FIM honours its champions!

For the second consecutive year, the International Motorcycling Federation chose the city of Estoril in Portugal, and more specifically its luxurious casino, to organise its annual gala. Accompanied by the traditional prize handing, this particularly prestigious event brought together on Sunday 4 December the world stars of motorcycling sport as well as a few legendary figures such as Angel Nieto, Carl Fogarty, Eric Geboers, Yjro Vesterinen and many others.


Alongside them, some 500 guests trod the red carpet leading to the impressive Silver and Black room at the casino in Estoril to enjoy the very special evening to award the world's best riders. Among them, Nikolai Krasnikov, seven-times world champion of Ice Racing supported by Motul, was handed his medal of 2011 champion. Broadcast live on television in several countries and presented by the most popular English-speaking motorcycling hostess, Suzi Perry, this ceremony also awarded Dominique Meliand, team manager of Suzuki Endurance Racing Team. Also supported technically by Motul, the French team with the incredible list of victories won its 13th endurance title in 2011!For the second consecutive year, the International Motorcycling Federation chose the city of Estoril in Portugal, and more specifically its luxurious casino, to organise its annual gala.
