It took 14 years for Valentino Rossi to launch his personal website www.valentinorossi.com, but having now been bitten by the internet bug, 'The Doctor' has followed the old adage that if you wait for ages for something then two will come along at once – with a new official merchandise site now for fans to visit too.
“Scusate il ritardo – sorry for the delay,” Rossi explains with a smile, “but now I really like the internet!”
And so, the record-breaking multiple MotoGP World Champion's next project, , is ready to go, with the introduction of an exclusive website dedicated to merchandise based around all of Rossi's favourite colours, symbols, fashion wear and accessories – with simplicity and ease of use the trademarks. The FIAT Yamaha star has always maintained a very close relationship with his supporters and now, thanks to the internet, it is even easier to enter his colourful world.
The site is divided into four main sections, with complete catalogues for men, women and children and a very unique area reserved for special events, offering limited editions of Vale's merchandise for the most important occasions in the Italian's extraordinary sporting career.
Acquiring the exclusive articles of the VR46 line is now just a mouse-click away, with an intuitive, easy-to-understand menu for the selection of products, and with the help of an operator who is always available on the telephone hotline if need be.
What's more, after browsing the catalogue, the link to www.valentinorossi.com offers fans the chance to keep up-to-date with the Urbino native's activities, special events and life at and away from the racetrack – as well as the opportunity to listen to interviews with him and his favourite songs, and to enjoy exclusive videos.
