Finnish Husqvarna rider Heikki Mikkola wins his third race in a row to start the 1974 500cc Grand Prix season, this time in Italy. But Mikkola does lose his first moto of the season to defending three-time World Champion Roger DeCoster of Team Suzuki. DeCoster had gotten off to a tough start that season, allowing Mikkola to build a massive lead in the points. Behind them U.S. rider Brad Lackey, Mikkola's Husqvarna teammate but a close friend of DeCoster's, had his best finish yet with a third in the second moto.
