Giovanni Burlando’s Vision

Hat tip to Pikes Peak motorcycle champion, Eric Piscione, who shared this incredible video. Here is what Eric posted on FB in regard to the piece:

Waouu Giovanni, un homme immense, une humilité à la hauteur de son talent.
75 ans et encore très alerte sur une moto. Quand il parle moto il a les yeux qui pétillent, j’adore ce genre de gars  il me fait penser à mon défin Grand Père “Marcel Piscione”. Un génie de la mécanique et passionné .
Très belle vidéo. J’en ai la larme a l’oeil

Google translate: Wow Giovanni, a man immense, humility to live up to its talent.
75 years old and still very alert on a motorcycle. When he spoke moto he has the eyes that pétillent, I love this kind of guy. It makes me think of my défin grand father ‘ marcel piscione ‘. A genius of mechanics and passionate.
Very beautiful video. It brought a tear to my eye.


Vimeo Description:  The story of hills race told by Giovanni Burlando: 75 years old and about 850 contests raced with some of the best racers in the world such as Agostini and Pasolini. And then his workshop and his motorbikes: Ducati 250, Benelli 250, Aletta 125 and Motobi 250, each of them fixed by himself alone. Riding on the Doria-Creto path he tells about prizes, contests and his overwhelming passion for motorbikes.

Although she knew nothing about motorsports at that time, the chance meeting would influence her passion for all things fast, great stories and interesting people.
