Prince Harry has asked MotoGP star Chris Vermeulen for riding tips after meeting him at the British MotoGP round.
Vermeulen’s mother told the Brisbane Times the Rizla Suzuki rider invited the bike-mad Royal to the Donington MotoGP round after seeing a picture of Harry riding his Triumph Daytona 675 wearing a Vermeulen-replica Shoei X-Spirit helmet.
Julie Vermeulen told the local newspaper: Harry's asked him to give him some lessons. He's got a Triumph he rides and he looking at getting a Ducati."
Chris Vermeulen also handed Prince Harry the helmet he wore for his 13th-place finish at the Donington race, plus another to give to his older brother Prince William – to keep the peace in the Royal household!
She added that a date hasn’t been set for the one-to-one training, but it will take place on a UK circuit.
