Giampero Sacchi excited by 2007 Aprilia challenge Piaggio Group Sporting Director Giampero Sacchi gave a short speech at yesterday's presentation for Spain's No1 Aprilia, the 250cc team of World Champion Jorge Lorenzo. The Italian spoke about Aprilia's goals for both the quarter litre class and 125cc category, as they attempt to follow on from a fantastic 2006.

"This year's challenge is very exciting for everybody. Defending the riders title is something that's going to be difficult, it's a great responsibility," commented Sacchi. "We know this but, with all due respect to our rivals, we're going to give it our all to repeat the success of 2006."

Dani Amatriain, Manager of the Spain's No1 team, also spoke about his expectations for the coming year. "You don't need to put pressure on Jorge Lorenzo. He's already won a World Championship under tremendous pressure. We have to concentrate on our own work, which is what maintains his competitive edge."
