FIM Bajas World Cup: Alessandro Ruoso the new Baja World Champion.


The "Italian Baja" victory in 2013 looks like a springing-board which allowed the biker from Porcia to jump into the fame with his Yamaha 450 of the Offroadmotors Team: Italian Alessandro Ruoso won the FIM Bajas World Cup.

Ruoso won the Italian Baja in March reaching the final line even ahead on Stephane Peterhansel, the off-road superchampion who reached the podium both by bike and by car. It was the start of a fantastic series of victories, which led him to win the World Cup. In Romania in June he reached the final line just behind Peterhansel.

In Spain in July he reached just the 4th position because of technical problems, but he seized the first step of the podium in Hungary in August, as well as in Morocco in October, assuring himself the final victory thanks to the 87 points already gained, which allowed him not to take part in the final transfer towards Portugal in November for the last race of the Championship.

This is why the rider from Venezuela Michael Berti was able to reach the second place with just 1 point difference in the overall rankings, while the German Andrea Mayer kept 64 points ahead on the Russian Dmitriy Agoshkov with 49 points and Peterhansel with 37 points, who never had the possibility to challenge the Italian rider after the Romanian race.

Who is actually Alessandro Ruoso? Well, he is simply a good guy who grew up in the suburb bound by motors, as they are part of his family DNA. His father Lino was a European Champion in the Car Slalom category, his uncle Mario won the Overall Italian Car Championship while his mother Liliane, in her free time, followed both of them as co-driver. His brother Giuliano, on the other hand, after years spent riding his bike, quit the motocross World to confirm his ability as a driver, winning the Italian Off-road Championship. His nephews Alessio and Lorenzo, respectively 4 and 9 years old, demonstrate their love for motors driving a kart and riding a quad.

The sporting history of Alessandro, who was born in Pordenone in 1981 and lives in Porcia, can be resumed as follows: He rode his first bike when he was just 3 years old, but it was later, when he was 7, that he started taking part in races. He won regional and inter-regional championships, reaching victory in the European Alpe Adria Championship riding a 80cc. He quit Minicross to win the regional Cadet Championship with a 125cc bike.

When he chose the 250cc category, he started to seriously ride, gaining the first position in the Italian and International Championships, getting the KL National title, winning the Kawasaki Championship and a Eruopean one. In 2001 he decided to represent the Martin Racing of Padua, Italian official Honda, taking part in the Italian and European Championship with the aim to face the World Cup in the following year.

Just after signing the agreement he suffered a serious accident which obliged him to get rid of his dreams and take a long break until 2006. Alessandro didn’t want to have anything to do with bikes anymore, until by accident he met Jürgen Mastrocola of the Promoto Racing, who convinced him to participate in Pitbike Italian Championship. He won it. When he came back to Merano there was a brend new Yamaha 450 4t at his disposal; it was time to ride a proper bike again.

Jürgen Mastrocola incited him “You must fight and start again from zero.” Alessandro accepted the challenge and start with the Trentino Championship; after that victory he took part in the Italian Overall Championship in 2008, facing all MX World riders. Thanks to the Promoto Racing efforts, he got good results. Because of some job’s problems and the missing of sponsors, he wasn’t unfortunately able to constantly train. This caused some interruptions in his agonistic activity until in 2012, when he happened to assist David Turchet at the Supercross International Championship.

Mastrocola lent him a bike, just to realize if he was able to ride a couple of selective laps. He was then supposed to just stay out of the tracks and watch at his friend. On the contrary, he gained all four races and seized the 7th position of the Overall Rank just because of a bad fall. It was in 2013 that Angelo Montico of the Offroadmotors proposed him to take part in the first competition of the Bajas World Cup in Pordenone and it was then that Alessandro finally reappropriate of his destiny…
