Rider bio

 As for his ambition it's simple, "I want to win all the races," says he who counts Marco Simoncelli as his racing hero but also follows Ski racer Bode Miller and swimmer Michael Phelps. Not surprisingly at school he likes fitness and recreation and away from motorcycles it's swimming, cycling, diving and jogging.

"For me, 2012 was a very important experience. Being part of the Red Bull Rookies Cup was fantastic. The level of competition is very high which allows you to grow very much. In 2013, in addition to the Rookies Cup I would like to do some races in the Italian Moto3 Championship, I can't afford to do a full season. I will continue to train with my cross bike with which I'm really enjoying and hope to improve my Rookies Cup results."

"It all started when I was 6 years old," explains Stefano. "The passion was born from my family. from my father in particular. I like challenges and I'm really happy and proud to be part of the Rookies Cup"

Career Highlights

2012

13th Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. Best result 2nd in Race 2 at the Sachsenring. He made some mistakes during the year but that is certainly to be excused given his age and experience. He was certainly fast and his second year in the Cup should see him much more consistently racing towards the front of the field.
