Valentino Rossi has spoken exclusively to MCN about his admiration for TT riders after revealing this week that he plans to ride a lap of the famous Isle of Man TT course.
He said: "I’ve met Guy Martin, and every time I see him I take my hat off to him because he has big balls to go so fast at the TT."
Rossi is thrilled at the prospect of riding a lap of the famous 37.73 miles course with Italian legend Giacomo Agostini.
Valentino said he could not have a better tutor to experience the course and he added: "I hope we can do this. Ago is one of the masters of the TT.
"He won a lot so maybe he can teach me some secrets about the roads there."
Rossi has also been picking up tips about the TT after speaking to fellow Yamaha MotoGP rider and Isle of Man resident James Toseland about the famous Isle of Man races.
