Rossi suggests 2007 sponsor

Riding a Yamaha M1 decked out with an "Excalibur" sticker yesterday, speculation continues to gather about Valentino Rossi's 2007 sponsor. The factory team have been linked with, amongst others, Spanish communications giant Telefonica since terminating their agreement with Camel at the end of last season, but have yet to announce an official sponsor. With this in mind, Rossi today decked out his 800cc bike with a sticker for "Osvaldo's Chicken Shop" referencing a fictitious sponsor of his 1998 250cc campaign.

Ever the popular rider, Rossi had two members of his Fan Club in attendance at the Malaysian test today, demonstrating the lengths the Italians will go to support their hero.
