The team’s riders for the new 2021 season were presented on the day of the first round of the Internazionali d’Italia Motocross Championship in Riola Sardo.
The collaboration between Fantic Motor and the historical Tuscan team captained by Marco and Corrado Maddii continues. All riders of the Fantic Factory Team Maddii Racing have been presented and for this season they will take part in the European MX Championships.
Marco Maddii: “We are very happy and proud to present the 2021 team with the official support of Fantic. The company is doing its utmost to support us on everything our team needs. Our challenge in the 250 class is ambitious, we want to be the protagonists with the 2t and we are all motivated to do our best. The team is made up of young and very strong riders. Lapucci and Osterhagen can be protagonists and try to compete for the top positions in both the European and Italian championship. Max Spies will try to do well in the EMX250 and in the Adac championship, Federico will be among the best in the 250 2-stroke. Matteo Russi and Pietro Salina will work to improve and seek good results.”
Nicholas Lapucci is the new addition to the team; the strong Tuscan rider has already shone on his Fantic in the last two rounds of the European Championship in Arco di Trento last season.
Nicholas Lapucci and Maximilian Spies will be deployed in the EMX250, Lapucci and Spies will ride the 2-stroke Fantic XX 250, where they will challenge the 4-strokes.

After the great victory in the European 125 Championship of 2020, Corrado and Marco Maddii have decided to bet on two young riders: Hakon Osterhagen and Matteo Russi.
