Marc and Alex Marquez’s management agency have this morning officially confirmed that the brothers have split with VR46 Racing Apparel, Valentino Rossi’s highly successful merchandising company.

The split was first rumored to have taken place at the end of the 2015 season after Marquez’s and Rossi’s on-track clash and public falling out at Sepang, but was denied at the time by senior members of the Spaniard’s camp.

The story then reappeared a number of weeks ago. Linking the brothers to Spanish-based GP Racing Apparel, the company behind merchandising for a number of riders including Jorge Lorenzo and Nicky Hayden.

The news was officially confirmed in a short statement released this morning by the two brothers agency.

AC Management, company in charge of managing the image rights of the riders Marc Márquez and Alex Márquez, informs that they have agreed with the Company VR46 Racing Apparel, S.r.l. to terminate the license agreements previously in force and under which the latter was in charge of the exploitation of both riders’ merchandising. 

Both parties appreciate services rendered while the agreement was in force and wish each other success in future endeavours.
