The history of Bergamo Motorcycling Club is a subject that has been widely dealt with but, nonetheless, we believe it is interesting to propose it again as plunging in such a glorious past, as the Bergamo’s one, is always fascinating. Now, 61 years have gone through since when the Bergamo Motorcycling Club has been officially registered into the Italian Motorcycle Register, but it was actually created few years earlier: as a matter of fact the Bergamo motorcycling did first appear on 1919. At that time Italy was coming back to life after the terrible world war. Motorcycling marked its hard start back on difficult roads tormented by deep holes, dust and stones. The years of the war testing ground, with its very hard work conditions, were rich of turmoil. At that time all motorcycles had Italian names: GARELLI – BENELLI – BIANCHI – BORGO – BUCHER – ZEDA – DELLA FERRERA – FONGRI – FRERA – GILERA MAFFEIS – STUCCHI. There were the men and the competitions that now we look at through the coat and the respect of nostalgia: the North-South raid with the brave Miro Maffeis, Isacco Mariani, Pierino Maggi, Mario Acerboni…..The Motorcycle Federation was very active too, it was lead by a really great president: Engineer Alberto Bonacossa. In such a roaring climate there is a group of Bergamo motorcycle fans who creates what will become few years later the most important motorcycling club of Italy: the promoter was Arnaldo Nè, the godfather was Paolo Serafini. The Motorcycling Club Bergamo (year 1919) moved its first steps with some tourist tours and competitions such as the Bergamo-San Vigilio, won by Sestini on Indian. It was than immediately clear which was its way of living: a way that will have been marking all the events of this club: the technique cannot progress without more serious tests, the more difficult the obstacles, the more useful the competitions. During that first period, which was full of activities, there were a lot of sportsmen that gave a strong propulsion to the motorcycling sport: Luigi Chiorda, Ceccco Ruggeri, Grazioli, Crippa, Aldo Dall’Ara… But let’s jump forward to the year 1925. At that time Italian roads were run by motorcycles of 164 different brands, 85 were Italian and 79 were foreigner. And manufacturers were starting to produce with a “conscience” for exhaust silencers. The ANCMA, in accordance with its programme of pushing the motorcycle progress, did indeed care about the noise effect. A contest for the most efficient silencer was organised, there were no mentioning of phon and decibel yet, and no phonometers existed at the time, but the mentality was beforing our time. The Moto Club Bergamo was full sails, its headquarter was the Caffè Savoia, than the members moved to the Duse and its president was a great sport man: Angelo Gnecchi. The first period of the Motorcycling Club life happily ended in 1929, with the first title as Italian Champion that goes to Ugo Rocca. Later, with Luigi Piccinelli as president, the Club acquires importance and recognition thanks to its participation to many meetings: Rosa in Winter, Sanremo, Alba Torino, Pasubio and Grotte di Postumia. The first champions appear: as Egidio Picozzi, the first from Bergamo to participate to the International Six Days, Paganoni, Puppo, Fornani e Cesani. Towards the end of the 20s the headquarter was moved to the Caffè Dondena, than to the Moro and later to the Donizetti and the first show for Cycle and motorcycle took place. We are now at the 30s. At the helm of the Club was geometra Buizza, while amongst its members there were important historic pilots: Massimo Masserini, Marcello Tura, Rovaris, Raccagni, Priamo, Puppo…..In the competition world the famous Pietro Tarufi, with its Rondine 4 cylinders, broke the 500 world record, on the KL at 244,316 kilometres per hour. Omobono Tenni was the idol of the crowds. But Bergamo people was not just looking: pilots were asserting themselves and organizations were becoming more and more important, that was the time when the “Circuito delle Mura” and the “Circuito Città di Bergamo” were created. The Club was defining itself, its philosophy is a true school: “we competed – Marcello Tura remembers – we worked, we suffered and we learned how to live” Passion was dominating everything. Its leaders were, after Piccinelli, Dr. Giangrande and Bruno Stoppani, with these two Presidents the pre-war period gets to its end. Everything starts back after the end of Second World War. Old and new members answer to the call. The headquarter is at the Caffè Donizetti, and the provisory President is Franco Broletti.
