Bread making and agriculture on MotoGP agenda

MotoGP riders Alex Hofmann and Carlos Checa were joined by 125cc World Championship contender Gabor Talmacsi as the trio took a trip to Casa Musea d'Erci at midday.

One of the most eagerly anticipated Grands Prix of the season, the Gran Premio d'Italia Alice, takes place this weekend, and already the paddock has experienced an influx of riders, press and fans eager to catch a glimpse of their idols.

MotoGP riders Alex Hofmann and Carlos Checa were joined by 125cc World Championship contender Gabor Talmacsi as the trio took a trip to Casa Musea d'Erci at midday. The visit to the agricultural museum proved an eye-opening experience, as the two wheel stars learnt about the farming history of the Mugello region through tools, photos and documents preserved through the ages.

The museum also invited the riders to prepare some traditional produce from the area, a schiacciata bread. With the visit coinciding with lunchtime, Hofmann, Checa and Talmacsi were able to sample the fruits of their labour with a healthy appetite. To round off the day, a group of schoolchildren posed questions to the trio.
