already yesterday and we had the right pace to get the home victory, but we missed it. Today Alex was a real hammer: he worked hard to conquer this result in front of his home crowd. It’s incredible to think that he got it with a dislocated shoulder! A double victory in E2 and EnduroGP: what a satisfaction! I'm proud of him and the whole team for the great job!”.
