Rossi's dad crashes the bike he designed!
MCN reporter Chris Newbigging is currently in northern Italy at the launch
of the Ouroboros dirt track bike a machine co-designed by Valentino Rossis
dad Graziano. Newbigging has just phoned MCN HQ, saying: I got the
interview with Graziano and he agreed to let us put an onboard camera on
the bike when he went out next. He was riding brilliantly for a few laps
then crashed it big time. The onboard camera was stuck to the tail unit
which broke off in the crash and landed perfectly so we got footage of
Graziano dusting himself down too.

Warren Racing's V Max
1990 Yamaha V Max. All stock internals with some bolt ons and damn fast. I
call my V Max "The Bracket Killer" because the bike is deadly consistant on
times during bracket races. As long as I cut a good light, the odds are in
my favor that I will win. The bike runs within .02 of a sec every pass, and
thats hand and foot shifting. No air shifters here.. John
