Thumbs up Rossi, Ago & MCN at the IOM TT

MCN laps TT with racing legends Rossi and Agostini
By MCN -TT & road races
08 June 2009 14:28


MCN Editor Marc Potter has just called in his first brain-frazzled thoughts following his lap of the Isle of Man TT course with MotoGP legends Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini.

Potter, riding a 2009 Yamaha R1, was more than a little excited.

He babbled: "It was like the fastest B-road ride of my life but then I had to keep reminding myself it was the TT course. And then I had to keep pinching myself when I was realising that I was following the No46, The Doctor, Valentino Rossi. And not only that, his mate Ago was there too. It was surreal and incredible."

"At times we were doing over 150mph on the Mountain and although Rossi and Ago and the Travelling Marshals weren’t pushing that hard for what they can do, there were times that it was all I could to hang on."

We’ll keep updating the story as Rossi spends the rest of the day on the Isle of Man.

which one?????
the folk that argue Rossi isn't the greatest of all time (not me) only really ever mention one other name, that be the older in the red/white, the legendary Giacomo Agostini (15 World Champioships and 122 Grand Prix wins)

so lets go ride around the infamous IOM TT circuit with those two,
I'm so jealous

1) Rossi presents the winners trophy
2) a quick pose for the press with the TT IOM Superbike top 2
3) sponsor duties over it's into cauals on the pit wall
4) then viewing from the 170mph Bray Hill (Rossi was heard saying "****" as they came past )
5) a nice cup of hot tea with Ago

looks like he's enjoying it
