Video: Following Rossi on his Isle of Man TT parade lap

MCN editor Marc Potter was lucky enough to ride alongside Valentino Rossi during his parade lap around the infamous Isle of Man TT course. Watch the video highlights to see the lap from Potter's point of view as he follows racing legends Giacomo Agostini and Valentino Rossi.

Rossi Rides Round the Route

Was there something wrong with Marc's bike? It seemed a little light at the front end to me! Seriously, it must have been amazing to have been given this opportunity to die for. Lucky boy. How do I go about getting a job at MCN?

Potters Wheelies

Having commented on the poster from last week I couldn't miss commenting on your wheelies. You are pretty good and did a fair job matching Rossi as you said you tried too. Excellent video looks like fun. Was that the first time you have ridden the course?

Stanleyknife: You need to join the cue for the jobs.LOL

Oh..Potter

You lucky lucky bar steward...seriously jealous, just glad you did'nt overcook the wheelies! lol

Next time maybe MCN could run a competition and a chance to ride around a track with the GOAT or someone of his ilk...........good idea or not?

+1 on the very respectable wheelie fun. 

if MCN ran a contest for a "ride w rossi", i would certainly throw my hat in the ring.  though i doubt he would want just any schmo tailing him.  some over eager puttz fails to break and tags the doctor?  and forces rossi to mis a race, or multiple....and we'd have to hunt him down and kill him.

Potter's Video

Well done Mr. Potter; a video to proudly show your grandchildren.  Ahh if it had been me following on my Duke 690, or on my BMW R1150RS; well, I'd have been left for dead.  Good riding.

Holy Throttle Chopper Batman!  Was this video about Rossi doing a parade lap or the guy filming being able to do power wheelies and show us how he can't maintain speed?
