New experiences to discover the territory It will also be possible to combine a visit to the Ducati Museum and the educational laboratory with the new “experiences” that the Ducati Museum staff offers visitors. These are options, in any case related to the visit of the Museum and of Fisica in Moto, which are divided into two types of proposals that aim to discover the history, tradition and beauty of the Emilia-Romagna area of which Ducati is one of the most representative brands. The proposed itineraries can be done in one day, visiting Bologna riding one of the new Ducati e-bikes, accompanied by E-xplora guides certified by the National MTB Academy. Or by motorbike, divided over several days, independently but with the possibility of following an expressly designed itinerary, renting a Ducati to travel in the beauty of the Apennine landscape or experience the Romagna Riviera, reaching it through alternative roads and routes that can be enjoyed on the bike. Here are the proposals: 1. E-bike: Bologna by E-xplora – a short and a longer tour to visit the city centre of Bologna, its historical monuments and the Bolognese hills on a Ducati Scrambler e-bike in one day. In both tours visitors will be accompanied by an E-xplora certified National MTB Academy guide. The cost of the city centre tour is € 65, with the city centre and Bologna hills tour € 85, Ducati Scrambler e-bike rental and guide included. For those who so desire, there is also an opportunity to have lunch at the Ducati Scrambler Food Factory in Bologna. 2. Motorbike: Mid-Reno and Savena Valley – a perfect route for a motorbike tour, to discover the ancient history of the Bolognese Apennines and its waters along two legendary roads: the “Porrettana” and the “Futa”. From the Ducati Museum, in fact, you can easily take the “Porrettana”, the road between Bologna and Pistoia built in the crucial years of our country, between the wars that brought about the independence and the unification of Italy. To be done independently or by renting a motorcycle at the Ducati Factory Store (price list for motorcycle and clothing rental on the Ducati website). 3. Motorbike: The Stradelli Guelfi. From the Middle Ages to the origins of Romagna motorcycling, from Baracca and Taglioni, to Cervia and Cesenatico, the origins of the Mototemporada Romagnola – the Stradelli Guelfi route represents an intelligent alternative to go to the seaside, avoiding the daily summer traffic heading for the destinations of the Romagna Riviera and retracing the roads that tell the origins of motorcycling in the region. An authentic example of a “slow ride”, the Stradelli cover the stretch of Romagna that arrives at the Riviera of Ravenna, immersed in the colourful countryside. To be done independently or by renting a motorcycle at the Ducati Factory Store (price list for motorcycle and clothing rental on the Ducati website). To learn more about the stages of the different routes go on the Ducati website.

Hayden Schultz returned to the MotoAmerica Podium for the first time in 5 Years at Road America. The last spot for the podium was decided after a thrilling battle that saw up to 6 riders swapping positions over the 8 lap race. In the end it was Schultz that came out on top after a draft pass to the finish line. After a first round that saw the team resort to a stock motor for the races after a technical issue, a trip to the podium was helpful in jumpstarting the teams 2020 campaign. Schultz said “I’m excited to see all the hard work from my team and myself start to show some results. After such a great battle with a group of fast guys it feels incredible to come out with a podium. I had a plan for the last lap and thought it was out the door after nearly highsiding coming out of turn 5. Thankfully, I was able to battle back and put myself in the position I wanted to be in. Coming out of the last corner I felt good about the drive and knew we had a shot and getting into 3rd by the line. I’m so happy for my team. Gene Burcham, Ron “Dink” Glidden, Gary Jeffries, and Michael Burcham have been putting in countless hours back at the shop and my program and this result would not have been possible without them. This is only my fourth time on a road race bike in the last 2 years and the second time on this race bike so I know we can improve and close the gap to the very front. I’m ready to get to some more technical tracks where I think we can do better and fight for wins.” The team is headed back to the race shop to make more progress with the race bike and get ready for the next round at Road Atlanta where they will be joined by a second rider. Hayden Schultz Racing would like to thank their sponsors that make the season possible: Brittenum Construction, Law Tigers, Dreyer Motorsports, Robem Engineering, Glidden Racing, aRacer USA, Wossner Pistons, Full Spectrum Power, 6D Helmets, RS Taichi USA, Moto Liberty, Blud Lubricants, Ohlins USA, Gene Burcham, Gary Jeffries, Shundi Self-Storage

Yamaha and Van der Mark to Part Company at Conclusion of 2020 WorldSBK Season Yamaha and Michael van der Mark will part ways at the end of the 2020 FIM Superbike World Championship season, with the 27-year-old Dutch rider opting to take on a new challenge in 2021. Van der Mark’s departure brings to a close a four-year partnership that has so far brought three WorldSBK race wins and two victories at the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hour race. Van der Mark joined the Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Official Team in 2017 and twice finished on the podium during his debut season. The following year saw the Dutch rider secure his first WorldSBK race win, and Yamaha’s first since returning to the championship in 2016, with victory in Race 1 at Donington Park. Van der Mark doubled up with a win in the following day’s Race 2 and, with eight additional podium finishes over the course of the season, ended the year third in the championship standings. The former FIM Supersport World Champion added to his win tally in 2019 with victory in Race 2 at Jerez but was sidelined by injury in the following round at Misano following a crash in free practice. Despite missing out at Misano and riding injured at the following two rounds, Van der Mark racked up eight podium finishes in 2019 to end the season fourth in the championship standings. The Pata Yamaha rider was a contender for the win in all three races at the opening round of the 2020 season in Australia but was unfortunate to miss out on the chance to add to his podium tally. Since the Phillip Island round, racing has been suspended due the coronavirus pandemic, but Van der Mark will return to action next month, with the WorldSBK season set to resume with back-to-back races in Jerez and Portimão. Both Yamaha and Van der Mark head into the rescheduled 2020 season determined to end their successful four-year collaboration on a high note, by battling for race wins and, ultimately, challenging for the World Championship title.
