De Angelis leaves Cecchinello to join Borsoi

Alex de Angelis decided to leave Lucio Cecchinello´s team to join newly formed Racing World team. The rider from San Marino will ride a 125cc Aprilia RSW alongside Gino Borsoi. The Italian rider is one of the men behind this new team, with Giuseppe Gabrielli, who was previously in charge of the team which brought Pellino to the runner up title in the European Championship.

De Angelis explains his choice : ´I was convinced by the strength and determination of this new team. They give their best to help me to reach the top and they even control what I eat ! The presence of Gabrielli in the team also helped me to make this choice, as he will help me to improve and has already welcomed me as a son´.

Former manager Lucio Cecchinello said : ´I can only say that I don´t really understand why Alex made this choice. This year, he was treated as a professional rider and he didn´t lack of technical support. He had all the guarantees to do a great season´.
