Valentino Rossi, is one legendary rider who is dedicated to motorcycles and racing like no other. His passion goes beyond the track to country roads and motocross too. Avid Moto GP followers and Vale fans are all aware of the fact the Rossi owns a ranch back home where he likes to practise and sometimes calls upon his opponents of the likes of Marquez to come and join him for some dirt track racing.

The 2014's record breaking racing season may have been over, but there was no shortage of action as Valentino Rossi invited a number of familiar faces to his Tavullia MotoRanch last weekend. Wrapping up the campaign for 2014, Rossi and a number of youngsters – including those of the VR46 Rider Academy – took part in the now annual ‘100 kilometres of the MotoRanch’ at his ‘La Biscia’ (The Snake) dirt track.

Riders competed in 16 pairs. Each duo had at its disposal two bikes but just one transponder, which team-mates had to interchange after every five laps. Prior to the start Rossi reminded all competitors of the agreed rules, which included strict bans on shortcuts, while the loss of a transponder would result in instant disqualification.

The intense fight ranged on until sunset, with the winning pair proving to be the all-Italian combination of Niccolo Bulega (sixth overall in the 2014 FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 category) and Lorenzo Baldassarri (stepping up from the Moto3™ World Championship to Moto2™ for the 2015 season).

Second place went to 2013 winner Valentino Rossi, this time paired up with Andrea Migno, while the podium was completed by Danilo Petrucci and Mattia Pasini.
