The World Championship for the 18-meter, 20-meter two-seater and Libera classes has just concluded, with excellent participation and results from the Italian team.
In the 18-meter class, two Italian pilots earn the podium with silver and bronze (R. Brigliadori and D. Schiavotto, respectively), while the Italian team earns the bronze medal in the team standings. All the other riders reach respectable positions, considering the very high level of competitors.
