Pecco Bagnaia still doesn’t believe it

On Monday Pecco Bagnaia and Andrea Verona were awarded the Golden Collar of CONI. “When I can take a break from all the commitments, I will understand what I have done. Behind the results of the pilot there are many people who are strongly committed. It’s a great team effort,” said the Ducati centaur. Malagò then recalled that Bagnaia and the Ducati team will be received on Wednesday by the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, an occasion at which IMF President Giovanni Copioli will be present.

Andrea Verona won the overall title of the EnduroGP World Championship this year. The last Italian to do so was Giò Sala in 1998. Verona also boasts in his palmares three consecutive E1 world championships, the Six Days 2021 and numerous youth titles including the 2018 Six Days Junior Trophy. “The passion for Enduro was born thanks to my father,” said the Pata Talento Azzurro FMI. “It all started as a game, for fun but going forward I was getting prestigious results and with time I was able to reach these levels.”

Giovanni Copioli, FMI President, wanted to applaud the two champions in this way, “Bagnaia and Verona respectively represent speed and off-road so, ideally, all motorcycling sport. I am very happy that two young riders of their caliber were able to collect the Collar of Gold: they are athletes with strong, healthy values who give a great image of motorcycling. Never over the top, they make passion and commitment the basis for the results they achieve. For our sport they are very positive figures. As the Italian Motorcycling Federation we will continue our work aimed at training and growing talents and continue to be present, as has been the case for years now, at the CONI Golden Collars Ceremony.”
