Ongetta Rivacold team launch

Ongetta Rivacold team launch

Niccolò Antonelli and Jules Danilo head to Italy to reveal their 2016 colours.

On Friday the 22nd of January the Motorbike Expo will be theatre for the official presentation of the Ongetta Rivacold Racing Team. The team and the riders, Niccolò Antonelli and Jules Danilo, will show the new livery of the Honda 250.

The two riders of the Ongetta Rivacold Racing Team will meet press and supporters before the first winter test, on the 11th and 12th February in Valencia. Antonelli comes back to the Motor Bike Expo after four years. In 2012, the year of his launch in the World Championship, the young rider from Cattolica received an award for the first position in the Italian Championship 2011 125 GP and several other awards. Antonelli comes back now to the Verona exhibition after having become a protagonist of the Moto3™ class: fifth at the end of the season, he gained two amazing wins in Czech Republic and Japan, two third places and two pole positions. There are lots of expectations on him, including an exciting championship as trust and his maturity have developed in the past season definitely set him in a strong position. In his second consecutive year with the Honda of the Ongetta Rivacold Racing Team, Jules Danilo is out for more. In the past Championship he finished in the top fifteen in different races and, this year, he has all the potential to stay there constantly. Both riders are looking forward to starting to ride again after the winter break.

Niccolò Antonelli: "This is my second time at the Motor bike Expo, I came here four years ago before starting the World Championship and I am happy to come back again this year and meet supporters, We are waiting for first tests in order to start working and be ready for the first race. I have to say that recovery time for the problems I had at my shoulder seems to be a bit longer but I am working hard to be physically good, start training and be real".

Jules Danilo: "It will be my first time at the Motor Bike Expo and stay in contact with the fans, in the right environment, it's always nice. Obviously I can not wait to get back on track after the winter break. During this time I have called a program of preparation for the season. I have been training in a sports center near Barcelona to work on my weak points, both physically and mentally, and get prepared for the first test in Valencia".
