September 8th 2004.

MADIF Industries is celebrating a double-podium finish at the Portuguese round of MotoGP in Estoril, which took place on September 5th 2004. Its riders Makota Tamada and Alex Barros finished second and third respectively. First place was taken by Valentino Rossi.

MADIF Industries produces the Arlen Ness and Berik ranges of motorcycle clothing. Wearing their Arlen Ness and Berik race suits, the racers fought hard, with Tamada managing to make a serious challenge for the lead.

Berik rider Tamada said: "I didn't quite have the edge to make a final attack but it was a good race anyway. [It was] great to start from the front and be able to decide what movements to make. Montegi is next; an important race because it's my home, the place I most want to win."

Arlen Ness rider Barros was equally satisfied: "It was a very physical and mental race that was very important after some of the recent results. We need to be able to build on this performance in preparation for the rest of the season. My team has worked very hard this weekend and I am very happy to be able to give them and my sponsors something to smile about."
