  1. FORMER Italian Superbike Champion, World Supersport Champion and World Superbike runner-up Fabrizio Piravano has died aged 56.


    ‘Piro’ from Biassono in Lombardy, Italy, lost his battle against an incurable tumour on June the 12th.

    The Italian moved from the Italian Superbike Chmpionship – which he won four times – to be a top contender in the early days on the Superbike World Championship, but that title would elude him. He finished runner-up in 1990 but moved to the Sueprsport class later, winning the title in 1998.

    After retiring from racing he worked in race team management.

    A much-loved racer and Italian larrikin, Pirovano wil be missed by all who knew him.
