Doesn't Giacomo Agostini still look great for an old fella? He was at a do I went to at Brooklands recently. He does some TV work for Italian Sky, and he goes to as many rounds as he can. Not bad at 74 years old. Anyway, do you know he never really hurt himself when he was racing? He cut his leg once, and that was about it. Which is ridiculous when you consider the tracks he was riding on for over a decade, ones that most of his mates died on. Yeah, he had the best bike for a while so didn't always have to push, but then he had some quick team-mate in Mike Hailwood and Phil Read who he had to beat too. And he had to try hard when he jumped on the Yamaha two-stroke, and he won on that as well. The man's a legend. Fit as a fiddle he is, I can only hope I'm the same when I hit his age!

About Fast Bikes

TEST THE BEST IN THE BEST TEST Yes, it’s that time of year again when we all decamp to some far flung track and spend two days living the life of Riley; burning fuel, razzing tyres, scuffing sliders and scoffing pizzas. From the moment the light goes green to the second the circuit switches it back to red, we’re out on track trying to understand.
