After a stunning race at the TT Assen Circuit on Saturday, where Valentino Rossi won his third race this season, the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider made his first ever appearance at the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed (just up the road from us here at CMW Motorcycles), which this year carried a theme of nostalgia and pride in the growing interest in motorsport.

The nine-time World Champion was specially invited by Lord March to make his debut at this famous event as a guest star. Rossi travelled straight from the Dutch GP to the UK to be able to attend the event.

What a hero! How could you not love him (unless you're Marc Marquez of course!).
