“Never as in this season, with the addition of the Sprint Race on Saturday, will the psycho-physical resilience of MotoGP team members be severely challenged – says Nicola Bedin, Lifenet CEO – We will proudly stand by the Aprilia Racing team to help achieve and maintain the best performance.

“The constant on-track support of a specialised medical team was one of our goals,” confirms Massimo Rivola, CEO of Aprilia Racing. “We were able to achieve this thanks to the partnership with Lifenet. Our sport is becoming more and more demanding, not only for the riders but for all the staff on the track. Already during pre-season preparation we touched upon the expertise of Dr. Perona and his team, a real added value for our team. I am sure that during the 2023 Championship the support of Lifenet will allow us to maintain the level, also physical, required by modern MotoGP.”
“MotoGP is the most challenging motorcycle racing competition in the world. Riders and team members are called to epic feats, which are made up of small and large gestures, outside and inside the pits – concludes Franco Perona, CMO Lifenet – We will always stand by them for every eventuality, both with professionals and technologies on site, and being able to draw, if necessary, on hyper-specialized skills of international level through telemedicine.”
