Gibernau shines in second annual Riders for Health golf tournament

Gibernau shines in second annual Riders for Health golf tournament

The annual Day of Champions kicks off today at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, with all proceeds raised by the opening of the MotoGP paddock to the public and the numerous events which take place throughout the day going towards the Riders for Health organisation. Once again proceedings started a little earlier this year, as the charitable trust held a second edition of its fundraiser Golf Tournament at `El Bosque´ golf club just a few miles from the Cheste track yesterday.

With Spanish MotoGP stars Sete Gibernau, Fonsi Nieto and Alex Debon all joining in the competition, the participants were treated to a good day's play, despite the mixed weather. Gibernau showed his prowess with the clubs as he shot a great round which took him to second place overall, while Nieto and Debon clearly enjoyed themselves despite never having played a full round before. After the winners' presentation ceremony there was an auction for all those involved which sold off several items donated to Riders, including a Gilera Poggiali replica scooter and polo shirts signed by Spain´s golfing sensation, Sergio Garcia, with the entire day raising a significant amount for the organisation which helps solve mobility problems in Africa.
