Giacamo Down Under Phillip Island

Recommended Posts

They guy hs class and is still the man.  King Kenny maybe, but Giacamo is The MAN

 

MOTORCYCLE racing legend Giacomo Agostini will attend the International Island Classic at Phillip Island in January.  In a coup for the event, the 15-time world champion also will bring four championship-winning MV Agustas from the 1960s and 70s.  The bikes, held in a private collection in Milan, are the three-cylinder 500, on which he won the title on from 1966-72; the four-cylinder 350 on which he reigned supreme in 1972-73; and two other 500cc machines from the same era.  Motocycle racing legend Giacomo Agostini on a MV Agusta race replica.  Agostini, 75, will ride the 350cc MV Agusta on the parade lap at the island.  It will be his third visit to the circuit.

Cool, let's hope he doesn't decide to take a nap while riding. 😄 I know, I'm terrible but someone has to carry the sarcasm torch or else we lose it forever.

I'm just bored, no one to talk to much, that's my excuse for stirring things up. Any reply is better than none at all.

No doubt Ago is one of the of the all time greats. Unfortunately, it is difficult to judge just how supreme he was since most of his career, he had a factory multi and went up primarily against privateers riding singles and twins. Marquez & Co have a massively greater task in order to excel. Still, he managed to take a title on a two-stroke 500 near the very end of his career, so there is little doubt that Ago had what's required.

 

Be that as it may, I think it is very cool that he is still active and that he's even bringing his old bikes - mucho cudos 👍

 

You can skip the first three and a half minutes
