MAMOLA’S ELE­PHANT PROB­LEMS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Poor Randy Mamola’s path to vic­tory al­ways seemed to be splat­tered in cow­pats from the Devil’s own sa­tanic herd, and 1988 was no dif­fer­ent. The then world Num­ber 2 sat it out at Jarama due to con­cerns over the per­for­mance of his beau­ti­ful – but flawed – Ca­giva. “Pirelli, my­self and Ca­giva need more time to get things sorted out,” he said in a rare moment of diplo­macy, be­fore jump­ing on a plane to Varese to thrash out the team’s prob­lems with the Castiglioni broth­ers.
