Aprilia is Supermoto S2 World Champion - November 28th 2004

    Supermotard

    At the incredible race which brought the season to a close at Finestrat (in Spain), Aprilia and her twenty-four year-old French rider, Jerome Giraudo, brought down the house by winning the Supermotard S2 World Championship Title. Presenting themselves at the start with a seemingly insurmountable disadvantage of twenty-six points behind Massimo Verderosa riding his Honda, Aprilia's flag bearers progressively made up the difference in the space of two heats only then to conquer and win the final by surpassing all rivals, bringing themselves to the top of the classification.

    It is a victory with huge implications; not only did Aprilia take the lead from the debut, but they did it with a project decidedly innovative. For the first time ever they introduced into the category a bi-cylindrical propeller, representing a technical choice until now considered to be almost impossible.

    Champion

    "I honestly did not think it was possible to recover from such a deficit - said the rider from Nice - it makes the win even more gratifying. To triumph in a season so tightly contested from the beginning is an amazing result. When Aprilia decided to revolutionize the category by introducing a two-cylinder engine, not to mention an electronically controlled, I thought that at least a year would have to be spent for development purposes. Instead, everything worked perfectly and the results they produced only improved with time. I have to say that the technical staff did an incredible job, riding on the shoulders of Aprilia's impressive legacy in competitive races.

    For Aprilia it is the 26th world title in its history, the third off-road title after the two titles won by riders/heats of 1992 in the Trials.
