Diego Bosis was born on 19th October 1967 in Bergamo Italy
In 1979 when he was 12 years of age he started to compete in local trial competitions.
This was down to his father Giacomo's passion for trials and his uncle Ezio who was one of the Italian trials pioneers.
What a great start Diego had with his family so into trials, it does make a difference if you are brought up with trials bikes.
