Valentino Rossi was in attendance at the DAR Dainese Archive presentation, which took place this morning at the company HQ in Vicenza. The Doctor, having long been linked with the Italian brand, didn't want to miss this long-awaited event.
The event also provided an opportunity to ask #46 on his thoughts regarding Jorge Lorenzo's upcoming move to Honda: “I'm quite surprised, they did well to keep it quiet – commented the nine-time champion - it's good, but he'll be a tough rival for everyone”.
So Valentino is quick to hint at his rival's potential come 2019. He's also asked whether he thinks #99's decision to enter wolf Marquez's den is a courageous one or not: “Eh, I don't know”, he murmurs, before greeting the crowd.
