The 2018 International Bridgestone Handy Race
Take 3 important and challenging international motorcycle circuits. Then add some determined and passionate disabled riders: and here it is the 2018 International Bridgestone Handy Race.
Organized thanks to the collaboration between FIM (Fédération International de Motocyclisme), Handi Free Riders and Diversamente Disabili with the support of the FFM (Fédération Française de Motocyclisme) and the FMI (Federazione Motociclistica Italiana), the 2018 edition of the Handy Race was full of emotions and surprises.
This year it all started in Le Mans, France, in May. There, Peter Rohr and DERWID got on track together for the first time. Riding his Yamaha YZF-R1-Yamaha Racing, Peter earned the 3rd place.
At the end of August at Mugello Circuit, Italy, Peter won the second round of the Handy Race: with the best lap during the race, he now holds the new 1000cc Paralympic record in Mugello.
And on Saturday in Magny-Cours Peter gave us new emotions, cutting the finish line first 18 seconds ahead of the second classified. Thanks to this victory, Peter won the 2018 Bridgestone Handy Race World Champion title.
DERWID is proud of his success and of supporting his dream to come true.
Congratulations to Peter Rohr for his success
Only 3 years after the big crash with his motorbike, where he lost the use of his left arm, Peter’s dream comes true.
He has faced all adversities head-on, always looking on the bright side and keeping in mind the final goal to be achieved. Thank to his willpower, his courage and humanity, Peter raced with passion and hearth and today he is Handy Race World Champion.
Congratulations for your world title Peter! Grab your chance!
