This is the first trackside video of Rossi riding what we believe is Cal Crutchlow's WSB Yamaha R1, filmed by the only UK journalist in attendance - MCN's Michael Neeves.

Rossi is riding just four weeks after his horrific 106mph highside at Mugello.

The nine-times world champ isn't visibly impeded by his recent shin injury, and completed two sessions of 10 and 14 laps, a scant 1.5 sec off the pace of the bike's WSB race pace.
