[mk_blockquote style=”line-style” ]Winning an important tittle as Basile did just do, does not leave much to comment. He has done a great job. Basile was with us in Lanzarote at our winter training and I had seen him very solid at the training. He has a lot of potential to do also well against the top pro riders at the PWA, and that will now be his next step in May. Well done to his dad, Olivier, who has supported Basile in the right way!
