Baja Pordenone ep.1

Yesterday night i drove with my father to Pordenone for round 1 of the Baja World Cup, the Italian Baja, my friend Ezio was really nice to have me and my father sleep at his house for all the weekend. This morning we went to Mauro Sant’s (mechanic of Richard Sainct) shop to get the last things mounted on the bike, its incredible the amount of passion and professionality Mauro puts in his work so thanks to him i managed to finish up my bike. I got the chance also to see a big set of old Husaberg’s and the Tm Rally Kit he made. After i went to the paddock, got all the technical checks done and we had a first prologue special stage of 12km. The first part of the prologue was very fast until km 3 then we entered a river bed for almost 5km and to end with a last extremely fast section. The terrain was really slippery since the gravel roads are extremely dry. Tomorrow at 10 am we will start the race which will consist of 260km day with 160km of special stages and 100km of liason. The first 5 photos as you may see are fantastic and they were taken by Paola of Apphotosportso big thanks to her and Antonio:
