16 September 2021Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli – Italy

We cannot deny that the arrival of the MotoGP on the Misano World Circuit is always special. The passion for the engines that we inhale in this land makes this a unique event. We also have to say that to this Grand Prix we link awesome memories!

Indeed last year our Romano got an extraordinary victory, that was meaningful. In that occasion our team leader reached again the highest spot on the podium, bringing the Husqvarna for its first time at a victory in a competition on a circuit. There are all the premises, nevertheless there is the chance to get even, after the huge misfortune in which Romano run into last weekend on the MotorLand of Aragon. Indeed he was forced to stop his comeback, with a long on the gravel, to avoid to hit one of his colleagues, who fell right in front of him. Romano, even if he found himself in the back, came back up to the fourteenth position, showing off a very fast pace and a laudable tenacity!

For what concerns Adrian, Misano represents the umpteenth debut of this 2021. In the last Grand Prix our rookie, after a good come back, reached the points for the third time this year. It will be crucial to continue on this path and to use the huge work put in place by Adrian and his Team this year.
