Schumacher rides Desmo

Published: 21 October 2005

F1 Ferrari racing legend Michael Schumacher is doing a Rossi - he's riding a MotoGP bike at 11am today (Oct 24).

Schumacher will get a blast on Loris Capirossi's Ducati Desmosedici MotoGP around Mugello, Italy. He's had his own set of Alpinestars leathers made specially for the occasion.

The top secret test is booked privately at Schumacher's request. It's meant to be behind closed doors but the Italian media is swarming all over Mugello after leading Italian paper Gazetta Della Sport splashed the story on its front cover this morning (Oct 24). The test is still going ahead.

Keep checking back for more as we get it.

Rossi has been testing Ferrari F1 cars. While Rossi's tests are thought to point him towards a future on four wheels, no one is expecting Schumacher to swop to two!
