Valentino Rossi to attend Isle of Man TT Races as Star Dainese Guest

Eight-time MotoGP world champion, Valentino Rossi, has confirmed today that he will make his first visit to the world-famous Isle of Man TT races in June this year with Dainese, who recently renewed their current partnership with the Isle of Man TT races as Official Safety Partner for the second successive year. The company's founder and CEO Mr Lino Dainese will accompany Rossi and Italian legend Giacomo Agostini on this historic visit.

The Doctor of Tavullia, winner of 97 Grands Prix will attend the Dainese Superbike Race on Saturday 6th June with Agostini, who raced on the famous Mountain Course between 1966 and 1972, winning 10 TT races which then held world championship status.

Rossi will complete a memorable parade lap of the 37.73 mile (60.7 km) circuit before the start of the six-lap Dainese Superbike race. He will ride behind the course car on a 2009 Yamaha R1, flanked by eight of the famous Travelling Marshalls, who will be riding similar machines.

Wow! Will the Pope show up too? Maybe we could get Buzglyd to lead the Octogenarian Motorrad Clog Dancers Float.
