Pizza at Momma's place is what drove Nari Salvatore () back to Italy. mapei bianchi offered him a staff position, so today he said farewell to Iran. He returns to his birthplace Palmanova to be reunited with his 'warm' family.
Salvatore wasn't that motivated to work for Team Oasis anymore. His spirit was gone, although at age 33 he still managed to score a decent 6th in division 1 downhill race. Recently he questioned whether he should stay in Iran and work as a trainer. "I have loved being in Iran and have to thank Team Oasis for the experience of a lifetime. They offered me a chance to shine that i would have never had elsewhere. But i begin to miss home more and more. I want to see my cousins grow up, teach them about life. Maybe i can become a father myself."
It was rumoured that there was a spot in the Oasis staff for Salvatore but he argued that was not the case. "I've been working with the legend Sirjani and he taught me to win, you can't think of a nicer trainer than him. What would i add to team?".
And so the happy marriage ends with a respectable palmares. Salvatore won 5 races (1 of them WT-C) and scored a total of 8 results on high level. A wonderful achievement for an AV-46 rider of his caliber. His most memorable win: Juberri - Canolic S30. "That day i managed to overcome a true obstacle for Team Oasis. From that moment on the team got wings."
