Andrea Dovizioso:
"It 's an honor to participate in th is initiative. We are lucky because we have turned our passion for the sport into a job. By donating my leather suit I have the opportunity today to contribute to a socially useful project that identifies an educational tool in sport to reach the most disadvantaged children. Sport has played an important role in my growth. I got the first bike when I was 4 years old and since then have not yet stopped, from 6 to 13 years I also played football. Sport is a significant component of my life. I'm happy to be able to help the children in Brazil with Inter Campus".
