Artist Rob Kinsey and legend Rick Johnson present a painting to Giuseppe Luongo of Youthstream

At a gala dinner on Saturday evening at the 2009 Motocross of Nations at Franciacorta Italy, Rob Kinsey and American legend Rick Johnson presented Youthstream President Giuseppe Luongo with a painting of RJ and David Bailey on the final lap of the 1986 MXDN at Maggiora.
Unfortunately David was unable to attend as he is competing in the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii next weekend. However he did send this message;
“Looks really good Rob. Nice work! I remember that exact jump and lap. I had waited a while for him and then he sort of squeezed me out before that drop and I was like, hey! It was pretty narrow through there though at the top. Rick was cool about it and it was really fun to do that last 1/2 lap with him. We were both pretty much like RC at the time.
Enjoy the Des Nations and thanks for all the nice paintings. You’re keeping me alive!
Yes, I’m headed to the Ironman on the 7th (race is the 10th) and I feel like me old self. After all the physical hardship it’s nice to be healthy again.”

Giuseppe Luongo loved the painting, which will have pride of place in his office.
