ITALIAN LEGENDARY TOUR 2010 HAS STARTED!
DAY-1: from Vicenza to Mugello Circuit
Italian Legendary Tour 2010 kicked off on Monday 13 at Dainese headquarter in Vicenza. Outfitted in leather and saddling Ducati, MV Agusta, Harley-Davidson, Honda and Yamaha, the group zipped over to Mugello Circuit near Borgo San Lorenzo, riding through Colli Berici, Colli Euganei, Polesine, the city of Ferrara and the mountains of Appennino Tosco-Emiliano.
Along the mountains we meet a cold rain, but at Mugello Circuit the fun starts because Valentino Rossi, Giacomo Agostini and Kevin Schwantz were waiting for the group!
DAY-2: From Mugello to Maremma Toscana
Today a very warm sun was shining after last night’s rain – phew!!!
The group passed through Fiesole and Florence, taking a break in Piazzale Michelangelo where we admired the view from under the bronze copy of Michelangelo’s David: one of the best views in the world, together with our bikes!
The snake-like trail of motorbikes stopped in Greve in Chianti and picturesque medieval walled town of Monteriggioni. Nearby, the group enjoyed a large lunch, after which some people looked like they really needed a nap… but the stops are shot!
Another stop in the afternoon has been in the very fascinating abbey of San Galgano, now tumbledown, before enjoying cocktails in stunning Massa Marittima. And finally, by night we were in Principina, on the Tuscany’s coast: 272 km today in the sunshine!!
Today the third and last stage, 303 km from Maremma to Argentario.
