Italian fencer Granbassi meets Hayden at Mugello

Italian fencer Granbassi meets Hayden at Mugello

Former World Champions meet in Tissot watch exchange.

Italian fencing star Margherita Granbassi was a guest of honour at Mugello on Saturday, attending her second MotoGP event in the flesh. The former World Champion was not just there for enjoyment, however, as she also had a small task to undertake for Official MotoGP Timekeepers, Tissot.

Granbassi presented Gran Premio d’Italia Alice poleman Jorge Lorenzo with his Tissot watch prize for his qualifying achievement, before heading to Ducati’s hospitality area to exchange limited edition signature timepieces with rider and Tissot representative Nicky Hayden.

“I will definitely be watching more MotoGP in the future after meeting these fantastic riders,” said Granbassi. “I can really appreciate their efforts and fitness, and the atmosphere here at Mugello has been just fantastic.”
