Whilst a hive of activity at this weekends Grand Prix at Misano, the tiny town of Tavullia was remarkably empty this morning.

Whilst a hive of activity at this weekends Grand Prix at Misano, the tiny town of Tavullia was remarkably empty this morning. Of course, there had to be a reason for the mass exodus of a large proportion of the towns population, one which would have been apparent to anyone up with the birds on Saturday morning.

Some 300 members of the Valentino Rossi Fan Club had made a journey on foot from the Italian stars town to see this afternoons qualifying session, creating an impressive spectacle as they paraded their yellow t-shirts, flags and memorabilia on the 14km route.

The Fan Club, headed by Rino Salucci and Flavio Traversi, are amongst the most dedicated followers of the MotoGP World Championship, and will be in a large majority of the crowd willing the former five-time MotoGP World Champion on this weekend.
