Roberto Rolfo returns to Moto2 with Technomag-CIP team

Roberto Rolfo returns to Moto2 with Technomag-CIP team

The Italian rider made his return to the Moto2 class official by signing with the Swiss team for the 2012 Moto2 World Championship.

An official agreement between the Technomag-CIP team and Roberto Rolfo was signed on Tuesday, contracting the two to spend the next season together. The Italian teams up with Dominique Aegerter in his return to the Moto2 class after spending a year in World Superbike.

The team will again be fielding a Suter as they have in the past two seasons, which Rolfo helped the chassis builder develop in 2009. The experienced rider also won the Sepang GP and took a podium at Sachsenring aboard the Suter in 2010 when he was riding for the Italtrans Racing Team.

The rider from Turin is pleased to return to the World Championship with this new project:

"In 2010 we disputed the final race in Valencia Moto2 and then…things were left unfinished," said Rolfo, referring to his partnership with the Italian team that was not carried over into the 2011 season. "But you can’t leave things halfway; you fight to carry them out. And so I’m returning to Moto2 in 2012 with Technomag-CIP, a team led by Alain Bronec. I’m very happy because the team operates at a high level and has shown great professionalism over the years, working with very fast riders."

"I'm happy to be back riding a 600. It’s a motorcycle that I love and I really enjoy the high corner speeds with the bike!" continued the 31-year-old, who is currently recovering from a leg injury. "I'm getting better, my knee rehabilitation has been going well and I’m looking forward to getting back on a bike. In early December, the team will meet to plan the winter work program and work on getting set for the first race of a season that is very important to me."
