Official presentation of Team Bossini Sterilgarda Racing

The official presentation of Team Bossini Sterilgarda Racing has been made at a restaurant in Barcuzzi, Italy. The Italian outfit chose the picturesque venue on the edge of the Garda lake to officially unveil their line-up for the 125 World Championship in 2002, with riders Max Sabbatani and Stefano Bianco.

Max Sabbatani already has World Championship experience and regularly featured at the front in 2001. He qualified on the front row twice, including one pole position, and had a best placed finish of fifth. He ended the season in thirteenth overall having scored points in 12 of the 16 races. One of the Forli rider´s main problems in 2001 was with his tyres, although he improved at the halfway stage of the season after changing brands.

Alongside Sabbatani this season will be the ´Baby Centaur´, Stefano Bianco. The youngster shot to fame in 2000 at Phillip Island when he became the youngest rider to qualify for a Grand Prix at just 15 years of age. The Italian has since established his reputation in national and European competition and has shown good potential over the winter. Bianco has been the quickest of the 125 rookies so far and has lapped within the top 15 at each of the preseason tests.
