Four MotoAmerica Twins Cup riders traveled to Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello in Scarperia e San Piero, Tuscany, Italy, earlier this week to compete in round two of the Aprilia Racing Trofeo. Held in conjunction with the Italian CIV Championship, the Aprilia Racing Trofeo is a spec race series where the entrants compete aboard identically prepared Aprilia RS 660 twin-cylinder motorcycles.

Californian Max Toth won Saturday’s race one over Italian riders Giuseppe De Gruttola in second and Lorenzo Sommariva, who completed the podium in third.

2021 MotoAmerica Twins Cup Champion Kaleb De Keyrel finished fourth and just off the podium in the race, and the Minnesotan recorded the fastest lap of the race on his fourth circulation during the eight-lap event.

MotoAmerica paddock physician Dr. Carl Price, who is a veteran Twins Cup rider, brought his Aprilia RS 660 home in 11th place, while fellow MotoAmerica Twins Cup competitor Gino Angella, who usually competes aboard a Yamaha FZ-07/MT-07 in the U.S,, tried his hand at an Aprilia RS 660 and finished 13th in Saturday’s race one.

Race two of the Aprilia Trofeo from Mugello Circuit will commence tomorrow at 10:45 a.m. local time.
