UGT ABRUZZO outfit hold official team presentation

The UGT ABRUZZO team held their official presentation ceremony last weekend ahead of the World Championship´s return to European soil. The team´s riders are Gino Borsoi, Steve Jenkner and Alex Baldolini, and they will be carrying the colours and logo of ABRUZZO, even though APTR (Regional Tourism Promotional Office) are the set-up´s main sponsor.

Gino Borsoi has begun the season by finishing tenth in Suzuka and seventh in Welkom. The Italian rider, who hopes to make it on to the podium in Jerez, stated that he has a lot of faith in the team´s potential. ´I´m very hopeful about this year´s championship. The structure of the UGT ABRUZZO team allows me to really express myself, and I believe that my results so far are above and beyond what the sponsors were expecting.´

Steve Jenkner, who claimed fourth place in Welkom after his disappointment in Suzuka, believes that he will be able to produce some important results this season. ´I´m 100 percent satisfied with the work the team has carried out, and want to thank the sponsors for the confidence they´ve shown in us. This is a very difficult championship, but I´m going to work really hard to achieve the best results possible.´

The outfit´s other rider, Alex Baldolini is making his World Championship debut this year. In Suzuka he scored his first points and is eager to pick up all he can this season. ´This is my first year in the World Championship, and I feel fortunate to be able to ride for the UGT ABRUZZO team and to have the team-mates that I have. I´m learning very quickly at the moment, and I´m going to do everything possible to try and pay back the sponsors for the faith they have shown in both me and the team´.
