A day at the office with Rossi, Lorenzo, Edwards and Toseland

A day at the office with Rossi, Lorenzo, Edwards and Toseland

Yamaha’s four MotoGP stars called in at Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A.’s headquarters this week en route to Laguna Seca.

motogp.com was lucky enough to be invited along this week as championship chasing Fiat Yamaha pair Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, accompanied by their Monster Yamaha Tech 3 colleagues Colin Edwards and James Toseland, put in an honest shift at Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A.’s headquarters in Cypress, California.

Rossi the receptionist, Lorenzo the janitor, Edwards the security enforcer and Toseland the mailboy were all hard at it, looking after their fellow employees.

The quartet of riders are clearly proud of the hard work they put in away from the circuit, in between races, as the following free video shows.

At the end of the ‘hard day at the office’, Yamaha set up one of Rossi’s Fiat Yamaha YZF-M1 MotoGP prototypes onsite and each and every Yamaha U.S.A.’s employee - and their families - got the opportunity to have pictures taken with the four riders and the bike.
