In this week's edition of MCN, editor Marc Potter tells his behind the scenes story of riding with MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi at the TT. Potter was given exclusive access to join racing legends Rossi and Giacomo Agostini on a parade lap in front of 40,000 people.

TT

Surely the front page should have John McGuinness on the front after 15 TT wins not Rossi.He gets enough coverage in MCN every week.The racing is far more important than a lap by Rossi.Back page would have bin sufficent.Its only a parade lap after all.Give some respect to McGuinness.

T.T

I think martyn 23 you should dry your eyes" the sport headlines are always on the back page and the news on the front and like it or not a legend like valentino coming to the t,t is big news that most people want to read about. Big respect to McGuinness for winning the race and im sure m.c.n will have the back page and more written about him!!!

rossi at the TT

What are you lot moaning about, it's great that Rossi could come over and show his face at the TT, so what if he has front page on MCN, he brings credibility, and publicity.

Who the hell has heard of John McGuiness, or Guy Martin except die hard TT fans, and I can bet you if Rossi wated to compete seriously at the TT, he would wipe the floor with McGuiness, and every other rider out there, and probably set a new course record.

So just enjoy the races, and except that a legend came to the Isle of Man.

yes, it's great to have rossi at the IOM, but show some respect for the guys that lay it on the line like mcguiness at the TT.  also, don't forget about a certain other legend named G. Agostini that rode around the island with rossi - the like of which not even rossi will ever hold a candle to ...

Valentino at the TT

Valentino is a fan of the TT and he respect all the riders that are over here in the Isle of Man racing at the TT. and if you don't know who Jhon McGuiness and Guy Martin are , you know nothing about bike racing . I respect all the riders from the one that win to the one that arrive last . Just for partecipating at the greatest road racing in the World . Thank to all the riders that are partecipanig at the TT, for giving uf this great racing experience .

Rossi at TT

Would Rossi have been World champion if the TT was still part of the championship. Barry Sheene wouldn't go! I think their is a strong distinction between those who can and can't do it. It is equally dangerous for all who participate and looking at Roosi's reaction to the short interview at the side of the road (TT circuit) I am convinced he's a can't !

Thought this would stir you all up.Dont get me wrong Rossi is a legend but were at the TT this week not moto gp.No way would Rossi do the TT and if he did McGuinness,Hutchy and Martin would wipe the floor with him.Each to there own l say.

Ys it's the TT  ,no rossi won't ever race there, and yes giacomo agostini was there, BUT rossi is figure who has worldwide recognition and is totally unmatched (in the motorcyling world at least!) in terms of getting coverage/raising the sports profile etc........ok he may have actually been paid to got to the isle of man ,but far from his presence detracting from the racing , surel it's only enhanced it?? how many more people , even in europe , have been exposed to the TT as a result?as far as i can see it's only win /win. rossi gets a day out round the TT with his mate and ago , mcn gets the publicity, dianese gets the publicity, iom tourist board gets the publicity, and us mere mortals get to see rossi close up (and calling macguiness a gladiator!)
