USA here i come!!!

Today i recieved the confirmation by my partner AltRider of my participation as guest during the event “Taste of Dakar” in Las Vegas at the end of February. After meeting Jeremy at EICMA in November and recieving his support with the bash plate i used in the Dakar, he decided to offer me this big opportunity of going to the US and sent me today also the airplane tickets and AltRider will cover all my trip costs!! I am really excited and can’t wait to ride in the desert out of Las Vegas. It will be an enormous pleasure also to ride with Jimmy Lewis (was one of the only american riders to finish in the top 3 at Dakar some years ago!) and surely a good occasion to learn a lot!!! I will aslo get this occasion to search for new opportunities in the american motorsport scene since in Italy the situation is really bad, at the moment i am totally out of budget and trying to figure out how i will manage to race this year. I will fly in Los Angeles on the 21st of February and from the 24th to the 26th will be riding in the event organized by AltRider “Taste of Dakar” (CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFOS) and then i will stay in San Diego until the 5th of March. I want to thank Jeremy, Erik, Carlo and Piero for this opportunity and who knows, if i am lucky i might be able to race in the USA in 2013!! Here a link to a promo video of the event:
