Following an exciting head-to-head with Loris Capirossi on the Sepang circuit in Malaysia, the champ was first to cross the finishing line which gave him his fifth victory of the season and put him third in the rider general classification with 188 points.

Valentino Rossi wore Imatra glasses which feature unmistakable gutsy lines emphasized by high-impact colors, perfect for being worn on any occasion by an ace like 'The Doctor'!

Jorge Lorenzo, testimonial for Carrera, was confirmed as absolute protagonist of the 250cc world championships with his seventh victory of the season, the second in a row. Currently, the Spaniard is at the top of the general classification for his category with 224 points.

Again during the Malaysia Grand Prix, Mika Kallio, also a Carrera testimonial, took the second step of the podium in the 125cc class. With 181 points, the Finnish rider is now second in the classification for his category.

Both riders wear Flag 1 sunglasses from the Carrera collection designed by Enzo Sopracolle and inspired by the 'Heritage' theme, the original Carrera spirit which was strong on style and determined its success in the Seventies.
The essential design of this rider line is underscored by slender temples personalized with the unmistakable 'C' symbol and the metal vertical detail on the bridge, the new icon of timeless style.