In 1946 Mino Baracchi, man of great character, few words but a lot of action, becomes president. The “Circuito delle Mura” and the “Città di Bergamo” start back. In 1948 the first branch is created: Ponte Nossa, a branch deeply wanted by Giacomo Manzoni, who gave so much to the Italian regularity. Today his son Felice goes on with his father’s goal; the person changed but the passion and the faith still stay the same. New sections arrive: Lovere, Gandino and Albino, led respectively by Dino Angioletti, Geremia Anesa and Franco Acerbis. 1948 was the year of the first Valli Bergamasche (Bergamo Valleys), which originally started as a middle way between a tour and a competition and than became so famous to beat all other competitions. Whoever says Valli Bergamasche tells of a wonderful fairy tale with a lot of fantastic characters: Fulvio Maffettini, with his tracks where one had to suffer but could meet poetry, Massimo Masserini, Marcello Tura, Amelio Peri, the irreplaceable pillar-secretary that went along with the Club’s glorious way. And again Luigi Gualdi, Carlo Blumer, Luciano Dall’Ara, Gianfranco Saini, Nino Tagli, the Poles, the Germans with their impossible but fascinating names. The Valli was born for them too. In 1950 Mino Baracchi left the Club and Carlo Mazza took his place, “a lovely and lively manager“ says Fulvio Maffettini. Than from 1953 to 1960 it’s Giuseppe Reda’s turn to lead the Club. Reda was focused on information and was the first to run the Club in a modern way. It’s worth reminding that he, pushed by Camillo Sani, father of G.Franco and Eugenio, published an interesting booklet titled “How riders must ride” written by Professor Severo Pasinetti: teacher and man of high culture and humanity and father of the famous Titta, actually editor at Montanelli’s newspaper. Titta Pasinetti wrote amusing, charming, very good articles on motorcycling at the end of the 70s and, I believe, the most beautiful piece ever written on the Valli Bergamasche. But let’s go back to the leaflet written by Pasinetti the father, in cooperation with the Road Police Captain A.Guarino, a booklet rich of suggestions and information that was printed in 5000 copies. A lot of events took place those years: let’s name the Exhibition of Cycle and Motorcycle which took place at the Donizzetti theatre: Franco Acerbis. 1948 was the year of the first Valli Bergamasche (Bergamo Valleys), which originally started as a middle way between a tour and a competition and than became so famous to beat all other competitions. Whoever says Valli Bergamasche tells of a wonderful fairy tale with a lot of fantastic characters: Fulvio Maffettini, with his tracks where one had to suffer but could meet poetry, Massimo Masserini, Marcello Tura, Amelio Peri, the irreplaceable pillar-secretary that went along with the Club’s glorious way.

A lot of events took place those years: let’s name the Exhibition of Cycle and Motorcycle which took place at the Donizzetti theatre: true and personal note. With Lucio Rota’s presidency, from 1974 to 1981, Bergamo eventually opened a chapter that had already been started: trial got a big push forward thanks to Lucio. (On 24 and 25 June 1983 the Club put on the air an international competition in Castione della Presolana that was named “Trofeo Lucio Rota” valid as the 8th test for the world trial championship). On its agonistic side, the Bergamo Club got in his ranks big champions like Carletto Ubbiali, Giacomo Agostini, Arnaldo Farioli and a lot of such pilots that today form the world top class. Tullio Masserini was named president of the Bergamo Club on 1981. He run all his life under the mark of motorcycles, whom he dedicated himself since when he was fourteen, first on the agonistic side with worldwide results, than on the organisational side. His profound knowledge and his passion for Enduro makes him one of the most appreciated technicians. He kept the presidency just for the time he needed to find the ideal president: professor Ribolla that Masserini brought into the Club so as to have a new kind of management. All the Bergamo sportsmen that have fed the Bergamo Club activity with their passion do deserve a mention here. Now the Motorcycling Club lives his Eighties under the guide of Luigi Ribolla. Torments, honours and sacrifices were made but the first supporters, “adventurous people”, were now gone…. What happened was important and if somebody left us and we miss them, Gino Reguzzi, Camillo Saini, Bepi Boschi, we still keep their teaching, their models, their names impressed in our minds as flags. In this piece we have underlined the historical material that might be less known. We have looked for the unexpected anecdotes that might be nonetheless important for the widening passion of the Bergamo people.
