2011 Italian Legendary Tour 2011

The Italian Legendary Tour kicks off Wednesday: the Dainese and AGV on the road adventure is now in its third edition.

The group of 50 riders leave the Dainese Vicenza headquarters to ride for three days on winding roads and bends through spectacular Northern Italian landscape in the company of champions whose names are part of motorcycle racing history.

Together with the lucky participants, Giacomo Agostini, Marco Lucchinelli, Carl Fogarty, and Marco Simoncelli will take their turns in the saddles of legendary motorcycles: Ducati, MV Agusta, Honda, Yamaha and Benelli on a tour branded with Italian identity in celebration of the nation’s 150th birthday.

In a change from last season’s event two legs of the tour will be open to the public:

  • Friday, September 9, 1.30 p.m. at the Hangar Aereo Club in Como, Via Masia 44. The champs and the participants will meet the fans and narrate the first two days of the tour. The group will be welcomed by Como Motor2 racer, Claudio Corti.
  • Saturday, September 10, 6.30 p.m. at the MotorVillage Mirafiori in Piazza Cattaneo 9, Torino. The tour’s last stop will feature a Dainese and Fiat press conference attended by David Philippaerts and Marco Lucchinelli. All the backstage details in the words of the riders themselves. The press conference will also provide the occasion for a sneak peak at the Supercross SX Series European Tour.

Italian Legendary Tour is the ambitious Dainese and AGV project that combines the best expressions of motorcycle protection culture over the years in the name of Made in Italy. The idea is to promote and enhance the motorcycle world’s traditions of excellence through its protagonists in each context of reference.

Leather suits, Dainese protectors, and the AGV helmets worn by the champions, and last but not least, the great racers who defined different epochs themselves to live on in the memories of the fans.

Follow the legs of the tour day by day on Facebook and become a part of the legend yourself.
