Rossi hosts Marquez and World Championship stars for MotorRanch day

Rossi hosts Marquez and World Championship stars for MotorRanch day

Following his victory at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini on Sunday, Valentino Rossi invited MotoGP™ World Champion Marc Marquez and a host of World Championship stars for a day of riding at his impressive MotorRanch facility.

Rossi and Marquez were joined by the likes of Francesco Bagnaia, Leon Camier, Loris Capirossi, Luca Marini, Andrea Migno, Franco Morbidelli, Miguel Oliveira, Mattia Pasini, Tito Rabat and Bradley Smith for a day of dirt riding.

Just a few kilometres from Misano, the scene of Rossi’s superb victory and the uncharacteristic Marquez crash which saw him end up 15th in the race on Sunday, the riders reconvened at Rossi’s MotorRanch dirt track circuit on the outskirts of his home town Tavullia.

The nine-time World Champion regularly rides and trains at the purpose built facility which is also a training ground for the young riders of the VR46 Academy. Marquez is a keen motocross rider in his spare time and he enjoyed the day riding a Honda CRF 450, alongside Rossi and their World Championship colleagues.