The Moto Club Bergamo has been on the stage of sport motorcycling for 91 year both on local, national and international fields. It was founded on 1919 and with its 2000 members (450 of which are licensed pilots) it’s the European leading Motorcycling club for its number of members and does not fear any comparison for what regards its sport activities and the results obtained. Its headquarters are in via Carnovali n°84 in Bergamo, and it counts 23 sections spread out on all Bergamo province and it is proud to be one of the most prestigious club thanks to its 24 speed titles conquered with Carlo Ubbiali and Giacomo Agostini, and to the two world titles of super bike got with Californian Fred Merkel and thanks to more than 100 Italian titles and tens of European titles and more than one hundred gold medals won in the various editions of the Six Days International of Enduro The road followed by the Club to reach such superior goals was not easy. The organisation of the first group of Bergamo motorcycle fan dates back to 1914 and five years later the Club was founded. It was than lead by Paolo Serafini. A spectacular speed competition, from downtown up to the old town, was than organized and Dino Sestini won it riding an “Indian”. After the compulsory stop due to the Big War, the Club started its activity back again with enthusiasm, the number of members increased and we get the first champions from Bergamo: Dall’Ara, Chiorda, Grazioli, Crippa. In 1923, the group split from the Bergamo Cycle Motorcycle Union with which it had been operating at that time and fixed its headquarters at the Savoia Café. Five years later Raccagni, a member of the Motorcycling Club, won the first Italian title and the following season, with Mr. Luigi Piccinelli as president, the first all-roads competitions took place thanks to the Bergamo Motorcycling Club management. Egidio Picozzi became well known in the regularity, hetook part to eight sessions of the Six Days, winning four gold medals. From 1937 Massimo Masserini, Rovaris, Bologninin, Maladose, Priamo, Piccoli began to emerge in the speed sector. Right that year with president Buizza, the Club starts two important events: the “Circuito delle Mura” and “il Circuito di Bergamo” that have than been its flagship from the organization point of view for long time. Another stop was imposed by the Second World War. And than everything started back. In 1946 the number of its members increased. Its headquarters – which had previously been moved to the Donizzetti Cafè – was moved to the Savoia Cafè, and all races and activities, such as the cycle and motorcycle exhibition, start back. The “Circuito delle Mura” is a big success and in 1948, when Massimo Masserini wins with his Gilera 500 four cylinders on that spectacular track, a new era for the worldwide motorcycling starts. 1951 is the year of Carlo Ubbiale who wins on his MV125 the first of his nine world titles. The Bergamo motor cycle reaches a new record with Mino Agostini and his fifteen championship titles. Meanwhile in the regularity categories the Valli Bergamasche race becomes a legend, and an international competition at first, and a race of the European championship circuit later. This race is now at its 41th edition and with this year programme it becomes a world competition as in 1994 and in 1999, 2002,2005. In 1968 the Moto Club Bergamo organizes for the first time the International Six Days at San Pellegrino Terme. Than in 1981 all management and members cooperate for bringing the 56th edition of the Six Days at the isle of Elba to its success. In 1986 this exceptional event goes back to Val Brembana, in San Pellegrino and Selvino again. Meanwhile the organization of the “Cavalcata delle Valli Orobiche” is improved and this big, lucky, non-competitive event becomes the closing of the seasonal activities and marks an annual meeting recurring yearly since 1961, reaching its record with 3538 riders in 1961. Amongst all the important events we should mention: the Valli Revival, the Indoor of International Cross, the Trial Super Team and Super Club trophies, the Minetti Trophy-Enduro of the Orobie, the Trophy of the Regions – Memorial to Giapaolo Marinoni for the mini-cross, the “Notturno in Moto”, all classical meetings that are looked forward from all fans, unfortunately some lack of permissions and too much prohibitions made some of them disappear. From 1984 to 1992 the Motorcycling Club president is Luigi Ribolla, a well known manager who promoted its modernization. During those days the historical base of the Motorcycling Club is moved from via Locatelli to via Corridoni in Bergamo.
