Highlighting Alvaro’s more important events in FMX: Dubai and Glen Helen (USA) for the X-Fighters, and Foz de Iguacu (BRA) for the X-games (either as a judge or support for Bianconcini). Alve last weekend flew to Barcelona to work on another leg of the X-Games.
Alve’s role as a judge at the X-Fighters is new for 2013, and confirmation of the professionalism achieved by Alvaro in this field.
In one of his rare free moments Alve, thanks to Riki and Marzio from the S.Martino del Lago circuit and to Alpinestars, had the opportunity to try a little “adrenaline rush”, this time in a car, along with his friend Maurizio "Icio" Poggiana.

TV media and magazines
In the May issue of X Off Road Alvaro reports on Massimo Bianconcini and Libor Podmol’s training session for the X-games at DaBoot Superpark, Lentiai (BL). The magazine’s May issue devotes entire pages to FMX, including stories on Andre Viila and Dany Torres, as well as a report on the Red Bull X-Fighters in Dubai, writtenby Alvaro.
The DaBoot Superpark appears on the EXPN website complete with video gallery which focuses on Libor Podmol and Bianconcini, along with local riders Leonardo Fini, Maurizio Poggiana, Davide Rossi and Matteo Botteon.
Young Matthew Botteon from Belluno along with Kevin Ferrari have been busy for over a week at FlicFlac Exxtrem in Duisburg, Germany. They’re due back home early June, but until then they’re strutting the Italian style in daily shows.
After several weeks at FlicFlac Exxtrem, Leonardo Fini and Davide Rossi, have already returned home to train and begin their summer season of shows. Last Saturday they were together with Mauritius Poggiana in Mirabello (FE), to take part in a fundraising event for the reconstruction of the area after the earthquake which hit in May 2012. Da Boot had an even bigger incentive to lend a hand with the earthquake relief effort, seeing that their official mechanic, Lorenzo Magnoni lives over there and was put to the test by the earthquake.
Let's take a look at snowmobiling news: Jason Cesco is making the most of the remaining snow at his home, in the Dolomites, in an intense session of freeriding. However Cesco’s training doesn’t stop with summer time, as he begins major workouts in the DaBoot Superpark, as he prepares to be in perfect shape for "The Jambo", in Bologna in mid-June.
Alve’s commitments are set to continue at a rapid pace:
On the 24th and 25th May in Hamburg, Germany, Alvaro is a judge at a round of the IFMXF World Championship (new judging techniques will be tested). Recovering from his wrist injury in Foz de Iguacu, Bianconcini will be helping out as assistant judge.
The Osaka stage of the Red Bull X-Fighters will be on the following weekend, Alvaro of course will be there and the event is dedicated to the memory of the late Eigo Sato.
