There was a point in time when Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez were on good terms. Remember that? MM93 even admitted to having posters of Rossi on his bedroom walls when he was a child. The relationship even turned professional, with Marquez choosing VR46 merchandising to hock his apparel and things. After the turn of events that happened between the two at Sepang last year, the relationship between Rossi and Marquez has disintegrated entirely. So much so that Marquez has officially terminated his contract with VR46 Merchandising. The full (short) press release is below.
AC Management, company in charge of managing the image rights of the riders Marc Márquez and Alex Márquez, informs that they have agreed with the Company VR46 Racing Apparel, S.r.l. to terminate the license agreements previously in force and under which the latter was in charge of the exploitation of both riders’ merchandising.
Both parties appreciate services rendered while the agreement was in force and wish each other success in future endeavors.
