Bikers'Festival Wayne Gardner to pay tribute to the career of Didier de Radiguès
Among the highlights of the 1st Bikers’Festival organised by DG Sport over the weekend of 12th and 13th August, the exhibition paying tribute to Didier de Radiguès’ victory some 40 years later in the Grand Prix de Belgique 250cc on the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, will naturally include the presence of the Belgian rider, who had become a commentator and TV presenter, and now a creative photographer.
But that’s not all! Another major personality of motorbike Grand Prix, the Australian Wayne Gardner, has also confirmed his presence to pay tribute to the career of de Radiguès. Now aged 63, Gardner spent his career in the premier category (500cc) with the Rothmans Honda team. Following a first victory in 1986 on the Spanish Jarama circuit, he clinched the world title one year later, winning on seven occasions. Having teamed up with Randy Mamola and Mick Doohan, he ended his sporting career on two-wheels in 1992, with 18 Grand Prix to his name. He was inducted into the MotoGP Legends in 2002.
Wayne Gardner’s presence alongside Didier de Radiguès will add an additional dash of prestige to an event that will also welcome renowned champions of the calibre of Giacomo Agostini and Michael Dunlop!
As from the very first edition of the Bikers’Festival, DG Sport has set the bar very high, with more than ever the ambition of making this event a ‘biker’s paradise … See you in Spa!
