Agostini becomes “Grand Marshall” of the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2006
News, 12/02/06

The AMA and Cagiva USA have announced that Giacomo Agostini will be “Grand Marshall” of the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2006, a festival which takes place in Ohio in June.

“To have Giacomo presiding over this event will be a great experience, not just for MV and its fans but for all motorcyclists” said Lawrence Ferracci, Operations Director for Cagiva USA. “Agostini is a great champion and an icon in motorbike racing”. The Italian is considered one of, if not THE, greatest riders of all time. In 1999 he received a gala in recognition of his Hall of Fame induction. Throughout his career Agostini earned 15 world titles and 123 Grand Prix victories. The MV Agusta, which Agostini rode to victory,will be one of the focal points of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, part of a classic bike exhibition that promises to be one of the festival´s main attractions

Ago was probably the most successful GP rider ever, winning championships between 1965 & 1976. Here's a pic of him at that time:
