Official presentation of the Metis Racing Team

The Palazzo dell'Informazione in Milan, Italia, hosted today the official presentation of the Metis Racing Team formed by Manuel Poggiali and Lukas Pesek.

The event was attended by Giampiero Sacchi, head of DRD, Leo Mercanti from Derbi, Ivan Cossalter from Piaggio and Piermario Donadoni from Metis. As announced earlier this year, Poggiali and Pesek will defend the same Metis colours on different machinery of the Piaggio group.

After two seasons in the quarter litre class, Poggiali rejoins Gilera, the manufacturer with which he took the 125 title in 2001.

Lukas Pesek will ride a Derbi, which proved more and more competitive over the past few years. The Czech rider achieved promising results on his debut season last year and a positive pre-season generated a lot of expectations for his first season as a factory rider.
