Giacomo Agostini - M.V.Agusta
In 1972 Maureen and I attended the International races at Olivers Mount,Scarborough to see what was the best entry ever gathered there up to that time. Among the riders was multi World Champion Giacomo Agostini with the Italian M.V.Agustas.
"Ago", as he was called, won 15 World Championships in all and 10 Isle of Man T.T.races before retiring from the sport in 1977. He is still active in the sport and regularly rides the M.V.'s at Classic races and parades, including Mallory Park, Leicestershire last Autumn. More details about him can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giacomo_Agostini
(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions. This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)
