The Italian Championships were held at Bergamo near Milan from 30th April to the 4th May. The first and 2nd tasks were cancelled because of rain but 3 good tasks followed. Elio Cataldi won the 3rd and 4th tasks with Filippo Oppicci winning the last task.
Elio Cataldi is the new Italian Champion for 2008!
