We are delighted to sponsor MotoVentures in their second mad adventure to Valencia MotoGP! Those of you with us last year will no doubt remember "Viva Valencia" when Danny, Steve Keys and BBC presenter Matt Roberts rode to Valencia on pink R1s and joined our Friday charity party.

This year, Danny and Steve will be joined by the challenge winner George Nickless will be riding Yamaha YBR125s from UK to Valencia - on a total budget of £125 each!! This is all in benefit of Riders for Health.

George was selected from dozens of entries of people who did not previously have a motorcycle license: he completed his license and several grueling tests!

Meet George and the team Friday night at Valencia! The party is included with all package bookings, or you can book separately here (€55).
