Haslam: Rossi and dad are my heroes
Leon Haslam is racing alongside his all-time favourite bike racer: Valentino Rossi. Oh, and then of course there’s dad Ron.
GP 500 racer Leon, 18, was answering your questions in a live web chat in our VIP Lounge on Thursday lunchtime.
Leon also admitted that, should they ever come back into fashion, he’d have a bash at growing sideburns as impressive as his father’s.
He talked about the exciting life of being a GP racer at 18, and how he loved to perform Crusty Demons of Dirt style tricks in the past on motocross bikes.
We’ll add a full transcript of the chat posted on the site later, so you can read Leon’s answers in full.
