Marco Melandri has split with the Barni Racing Ducati team in WSBK.
Melandri came out of retirement to ride for the team replacing the injured Leon Camier who could not continue the season given his injuries. Melandri raced in four rounds for the team with a best result of eighth, however, was not feeling good on the bike with many non-points scoring results.
Melandri is quoted as saying, “Thx to all Team Barni but I have energy to go forward one more day. My season end up here, failure give the awerenes to don’t have remorse..
I was feeling bad on the bike and did not have fun.. once on track I feel empty inside..
Is time to leave space to young rider, wanna be focus on DAZN and Ebike races cause they open a new world on my life, Thx to everyone.”
His replacement will be Samuele Cavalieri who currently races for the team in the CIV championship.
