Mickael Pichon's Worn and Signed Shirt, 2002
Take home this blue shirt worn by French motorbike racer Mickaël Pichon for a Motocross World Championship 2002 race.
Pichon has signed the shirt on the front, making it unique.
Please note: The shirt is unwashed and displays evident signs of use.
After starting his motocross career in Europe, where he was crowned French champion several times in the Elite category and especially in Supercross, he moved to America.
During the 1999 season, he returned to Europe and competed in the 250 Motocross World Championship with the Suzuki team. In the following season he fought a grueling duel with fellow countryman Frédéric Bolley and finished runner-up due to a shoulder injury in the last phase of the championship. The following year, however, came his greatest success to date, the title of world champion in the 2002 World Championship in which he won 11 out of 12 Grand Prix.
In 2006 Mickael signed a deal with KTM and joined the official team together with fellow Frenchman Sébastien Tortelli; after just one race, however, he announced his retirement from full-time competitions.
Pichon currently competes in both the enduro and motocross French championships, always on KTM, and occasionally takes part in international supermoto races.
Autism is an alteration of the normal developmental processes, which leads to a linguistic, cognitive, social deficit and an impairment of the adaptation and game play skills. Children suffering from this disease lag increasingly behind their peers during their growth process. The cause is unknown but there are several evidences of neurological anomalies in some areas of the brain.
Autism Aid Onlus was founded in 2004 on the initiative of the autistic children’s parents who had acquired a long-time experience in the US. The non-profit Association’s solely purpose is to pursue the social solidarity by defending the rights and equal opportunities of people suffering from ASD.
The Association is committed in several fields, among which:
- Work training courses implemented by horticulture and cooking labs, with the aim of acquiring specific skills and know-how to support people’s autonomy and spread the social skills.
- Natation and track-and-field sports training courses held in several sports facilities and developed through individualised paths based on the attitudes of each athlete. This gives people the opportunity to experiment and prove themselves in several recreational and sports activities.
- Continuing training courses destined to the school and educational services professionals in order to ensure the autistic students an adequate involvement in the scholastic activities, that is the first “step” for their social integration.
