Diego Bosis

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.

He came second in the Fim World Championship twice 1987 and 1990 both times behind the Spaniard Jordi Tarres

In 1987 he rode to a fantastic Trials Des Nations win for Italy with his team mates Donato Miglio, Renato Chiaberto and Carlo Franco, in total he rode 22 times for Italy in this event.

 

At 41 years of age Diago took 4th In the Italian National Championship, 27 concecuative years averaging 2nd place , what an incredible acheivement !

 

In 2010,2011 Diego worked with the FIM trials commision designing sections for World Championship events.

Towards the end of his career he opened a trials school in Castellinaldo in the province of Cuneo


 

At the age of 44 he died on 14 February 2012 from cardiac arrest.


 

A true loss to our wonderfull sport of trials
