Rossi Fan Club descends on Valencia

Rossi Fan Club descends on Valencia

Around 600 members of the Rossi Fan Club joined the thousands of spectators cheering on the Italian star to paint the grandstands yellow at the Ricardo Tormo circuit today. As is traditional, the aficionados have a special plan in the event that their hero wins the World Title tomorrow and, as is also traditional, there is a strict vow of secrecy amongst the group.

Flavio Fratesi, one of the organizers of the Fan Club, spoke to motogp.com about how they prepare for such a decisive race.

"A large number of his neighbours from Tavullia have come here to be with Valentino on this special day. It is a big party for us, because you have to bear in mind that we are a small town of only 5000 inhabitants," said Fratesi.

"It is a special weekend, and a great experience for us. You can never get used to winning titles, it is always a new situation and this time it is even more so, being the last race of the season. If Valentino wins the championship, we are convinced that he is going to surprise a lot of people with his celebration."
