Hall of Fame: it’s time for Pier Paolo Bianchi

One of the greats of Italian motorcycle racing took to the stage during today’s Pole Position prize-giving. Pier Paolo Bianchi, three times world 125 champion enters the CIV Hall of Fame thanks to three national titles won between 1975 and 1980 with Morbidelli and MBA machines. “Everything has changed since my day and there is no comparison, but today when I came back to the paddock, I felt exactly as I used to when I raced. Today’s young riders? They are faster than us, also because things have come a long way in terms of safety. Money counts at the start of your career, but the most important thing is talent. Without that you don’t go anywhere.”
