Matteo Guadagnini has accused Michele Cervellin of going against the spirit of motocross to win the Italian championship.
At the final round of the season, Cervellin (#747) lined up left of Guadagnini (#101) and Alberto Forato (#303) was on Guadagnini’s right. When the gate dropped Cervellin appears to move over on Guadagnini, leaving Guadagnini and Forato nowhere to go. Guadagnini went down and Forato smashed into the fencing.
The moment cost Guadagnini any chance of the title and he was not happy about how it played out. “Win like that or lose fair,” asked Guadagnini on Instagram. “Choice for me and many others but unfortunately not for everyone. Well, what to say, to have reached the last heat of the year at the head of the championship was already a victory, but to make me lose in this way is really shameful, unfair and against the spirit of the MOTOCROSS. Then made by a “friend” and my point of reference until a few years ago even worse. THANKS TO EVERYONE in any case.”

vincere così o perdere lealmente? Scelta scontata per me e tanti altri ma purtroppo non per tutti. Beh che dire, essere arrivato all’ultima manche dell’anno al comando del campionato era già una vittoria, ma farmelo perdere in questo modo è davvero vergognoso, scorretto e contro lo spirito del MOTOCROSS. Fatto poi da un “amico” e mio punto di riferimento fino a qualche anno fa ancora peggio. GRAZIE A TUTTI in ogni caso❤️ @team_maddiiracing @rrs_team_a.s.d @gruppo_sfide #grupposfide #mg101
