The Sterilgarda Team will enter the first two rounds of the incoming Superbike season with the only Shane Byrne lined up. The team leaded by Marco Borciani has been forced to take this decision due to the current economic situation. Indeed, the Sterilgarda team has had to reorganized the project started the last year for a two-riders team with the promotion of Alex Polita to the Superbike. The management will try to make any efforts in order to line up a full-team at the first European round of the season in April at Valencia.
Marco Borciani | Team Manager: “I feel really sorry about the situation that does not allow Alex Polita to enter the first two round of the season. Unfortunately the economic scenario has cut the assistance of several sponsors who were supposed to help the team for the 2009 season. I'm really sorry for Alex, who is a talented young rider with whom I hope to again be able to work with in the future. We will try to get everything ready for the third round of the championship with two riders on track".
