Rossi...joined by umpteen hanger-ons

IN A PROMOTIONAL stunt ahead of this weekend's French GP round, Valentino Rossi went for a bit of a spin out on the Parisian roads on an R1 yesterday.

Surrounded by a gaggle of Yamaha bods and the odd 'Ooh look I'm riding with Rossi, he's my mate, I'm really important' sad journo types, the Doctor doesn't exactly look comfortable over the wet cobbles, does he?

Equal amounts of front and back brake, Valentino. Equal amounts, dear boy.
