Video: Valentino's ten step guide to motorcycle magic


Category: Dailies

Back when he was an employee of Yamaha, they had Valentino Rossi ride an R6 around Ascari circuit in Spain. The video, entitled "Ride like Rossi: Ten steps to improved track riding," has California Superbike School UK boss Andy Ibbot and Valentino Rossi giving riding tips. Rather than playing it safe and just telling you to sign up for CSS, Andy and Rossi get started by lapping the track in a car, then jump right in with line selection and the basics of backing it in. Part two goes over throttle control, reference points, race starts, steering, body movement and finally aerodynamics. Even experienced riders can gain valuable insight from these videos.
