MotoGP: Bagnaia and his “brothers”: the VR46 riders (with Rossi) in Misano


July is vacation time for the World Championship riders. For many, but not for everyone. In fact, the VR46 Academy riders met at the Misano circuit for a training day on road bikes. There’s still a month left until the Red Bull Ring race, but in order to keep limber, there’s nothing better than a few laps around the circuit dedicated to Marco Simoncelli.

The Riders Academy riders were almost all there, with the only exception of Franco Morbidelli, still recovering from knee surgery, and Luca Marini, who took a few days off. Pecco Bagnaia on the Ducati Panigale V4, and Stefano Manzi, Celestino Vietti, Marco Bezzecchi, Andrea Migno, and Niccolò Antonelli took advantage of a perfect day to train.

Valentino Rosswas also with them (even if you don’t see him in the photos in the gallery below) , since he never misses the opportunity to challenge his students.

All the riders definitely had a lot of fun and were able to hone their skills before allowing themselves a bit of rest, switching from jumpsuits to swimsuits.
