Conjoined Italian clothing manufactures, AGV and Dainese, have teamed up with three of the most famous champions in Motorcycling history - Giacomo Agostini, Marco Lucchinelli and Max Biaggi – to launch the first Italian Legendary Tour.

This is an event dedicated to all motorcycle touring enthusiasts, who in September have the chance of spending four unforgettable days under the banner of Made in Italy, and discovering the fabulous scenery of the Italian Dolomites in the company of specialized guides with the help of Ducati, MV Agusta and Moto Morini

From May 18th to July 20th 2009, all those purchasing a Dainese garment from any Dainese flagship store, top dealer or using e-commerce on the website www.dainese.com, have the chance of winning and becoming part of the legend.

The Italian Legendary Tour is an ambitious project by Dainese and AGV which combines, in the name of Made in Italy, the best expressions of Italian motorcycling culture over the course of time.

The idea is to promote and valorize Italian tradition and excellence in the history of motorcycling through the main players in each area of reference.

The leather suits, Dainese protections and AGV helmets worn by champions, the motorcycles symbolizing outstanding technical experience and sophisticated Italian design, and finally the champions from different eras who have left their mark in the memory of all enthusiasts.

The group of forty lucky winners will start out from Dainese's headquarters in Vicenza where, after a visit to the past, present and future symbols of the Company, Dainese technicians will speak about protection and will give some precious advice about choosing equipment suitable to offer maximum safety while on the road.

The tour will continue along some of the most scenic roads of the Dolomites, in the Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige regions.

The group will stop in a different place each night, and each evening there will be the chance to meet one of the legends of motorcycling: Agostini, Lucchinelli and Biaggi, who will join the group the next day on the next leg of the tour.
