Team Jolly Zanardo
January 05th, 2018
With great pleasure and pride we announce the passage of Alex Salvini to the Team Jolly Zanardo. The rider from Bologna has signed a contract with the Team Jolly Zanardo and the bike chosen for the 2018 season is a Husqvarna FE 450.
The Team Manager Franco Mayr and Alex Salvini have already worked together in 2013, a golden year for the Bolognese rider who saw him climb the roof of the world in the E2 class after an excellent season. Reunion inevitable of the Team Manager Franco Mayer and Alex Salvini considering the esteem and respect that binds them and those unforgettable moments that they shared. In the seasons 2018 and 2019 Alex Salvini will work and run for the Team Jolly Zanardo participating in the Enduro Italian Championships, the Enduro World Championship (Enduro GP) and some SuperEnduro GP.
The project of the Team Jolly Zanardo continues with a focus on the promotion of young promises from the endure scene, as was the young and unripe Ruy Barbosa Barcelo who, thanks to his hard work and the support of the whole team, conquered this year the bronze medal in the Youth Cup. With the arrive of Alex Salvini in the staff of the JET Team, the young project acquires even more value thanks to the share of great experience and technique that the rider from Bologna can put at the service of our riders Youth and Junior. Before mid-January, the tests will start with the other team members that we will introduce more later.
If our project continues to grow, is thanks to our sponsors, Zanardo Spa in head to everybody, thanks to them we have always the opportunity to have perfect and competitive bikes.
"New Year, New Life. The 2018 season is coming and for me it starts with a lot of enthusiasm and with the willingness to show my value. For various reasons I decided to sign a contract with the Team Jolly Zanardo, primarily because with Franco Mayr I won the E2 title in 2013 but also because in these years I have seen the whole team grow and work with commitment and professionalism. This year our commitments will be numerous and the bike chosen is a Husqvarna FE 450. The mechanics of the Team, in these few days of testing, have done an excellent job managing to set the bike in the best way. The debut with the Team Jolly Zanardo is imminent and this weekend we will be in Germany for the second round of the SuperEnduro where I will race with a Husqvarna FE 350 that we will put aside after the German GP to continue testing with the Husqvarna FE 450 and get ready for the long and challenging race season."
"I am proud of the trust that Alex Salvini has placed in me and throughout the team. With Alex we will have more incentives and a further opportunity to aim for important goals and even our mechanics are thrilled to work with the Bolognese rider. In common agreement with Alex we decided that his mechanic will be Luca Castellana considering that they have already worked together in the lucky 2013. I would like to point out that in any case the mechanics will be working with all the riders of the team, following their own skills. Stefano Pelissero the coordinator and motorcycles and engines mechanics, Matthew Savi engine mechanics and GianLuca Corsi suspension technician. I'm sure that Alex will be a great example and help for all the other riders that I hope will be able to take from him all the experience gained in these years to a high level.
