During the presentation of the 2008 Italian Championship, the team that will run the official MV Agusta bikes presented it’s racing program for the upcoming season.
Thanks to the hospitality of UnionBike, a large motorcycle parts and accessories retailer who is also a historical sponsor of the team, after the successful test at Monza the team met-up with journalists at the store in Lissone near Milan, where team manager Gigi D’Esposito thanked everyone present and gave his view on the season ahead: "The basis for a positive season is there, we have a great rider, a bike directly supported by the factory and sponsors that have confirmed their support. This is the reason why I would like to thank everyone involved for what I’m sure will be a fantastic season."
Luca Scassa is raring to go: "I can’t wait to start the season, we did a great job during this last test and the bike keeps on improving. I’m very happy that in the Italian Championship the competition is fierce and that there are top-level riders, the experience gained will allow us to improve greatly, we don’t want to win easy!"
