Valentino Rossi and Bridgestone will continue to work together to promote the passion for motorcycles and riders all across Europe. The nine-time MotoGP Champion said, “I’ve been working with Bridgestone in MotoGP for many years and have always been impressed by their professionalism and the quality of their products. Continuing this agreement gives me an exciting opportunity to contribute to new Bridgestone motorcycle road tyres.” 


The CEO of Bridgestone Europe, Franco Annunziato said, “Valentino Rossi is a great ambassador for our company. With the extension of our agreement, we have secured advice and recommendations from one of the greatest motorcycle competitors of all times, thereby ensuring that we bring the best new Battlax tyres to market.”


Rossi will provide his opinions and evaluations on the Bridgestone tyres used for racing and sporting purposes. His inputs will also be used to a certain extent by Bridgestone to develop road tyres. 


Bridgestone entered MotoGP in 2002 and became its Official Tyre Supplier in 2009. Rossi had raced with Team Ducati for the last two years but will race with Yamaha for the 2013 season.
