That's it! The Trentino GP is underway and in a beautiful way with a great atmosphere and the victory of local rider: Alex SALVINI (I - Husqvarna)!
A large audience from all over Italy but also from Sweden, Germany and France gathered tonight at 21:30 at the Off Road Park in Pietramurata to attend the 4th Akrapovic Super Test of the season.
They were clearly not disappointed with the trip and saw a great show, exciting battles, and the suspense offered by the stars of EnduroGP with the added bonus of Alex “Rocky” SALVINI’s victory! "SALVO", with a blazing time of 1'17''65, took the official Yamaha Outsider rider Loïc LARRIEU (F - Yamaha) to the wire. Indeed, the Frenchman thought he would win his first Super Test Akrapovic of the season with an excellent time of 1'17''97...
Behind the leading pair was another Super Test specialist, Mathias BELLINO (F - Honda), who was third with a time of 1'18''33, ahead of Steve HOLCOMBE (GB - Beta), 1'18 ''44.
In the Juniors, the spectators witnessed a superb duel between Matteo CAVALLO (I - Beta Boano), 1'20''47, and his compatriot Andrea VERONA (I - TM), 1'20''48. Jack EDMONDSON (GB - Sherco) finished third in the Under 23 category while Matthew VAN OEVELEN (B - Sherco) once again made a strong impression in Youth 125cc, ahead of Dan MUNDELL (GB - Sherco) and Gerard GOMEZ (E - Sherco), making it a Sherco trio at the top of the smallest capacity class.
