THE New Inn in Wilsden will be having a farewell party for motorcycling legend Valentino Rossi tomorrow.

It will be the Italian's last competitive outing, after a career spanning over 400 races, in which he won nine world championships and secured nearly 200 podiums.

A group of enthusiasts from the village will be watching on, full of emotion, as the man widely considered the greatest motorcycle rider of all-time completes the MotoGP season.

Most of those attending the Wilsden event will be wearing their VR46 clothing or hats, and one fan may even bring his replica motorbike.

Pub landlord Miguel Schreck has even got celebratory cake and drinks for those wishing to cheer on the Italian on the big screen, from 1pm.
