This competition is a combination of total race time and trick scores where two riders at the time duel for two laps.

Dainese lo scorso fine settimana ha partecipato alla Sea Otter Classic, la più grande manifestazione ciclistica ed esposizione aperta al pubblico del Nord America. Presso il circuito di Laguna Seca era esposta la nuova collezione 2012 di biciclette e tutti gli appassionati hanno avuto la possibilità di osservare direttamente i nuovi prodotti.

Dainese in tale occasione era presente anche per sostenere tutti gli atleti della squadra. Il Freerider professionista Paul Basagoitia ha conquistato il terzo posto nella competizione denominata Speed and Style dopo un'entusiasmante gara testa a testa con Tyler McCaul. In questa disciplina il punteggio è attribuito in base al tempo totale della gara e a quello derivante dai trick ed essa consiste in un vero e proprio duello su due giri tra due contendenti alla volta.

Anche Mitch Delfs, atleta che gareggia in Coppa del mondo, ha fatto la sua comparsa presso lo stand Dainese per chiacchierare con i membri della squadra e il suo nuovo kit Dainese faceva una bella figura. Lo scorso weekend Delfs ha gareggiato nelle specialità Dual Slalom e Downhill.

Kyalami, Sunday 22sd April

Chris Leeson miraculously escaped serious injury when he crashed his national superbile seires Ducati 1199 Panigale run by RACE! South Africa during testing at Kyalami at the weekend.

Coming into turn 1 at full racing speed, Chris just lost the front end and the bike somersaulted itself to destruction.

"We'd been battling to get the gearing right during the test," esplained Chris. "On my previous bikes, when you hit the rev-limiter, It knocks off the power and pulls the front end down, giving more grip. The Ducati doesn't like sitting on the limiter so much so we had geared it to stay below that limit. As the front end went light, it stayed light and I lost it." Despite bruising, Chris was able to walk away and will be ok for this weekned's race in PE, largely thanks to the performance of his Dainese redline double zipper leathers.

"The bike's a total write-off," said team owner, Marco Casciani, "All we can salvage is the engine which we will keep as a spare. But we are busy building up the spare bike - in fact, It's almost finished - and we will definitely be in PE for round three of the National Superbike series.

"This is racing and these things happen, but you prepare for them and we will be ready for PE. We are just thankful that Chris is alright; he's been checked out by the doctors and has been passed fit to race on Saturday and will continue to take the fight to the opposition as he has all season."

by Nico Cereghini

Finalmente in pista! Si riprende dalle luci del Qatar, dove Stoner è lo sceicco. Però Valentino, che ha vinto nel 2010 con la Yamaha, adesso è fiducioso: la Ducati può arrivare in alto e crescerà. Occhio a Lorenzo, comunque, e alla nuova Moto3 con giovani talenti.
