The 25-year old World Superbike competitor was awarded a prize by the Mayor of the city, Gianni Alemanno, for his noteworthy contribution to the world of sport and results achieved during 2009.

The ceremony, organized in order to formally recognize the sporting achievements of several Roman athletes, including Michel, racing driver Giancarlo Fisichella, footballers Daniele De Rossi, Marco Di Vaio and rugby player Giulio Toniolatti to name but a few.

The event involved an official prize-giving in the prestigious Sala Protomoteca of the Campidoglio palace, with the Mayor of Rome on hand to congratulate the award winners, alongside sports delegate Alessandro Cochi, the president of the board for culture Federico Mollicone and the president of Milan’s sports committee Riccardo Viola.

Michel was very proud to be selected for this prize while attending the ceremony along with his wife Deborah.
