Two-seater snow ride for Ducati MotoGP riders

File this under 'Things you don't expect to see'...
Having completed their Wrooom press conference duties earlier in the week, Ducati MotoGP riders Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden had some fun on Thursday - riding the Ducati two-seater in the snow!

Rossi will be back on spiked tyres when he faces Ferrari F1 stars Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa during Friday's final-day four-wheel ice races.

Injured team-mate Hayden, who broke his shoulder (and fractured ribs) in a flat track training accident on December 27, is likely to be a frustrated spectator... unless he again decides to join Rossi as a passenger!

Thursday wasn't the first time a Desmosedici has been ridden on ice - CLICK HERE...

"From the way some people talk, you would think 9 world championships meant nothing!! Winning one world championship is mega, and the rider is totally ecstatic having reached such a monumental feat - imagine winning 9 of them!! Posted by McLarenP " I couldn't agree more, all the idiots on here who slate valentino, quickly forget his past achievments. One mediocre season does not make him rubbish. What most people forget, is that even the kid who finishes last in 125GP, is still a world class rider, and unbelievably fast, so imagine what it's like at the top of MotoGP!!
