Luke was 19 years old and a great passion for two wheels, inherited from his mother Roberta and his father Giorgio, both ex-racers. Unfortunately her life stopped on Saturday 27 May around 13, on the Cesare Battisti lakefront in Desenzano.
A straight stretch, without particular dangerous obstacles. According to witnesses, Luca has lost control of his TM SM 125 crashing into a tree, dying instantly. Father Georgewhich many know for his motorcycle introductory school Junior Motor School with Yamaha motorcycles, it was also Motorcycle collaborator for so many years.
We report some parts of an interview given to Bresciatoday after the accident:
“Luca was a really good boy. He didn’t drink, he didn’t smoke, he didn’t go to the disco, he was a person who smelled like laundry. This really shouldn’t have happened to him who was prudent, who always traveled with all the protections as we taught him, that he had perfect control of the bike. It had to happen to me, who was unconscious”.
Luca grew up among the children of the family school and, over the years, has developed good driving skills, evolved with the practice of minicross.
“Seeing him on the field so small was an indescribable emotion – continues Giorgio – He couldn’t wait to try, after all he saw me, my wife and his brother Marco on the bike since he was born and he has always shown that he has great talent”. Gallinelli also spoke about the dynamics: “There’s something that doesn’t convince me. I know about it and I went to see the road where it happened. The braking is there and the trajectory suggests that Luca has encountered an obstacle on his road, even if the Local Police and the witnesses say the opposite. My other hypothesis is that the chain fell off and therefore the rear wheel suddenly blocked. As soon as I’m allowed, I’ll go and check the bike personally. Even if I know it’s no use, my son will never be returned to me.”
To Giorgio, to his wife Roberta, to his brother Marco and to all those who loved Luca, the condolences of the editorial staff of Motociclismo go.
