Over 30 subscribers, as tradition, for the Italian Stock 600. At Mugello there will be many riders trying to emerge, as their first success will be an important signal in view of the further rounds.
Four riders seem to be able to start as favourites, at least in the first two rounds: that is some of the protagonists of the 2012 season, as Francesco Cocco and Luca Vitali (riding the only two Suzuki of the lot), then Nicola J. Morrentino (Yamaha) and Federico Monti (from Suzuki to Yamaha Bike Center). Surprises could come from some “ex 125” as David Stirpe, with MV Agusta of Ellan Vannin Motorsport, Manuel Tatasciore, Andrea Mantovani (Yamaha) and Luca Oppedisano, riding the Kawasaki of DMR Racing Team.
There will always be two «flying» girls: Emilian Rebecca Bianchi (with the Yamaha of Clinica della Moto Team) and Alessia Polita, from Marche, riding a Yamaha managed by her father Giancarlo.