Since the beginning of 1993 the Motorcycling Club’s helm is held by the good hands of Franco Acerbis, successful businessman who, with the help of entrusted counsellors and a group of worth technical advisors, has given new lymph and nerve to the image and the activity of the Club. These are the years of the Trial World Championship in Foppolo in 1993 and of the Enduro World Championship in Castione della Presolana in 1994. A lot of the Motorcycling Club members are requested to cooperate for the Peru and USA INCAS and NEVADA rallies. Acerbis moves the Motorcycling Club headquarters in via Ghislandi 24 in Bergamo in a wide and spacious location with meeting and secretary rooms and than leaves his place to the bank-clerk Andrea Gatti that proceeds with the job already began, especially from the organization point of view that includes motor bike events, modernization of the new offices and using of the Motorcycling Club for national and international training courses. During those years the Motorcycling Club hadthe Enduro world championship 1999 in Rovetta and the world Trial championship in Foppolo in 2001. The Motorcycling Club is now entering the new millennium and Mr. Gatti stays as its president for the second (2001-2004) and for the third (2005-2008) time. Gatti, together with all the board of administrators and with the 23 sections of the Motorcycling Club, has successfully organized the Trial world championship – i.e. the 38th Valli Bergamasche – in Clusone on may 18th-19th, 2002 together with many other national events with the aim of keeping high both the name of the Motorcycling Club and its credibility, which was so deeply and honourably fought after by all his predecessors. 2003 and 2004 are years of calm and the Club organizes national competitions of snow bikes in Foppolo, trialand enduro (Foppolo – Ardesio – Rogno) not to mention the 10th Valli Revival in 2003 and the expedition in Brazil when 90 people from the Motorcycling Club went to Fortaleza in 2003 to organize the 78th ISDE six days Enduro from the 3rd to the 8th November. The Motorcycling Club headquarters are momentarily moved to the “Palazzetto dello Sport” waiting to get a more safe location in via Gleno, at the “Casa dello Sport”. In 2005 and for a period of four years, the Motorcycling Club with his new board of administrators and his historic president Mr. Gatti, are given new and important challenges from the FMI, which did assign to the Club the organization of three world championships over a 12 months period.
9-10 July 2005 in Valbondione – 7th world trial championship
15-16 October 2005 in Schilpario – 10th world Enduro championship – 39th Valli
Bergamasche Rovetta 17-18 June 2006 – 40th Valli Bergamasche Italian competition
for the Enduro world championship In 2005 many other competitions, such as the 11th VALLI REVIVAL at Oltre il Colle and 23 different events, took place thanks to the Board of Administrator and to the Club’s 21 sections. In 2004 the Cavalcata was brought back to Valbondione and in 2005, on the 23rd of October, in Schilpario where it was the last competition for the Italian Championship Junior and Major. The Motorcycling Club tried to combine everything so as to keep in mind that these events take place only if able to give the right degree of sport show to the public and be up to the Motorcycling Club level. We would like to remind that Moto Club Bergamo is the sum of its 21 sections which do cover all motor specialities and that during 2005 it has well cooperated for the realization of the Polini Italian Cup with its five race track tests, an event for scooter and mini-motard for the Polini SpA company. During these last years the Motorcycling Club has slightly changed, still looking for a main office able to meet all the 1930 members’ and 350 licensees’ expectations. Some big promises have been made and hopefully in 2006 the flags of all the sections will be waving below the Bergamo Motorcycling Club wing in a new, superb location. In 2006 as already told, our Club has been called by ITALIAN MOTORCYCLING FEDERATION to organize the test for the Enduro 40a world championship VALLI BERGAMASCHE in Rovetta, an Italian championship regularity group 5 and a Snowmobile test of Italian championship. We also continue the organization of Polini Italian Cup, that easily, increases our number of inscriptions and allows other activities. Thanks to the ACERBIS family we have a prestigious headquarter in Bergamo, via Carnovali n. 84, for at least 7 years without any charge or fee, that certainly will make somebody green with envy.
