Who is Lorenzo Savadori?
Lorenzo Savadori, 23, made his breakthrough in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, where he finished runner-up to Johann Zarco in 2007. He then moved into the 125 Grand Prix Championship but had little success.
He battled for the World Superstock 1000 title on numerous occasions before taking victory with Aprilia in 2015. That earned him a ride in the IODA squad in WSB for 2016 and, despite little to no support from Aprilia and no upgrades to the bike, he finished tenth in the series. That saw him sign a contract direct with Aprilia for 2017 as the Noale factory return with an official team in the shape of Milwaukee Aprilia.
We’ll be seeing a lot more of this guy
