Rob Marshall Review: I am an Irish expatriate living and working in Milan.
Just prior to moving here, I had shoulder stabilisation on my right shoulder and needed extensive rehabilitation.
I found Alfredo to be incredibly knowledgable, thorough and professional throughout all our dealings.
I was previously worked with Olympic and World Class Physios in Ireland and abroad, and Alfredo is in that bracket.
He was exemplary in every way in managing pain, progress and the psychological state of mind during each phase of rehabilitation.
For any non-Italian speakers, Alfredo has totally fluent English, a pristine clinic in the centre of Milan and all the technical attributes to complement the former points. I thoroughly recommend to any and all seeking rehab in Milan to visit Alfredo. 10/10.
Last year Andrea’s main goal was to get his hands on an official Ducati Bike. The focus was on being faster, more focused and more performing during races.
When Ducati and Phillip Morris decided to give Andrea this chance we knew we had achieved our goal.
What we did not know was that in the deal Ducati provided such a performing machine which would allow Andrea to get his first pole of his career at Mugello and a great Podium with a P2 between the two Yamaha.
And this exciting championship is still going to show more surprises I believe.
2008 Safari tour, Lorenzo Jovanotti: “Doctors told me to stay in bed for ten days. I could not let my 6800 fans down. I wish to thank Fabrizio (Borra) and Freddy (Dente) the two physios who helped me to get back on my feet. It’s the right recognition for my miracles team.” (Blu Media)

MotoGP Laguna Seca 2009, Casey Stoner – Ducati MotoGP Team – 4th
“It has been a weekend to forget. I can’t be happy with fourth place even if it has limited the damage to my championship chances. Today I didn’t feel as bad at the end of the race as I have done in the last two but I’m still not right. I found it really difficult to keep my concentration over the last few laps and I was in a bit of a daze by the end. My left arm was feeling really tired by the end because of the fact there are so many left-handers here and my left wrist still doesn’t have the full range of movement after my operation in the winter. I’m really disappointed because without all of these problems we could have done so much better. I want to thank the team for giving me a great bike and also Doctor Claudio Macchiagodena and our physiotherapist Freddie (Dente) for all their help. Now we’ll focus on trying to find out the root of the problem because racing in this condition is not much fun.” (motorcycle-usa.com)
MotoGP Catalunya 2009, Monday Test Info
“This morning, when I woke up, I had some cramp in my legs and a backache so I did some physiotherapy con Freddy (Dente, the team’s physiotherapist) and then got on the bike. I was not in perfect shape and I couldn’t make more than a couple of runs at a time. Despite this, we managed to test what we needed to test, the set-up of the bike, the carbon fork and a new rear shock. I’m fairly happy because the test has confirmed what we thought and I think we are improving bit by bit. We are still lacking some rear grip but we we’ve found a few ways to improve the bike and I am optimistic. Now I’m looking forward to resting and to getting back to 100% fitness in time for Assen.” (superbikeplanet.com)
“Gracias al equipo por su trabajo y a mi fisioterapeuta, Freddie Dente, por ayudarme a estar en la carrera con una fractura en la muñeca.”
“Merci à l’équipe pour leur travail et à mon physiothérapeute Freddie Dente, pour m’aider à gérer la course avec une fracture au poignet.“
Nicky Hayden – Ducati Team, Jerez, MotoGP, 2013
“The small tweaks we did to the bike this morning were improvements, and after I was fifth in the warm-up with a decent pace, I was confident for the race. My start was okay, but I lost the gap when Bradl crashed in front of me and I wasn’t able to stay with Bautista and Crutchlow. Thanks to my physiotherapist, Alfredo Dente, and the Clinica Mobile, who helped me to race despite the problem with my wrist. With the adrenaline, the first fifteen laps weren’t much of a problem, but the last part wasn’t much fun. It was our best weekend so far this season, so hopefully we can build on it.” (motorcycledaily.com)

“Hard riding can definitely raise one’s heart rate to the same level as that in any hard fitness session. This happens for two reasons, the first being the physical effort a rider is required to expend when riding these bikes. The second is due to adrenaline, which is the most powerful heart stimulation anyone can get,” adds Alfredo Dente, official team physiotherapist at Ducati’s Super Aguri F1 MotoGP team. “But this is a situation which should not happen while cruising around on our public roads, since it would mean that speed limits and safety would definitely not be respected.”
