Giancarlo Falappa

I've got a basic inquiry :

In case some of you have pics of this tremendous Ducati pilot, please don't hesitate to send them ...
I saw him for the first time in 1991.
Thanks to him, I discovered Ducati and more especially 851/888.

Together with Polen and Roche, they built an important part of Ducati story, IMHO.

I rely on you ...

He's a legend and Ducati look after him very well - he's always at the WSB rounds and is always really friendly at the "Meet the Team" nights.

He gives out cool stickers and likes the ladies too

You can find few on the net...

Was a great rider and is a good man..he is always around the Ducati factory and if you guys are going to visit the factory the chances to meet him are not few..
In Italy was done for gone, after 1994 in Albacete crash.. most believed that he would have died..but he fought as he was fighting every race and may be luck, may be something else..he made it. His nickname was the lion...
