Nine-times world motorcycle champion Valentino Rossi features in a You Tube video showing his dirt track style.
The three-minute film released by Dainese shows Rossi and friends Thomas Chareyre, two-time world supermotard champion, and British Isle of Man TT icon Guy Martin raing around “Rossi’s Ranch”, a track he built on his property near his home town, Tavullia, Italy.
Despite coming from different disciplines the trio battle on their dirt bikes, although with the home track advantage Rossi is the winner. “I think I am faster here because I have more experience in this place.”
