Rossi to ride in charity motocross event

The World Champion Valentino Rossi and several of his Italian Grand Prix colleagues are to take part in a motocross event to raise money for children suffering from leukemia.

Valentino Rossi is organising an event to raise money for a children’s hospital which treats leukemia sufferers in the Italian city of Pésaro.

On Sunday 15th November Rossi will be one of the riders taking part in a special motocross event to give a financial boost to the hospital, with Andrea Dovizioso, Loris Capirossi, Marco Simoncelli, Mattia Pasini and former 500cc World Champion Kevin Schwantz also all booked in to attend.

The organisers are hoping for a big turn-out from fans to support the event, which will take place in Cavallara, a 40km drive from Pésaro.