The 2006 will also be reminded for the fact that some councilors left the club while others enrolled with pride and we also registered the abandon of the MOTORANDO section, and for other reasons, the TREVIZA section. In 2007, as in 2003 in Brazil, we are called in by the Chilean Federation to collaborate for the organization of the 82a SIX DAYS ENDURO 2007. A huge expedition of 100 members will cheerfully but with dedication, leave their mark to this great event. Such a big mark that the Mexican federation, for the 85th SIX DAYS 2010, would like to have our cooperation, which thanks to the ACERBIS ITALIA SPA involvement, now-a-day, is synonym of warranty for such a high level event. This year we register a big event at Norelli: la VALLI REVIVAL 14th TROFEO G. REGUZZI for the 40th anniversary of the team foundation (1967-2007) with departure and arrival at the mythical FARA, in Città Alta (Bergamo). We cannot manage to get permission for our four specialties CAVALCATA and so we organize road and trial rides and moreover, several social Enduro races to keep our off-road fans linked. Time goes by and 2008 brings us with over 30 events into the new Olympics quadrennium 2009 – 2012. At the beginning of February 2009, the Club Assembly elects the 20 new councilors that confirms the President ANDREA GATTI, and elects as vice-presidents GHILARDI Urbano Dall’Ara RAFFAELE and RUNGGALDIER GIOVANNI who try with the cooperation of the Council, to give a new aspect and concreteness to the Club guidelines; Club which as always, remains leader in the off-road and in the number of members (1842). As a confirmation, INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLING FEDERATION and ITALIAN MOTORCYCLING FEDERATION for 2010 nominate the club for the organization of 2 other events, 41st VALLI BERGAMASCHE 3rd ENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP race in Lovere on 22nd and 23rd May 2010, where we will get for the first time the World Feminine race and the 7th World Trial race – 5th European Trial Championship in Foppolo on 24th and 25th July 2010. In these occasions we will celebrate our 91 years from the foundation (1919-2010) and show, even if not necessary, that the club is still alive, esteemed and well-considered at Federal level, as they rely on us as a warranty of safe and serious attitude: we are and we will go on being, with pride, the greatest Moto club in Italy, we are the MOTO CLUB BERGAMO. The Olympic four-year period 2013 was born like the previous one, with the confirmation of GATTI at presidency and PICCININI GIULIANO and BIAGGI ROBERTO at vice-presidency, the entry of 3 female advisors, that broke a male monotony which lasted since 1919, the foundation year of the Club. Just five years to go for the historical target of 100 years life and sportsmen from Bergamo start to manage the big party for the great goal: this will not be the party of BERGAMO TEAM but also the party of the entire city, a district and even a region from a motorcyclist point of view. This 2013 sees us protagonists at Sardinia in OLBIA participating in the Federal organization of SIX INTERNATIONAL DAYS OF ENDURO in addition to our usual 25 events with one test of Italian Snowmobile Championship, the Road Ride of the Orobic Valleys is the 2nd Mountain Trial For Diego without forgetting the MOTOR PARTY of Clusone, a true feast of the Upper Seriana Valley that recalls always a bunch of enduro enthusiasts. The year 2014 is a transitional year awaiting the 42nd VALLI BERGAMASCHE in ROVETTA in 2015 while the youngsters of the MINI ENDURO become great and they leave for more ambitious goals:they also leave friends for that white cloud that has already collected many Sportsmen and Endurists who have made our MOTO CLUB BERGAMO great… goodbye GIGI and goodbye ROBERTO. Immediately after the organization of the 41st VALLI BERGAMASCHE in Lovere it was said not to undertake other organizations of such vast scope especially for the weight they have on the modest budget of our Club given the financial and job crises that have hit the whole industrial world but instead we find ourselves with the CRAZY, UNCONSCIOUS Counselors and the President of the Bergamo Club who venture into the next world challenge of the 42nd VALLI BERGAMASCHE.
