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
