Rossi's pit bike

Here’s a picture of my boyfriend Matthew Stephenson on Valentino Rossi’s pit bike after the final ever MotoGP race at Donington Park last year.

Rossi had just sped through the garages on the pit bike before parking up outside the Yamaha tent, pleasing his mob of fans with autographs and then disappearing into the tent to no doubt watch gruesome replays of his fall during the race.

It made Matthew’s day that he was able not only to sit on Rossi’s pit bike, but shake hands with his hero!

We think it’s an awesome photo and thought you guys might like it too! Marie x
