Alex Baldolini has announced he will return to the World Supersport Championship for a selection of events this season, becoming the first rider to enter a privateer MV Agusta.
After two seasons in WSS, making his debut with the Suriano Triumph team for 2012 before riding the team's Suzuki GSX-R600 entry in 2013 (following a selection of rounds on the Lorini Honda), Baldolini was left without a ride for 2014.
Nonetheless, the former WSS podium winner will embark on a return to the series aboard a privateer MV Agusta F3 under the ATK Racing banner, beginning the very next round at his home Imola event.
Currently signed up for five events due to budgetary constraints, Baldolini is excited to be getting back to racing action on a bike that has proven itself to be a front runner.
“I am delighted to announce after months of hard work behind the scenes that I will race an ex-factory MV Agusta F3 in five rounds of the 2014 World Supersport championship. I will race at Imola, Misano, Portimao, Jerez and Magny-Cours and am very excited to be riding such an iconic brand and proud to be back on an Italian bike.
“This is a new project and there is a lot to do, but we will try to use our experience to do our best and fight for better positions race by race. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible.”
