Jorge Lorenzo Maybe Leaving Dainese For Alpinestars


Jorge Lorenzo maybe leaving Dainese which supplies the overalls, gloves, boots, etc, and switc to Alpinestars the same used by, among others, Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa or Nicky Hayden after 2010. Apparently the 2010 reigning World Champion is not happy with the fact that the Italian company, that supplies a number of professional riders, has failed to use him in any ad campaign exploiting his MotoGP title.

The question goes even deeper as Lorenzo has found out that his arch rival and former team mate, a certain pain in the ass that goes by the name of Valentino Rossi, is not only the honorary president of AGV Helmets (even if Lorenzo wears Nolan) which was purchased in 2007 by Dainese from Imag and that ‘The Doctor’ is also a shareholder in both companies and is close friends with Lino Dainese, who founded the company.

Dainese has been supplying Lorenzo since his 250cc days and Lorenzo has also been involved in the D-Air leathers development and has always received the same technical treatment as the other Dainese riders, but Lorenzo wants more star power and wants to stay away from the still shining light of a certain MotoGP legend, who pulls sponsors towards him like a black hole or it could be something more simple and venal, like more sponsorship money.
