TO CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF THE TUMI+DUCATI LUGGAGE COLLECTION, THE DUCATI XEROX WORLD SUPERBIKE RIDERS TROY BAYLISS AND LORENZO LANZI TO APPEAR AT HARRODS IN CENTRAL LONDON

The Ducati Xerox Team's World Superbike riders Troy Bayliss and Lorenzo Lanzi are to make a special one-off guest appearance in the famous Harrods department store in Knightsbridge, Central London on the morning of Thursday 25 May.

In an event organised in collaboration with Ducati Corse's luggage partner Tumi, the two riders will be present in the store from 10 o'clock until 12 noon before they head off for the fourth round of the World Superbike Championship, which is taking place at the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire on May 27-28.

Troy and Lorenzo will be greeted by representatives from Harrods, Tumi and Xerox prior to the store opening and will then pose for photographs in front of the Harrods shop window where the luggage collection is on display. They will be escorted by the store's security guards through Harrods to the Tumi concession in the luggage department to sign autographs and stop for more photographs with fans, customers and employees. Finally the riders will extract lucky names from a helmet in a prize draw to see who wins a pillion ride on the Ducati Xerox 2-Seater Experience at the Silverstone weekend as well as some items from the high performance Tumi+Ducati luggage collection.

World Superbike makes its first annual visit to the UK for the Silverstone round, this year with Ducati Xerox rider Troy Bayliss firmly in command of the championship. The 37 year-old from Australia, WSBK champion with Ducati in 2001, has won the last five races on his Xerox-backed Ducati 999 machine and will be aiming to increase his winning streak on UK soil. His 24 year-old team-mate Lorenzo Lanzi from Italy, is chasing his first glory this year after two outstanding wins in 2005.

Tumi, the leading international brand of prestige travel, business and lifestyle accessories recently signed a three-year licensing agreement with the Italian manufacturer of high-performance sports motorbikes. The exclusive Ducati Collection by Tumi includes a range of eight racy black and Ducati red travel and accessory bags that feature the company's logos. The collection, which includes wheeled luggage, backpacks and messenger bags, is available through 500 Tumi retail stores and Ducati's network as well as top specialty and department stores worldwide.