They were neither crazy nor unconscious but only dreamers, convinced that the strength of the men of Bergamo would be able to transform a normal organization into a war machine of event organizations and…all of you know the result by now: 42nd VALLI BERGAMASCHE TEST OF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ENDURO 2015 in ROVETTA on 19 – 20 – 21 June 2015 or EXCEPTIONAL EVENT THAT WILL REMAIN IN THE STORY OF THE MOTORCYCLE CLUB BERGAMO and IN THE HISTORY OF THE ENDURO. Besides Valli, 2015 was equally full of important events such as: 11th POLINI ITALIAN CUP in Six stages, MOTOR PARTY inserted in the 2015 Valleys, OLDRATI DAY and the Italian Regularity Championship GROUP 5. The Olympic four – year period 2013 – 2016 closes and the presidency of PAOLO SESTI ends in the IMF and the era of GIOVANNI COPIOLI begins. Also at the Bergamo Club the presidency of GATTI was due to end, who proposed to write the book of 100 years of Bergamo 1919 – 2019 but, after the slow passage of time and the traditional manifestations of 2016, after the transfer of the Clubs’ Headquarters from via Carnovali 84 to the new Headquarters at Lazzaretto still in Bergamo Piazzale Lodovico Goisis 6, we arrive at the 2016 GENERAL ELECTIVE ORDINARY ASSEMBLY of 2016 Friday 3rd of February, 2017 which elects the 20 New Counselors of Bergamo. The new Counselors meet again on March 6th, 2017 in the Clubs’ new headquarters at the Lazzaretto for the elections of the social offices. For the four – year period elder ANDREA GATTI, former president of the Club since 1997, is re-elected President of the Olympic Games 2017-2020 for five terms, the young NICOLA PICCININI and ROBERTO BIAGGI as vice presidents. The year 2017 is the year of the 50th anniversary of our SCUDERIA FLUVIO NORELLI Foundation and therefore the season is slipped away on the events of this important milestone:Feast of the Bench in Colle Aperto, Cavalcade of the Cinquantenario, exhibition “Le moto della Valli”, concert at the Lazzaretto “Around the Beatles “and finally the 15th edition of VALLI BERGAMASCHE REVIVAL – TROFEO GINO REGUZZI with over 300 drivers at the start many of whom are foreigners. We also remember the Italian Snowmobile Championship, the 12th Polini Italian Cup 2017, the Oldrati Day and in addition to other pleasant events that gave the Club the chance to be present on the competition fields with commitment, knowledge and a lot of responsibility especially regarding the safety of pilots and sportsmen, increasing the popularity and fame of our beloved Club. The year 2018 was a year of transition and preparations for the 2019 year of the Centenary of the Bergamo 1919 – 2019, even though there were about twenty events organized with POLINI ITALIAN CUP 2018, the Oldrati Day, a test of the Italian Trial Championship and some regional tests of enduro and mini enduro. Towards the end of the year we’ve had announcements. For several months now, the resignation of our president ANDREA GATTI who, for strictly personal reasons, left the position promptly received and accepted to GIULIANO PICCININI our new President, already president for many years of the SCUDERIA CASAZZA. The new vice presidents are currently adviser NICOLA PICCININI as Technical Vice President, and adviser MARCO GUERINI as Administrative Vice President replacing now resigned ROBERTO BIAGGI. We are now in the year of the CENTENARY MOTO CLUB BERGAMO 1919 – 2019 and the events are being put into effect for the occasion, the first of them being the new book “ 100 YEARS OF HISTORY” published by MOTO CLUB BERGAMO with project, texts, and editorial coordination by LUIGI BIANCHI and printed by the Bergamo company C.P.Z. SPA. Celebrations started with the Ordinary General Assembly and Extraordinary Year 2018 on Friday 29th of March, 2019 at the Mosaic Room “Ex Borsa Merci” of Bergamo with the important vote and acceptance of the NEW STATUTE OF THE MOTO CLUB BERGAMO already registered and accepted by the IMF and CONI which allowed us to be in good standing for the registration of ASSOCIATIONS AMATEUR SPORTS held by CONI. All this allows us to use the sport law for the Amateur Sports Associations, the now famous law 309/91, with which we administer our Club. Following the traditional ROAD CAVALCADE OF THE SPRING CENTENARY on April 28th, 2019 with departure arrival in STEZZANO at the LE DUE TORRI Shopping Center for many years sponsor of street demonstration. In this period the men of BERGAMO are all concentrated on the principal event of all times at Bergamo Club but above all of the Centenary or the 43rd VALLI BERGAMASCHE – 5th PROOF OF ENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2019 with departure and arrival in ROVETTA in the Alta Valle Seriana site of numerous editions of the famous and now unattainable event of the WORLDWIDE ENDURO to which is added the CENTENARY TROPHY to celebrate better this unforgettable goal and open the way for our next 100 years of history.
