New challenge for Samuele Bernardini
Samuele Bernardini, one of the most successful young Italian MX2 and MXGP cross riders of the last seasons, will be the new Honda RedMoto Lunigiana Team rider for the 2021 Enduro 2021 World Championship season and Absoluti d’Italia.
EMX300 Champion at only nineteen years old, a long stint in the MX2 World Championship and later in MXGP, Bernardini has decided to leave the Motocross world to move to Enduro in 2021 full time with the Lunigiana Honda RedMoto Team.
“I am really happy with my choice to switch to Enduro and to do so with Gianni Belloni’s team with Honda RedMoto Lunigiana Team. It wasn’t an easy decision but Belloni convinced me to take on this new challenge of his, which is a bit like mine. I think it’s a decision full of meaning that I hope will help me further grow professionally. After such a strange year like this, I think 2021 is almost like a year to start from scratch and start a new job. I’m very motivated for 2021 in the hope of facing the year with a different approach and maximum commitment”.
GIANNI BELLONI PASQUINELLI:
“I am very happy that Bernardini has chosen to race in 2021 with Honda RedMoto Lunigiana Team. We are absolutely convinced that he has a very high potential, as well as determined to face together such an important challenge for him in 2021. I believe that his speed in the race is visible to everyone, but for me it’s not just that: professionalism and dedication are not aspects to be underestimated and I’m sure they will lead Bernardini to the results he deserves and hopes for. Together we’ll have the right experience in perfect conditions with a line-up of Honda-RedMoto CRF RX Enduros whose displacement and class we’ll choose by the end of January, so we can look forward to 2021 with great results”.
