Triumph ParkinGO: Race Results Monza

Race Report

When two fight, the third one takes the prize… and it was Michael Mazzina. Round three of the ParkinGO European motorcycle racing series was without a doubt the most spectacular, also because it took place in front of 115,000 motorcycling fans who turned up at the track for the first Superbike round held in Italy.

Fabrizio Perotti, Giuliano Rovelli and Michael Mazzina battled for victory from lap one, during which Perotti unfortunately crashed.

Rovelli and Mazzina continued their duel exchanging the lead many times. In the last lap, Rovelli seemed to have built a small advantage but the rider/team manager lost control of the machine entering Variante Ascari and crashed.

Mazzina won the race, Franco Zenatello finished second, Matteo Marzotto took third place, who passed "lady" De Nardi in the final sprint.

Michael Mazzina says: "Racing in front of this crowd was an undescribable feeling. I had a lot of fun, the feeling with the bike improved since Monday. Rovelli rode a great race, I’m sorry for him, I would’ve preferred to battle for the win until the very end".

Franco Zenatello says: "I made a very good start and took second place at the first corner. Then I had some trouble changing gears which slowed me down and lost control with the front runners. I’m very happy with this podium, I’m sorry for Giuliano Rovelli and Perotti who both crashed".

Matteo Marzotto says: "I was lucky to finish on the podium. It felt great to raise the trophy in front of the Monza crowd, but I’m sorry for Rovelli and Perotti. They were faster than me and deserved it just as much as me if not more".
