FIM Europe at the première of the docu-film “Goals – The invisible strength”

Yesterday in Rome the docu-film “Goals – The invisible strength” was presented to media: it tells the real stories of three “special” riders – the European Champion Nicola Dutto from Italy, his compatriot Emiliano Malagoli and Australian Alan Kempster. All of them are disabled after a motorcycle accident, but they have come back riding on the two wheels, and at international levels. Malagoli and Kempster – both amputees, are going to race on Saturday 20th May on the French circuit of Le Mans, the day before MotoGP, and Dutto – paraplegic – is preparing to race the next edition of Dakar in South America.

The docu-film has been written and directed by FIM Europe press officer Fiammetta La Guidara with the photography of sports tv director Mauro Valentinuzzi and aims to underline how passion and strong will can overcome the severe difficulties of disability.
A the première in Rome Silvio Manicardi, FIM Europe Second Deputy President, was present. Among the special guests, the Italian actor Max Giusti – who is also a motorcyclist and a motocross rider and races for KTM. He spoke on behalf of Nicola Dutto, who is a KTM rider, too, and who could not attend the première because he was coming back from Afriquia Merzouga Rally, being the only paraplegic rider to finish the desert marathon.

“It is striking how the human willpower to react to adversities allows to overcome barriers which may seem insuperable”, stated Silvio Manicardi. “FIM Europe congratulates with the author for the realization of this docu-film, which shows also great sensibility towards this  subject matter”.
FIM Europe gave its patronage to “Goals – The invisible strength” to support its solidarity message.
