This morning saw double world Motocross champion Mickael Pichon visit his new Italian based Tiscali Honda Martin outfit for the very first time (pictured).

The French former Suzuki rider spent today meeting team members and chatting with mechanics about the CRF450 he will race in the upcoming 2004 MX1 championship.

"I'm happy to be here," said Mickael. "The workshop is big and nice and everybody seems to work very hard. Everything is on my side; everything is there for me to win the World Championship!"

Pichon will stay in Italy for one week.
