IOM TT: Rossi cancels TT lap

Italian GP legend cans lap of the TT due to bad weather, but may still make an appearance

MOTOGP WORLD Champion Valentino Rossi has cancelled his planned lap of the TT due to bad weather.

Unpromising Met Office reports for the weekend have forced the eight-time world champ to rethink his trip.

Good news though: the GP legend is still itching to ride a lap, so he's re-scheduled his planned ride with Giacomo Agostini until Monday. The pair will ride a couple of road-going YZF-R1s.

Sources say Valentino is really keen to ride the circuit, having made space in his busy schedule to see the racing and ride the famous 37-mile course.

Check back over the weekend for more updates.
