  1. Rossi entered the premier class in 2000. Here we are 18 years later and not only is he still relevant, he is a threat for the win or at least a podium on any given race day. He made some transitions that others couldn’t; 2 stroke to 4 stroke, traction control, dragging knees to dragging elbows, etc. Most of his pesent day competitors had posters of Rossi on their bedroom walls. The documentary “Faster” was made in 2003. It’s follow-up “Fastest” came out in 2011. Watching those 2 documentaries back to back, it’s amazing how many racers came and went in those 9 years….except for one. Love or hate him, a true legend.

    1. Balam, well, rossi is second in championship now. He is still at the front row except 2011-2012 when he is in ducati. So just bear with it, he is still trying. We love to watch him race after all… He know better than us about when he should stop…

    2. true. I wounder how he would compete today if he where on a honda. Yamaha is clearly struggling a little bit at the moment

  2. even Max put some high respect to Valentino. No like Rossi’s two competitors today, who has no respect at all to the legend. Yes, they are younger, stronger, faster, but to disrespect the living legend doesn’t make them to be more respected. 2015 was the dark age of MotoGP season. People will always remember how those two young riders “cooperates” to knocked down the legend.

    1. Legends are legends, and you can respect them in an statue, but you cannot let them pass you because of their past.

    2. Balam yes but they were very different times and not as competitive machinery wise and then after that in the 80s, none of those guys came from the lower classes so didn’t have the same opportunity. Rainey got 3 before his injury, eddie Lawson got 4 and doohan got 5 and they all could’ve got more but no competitive rider could last as long as Rossi without injury coz these bikes are tame in comparison and mick doohan definitely would’ve got more if it wasn’t for injury and in a much more competitive field you could argue as well. Back in agos day all you had to do was ride the mv Augusta and you were guaranteed championships, they were the only real professional ‘factory’ team until the Japanese came along.

  3. Rossi said it best himself. His battles with Lorenzo are the best because they had the exact same bikes and no one could say it was anything other than rider

    1. john sims yeah just like in 2002 when Rossi was the only one with the new Rc211v other than his team mate taddy okada but as soon as he won the tittle 2 races before the end of the season, they let barros have one because he wouldn’t be a threat to Rossi tittle (that fact alone says he isn’t the myth you all make out he is) and barros absolutely made a fool outta Rossi and was also getting on in age but still more competitive than Rossi is now or has been all this decade and a couple yrs before that even. As soon as they brought in control tyres it was all but all over for Rossi as he couldn’t and can’t compete on equal machinery actually as was witnessed in his rivalry starting with gibenau who wasn’t anything special or even a contender for 10 yrs before Rossi came along having only won 2 races prior in over 10 yrs in the field

  4. Troppo bello il dialogo sulla scalinata di Catalunya
    Vale: ”cazzo fai idiota?”
    Max: ”oh ce n’è pure pe te eh bello!”

  5. rossi is Nr.1 in Moto Gp history. hope marquez dont will be better T_T than all people say Nr.1 in Moto Gp history is marquez…. but no… hes not…. the nr1 is the nr.46 😉

    1. +99rofl Marquez tries to drive too fast. He drives at full speed and is rash. He falls off and gets injured. He is still very young and has a long career but he cannot keep doing this for winning. he won two Moto Gps but for longer career he has to ride like vale.Vale is the master of corners and mostly finishes in the podium and has been winning since 2001.

    2. I’m one of the hugest fan of Rossi since he race the 250cc, and I had to admit that Marquez is really on another level.

  6. Big mistake! Biagi woke up the beast! I wanna see rossi ride like dat now. It’ll be an awesome race if rossi can catch up with marquez and win diz year. It’ll be legendary

    1. krayzie_E soBreezy dude i was just thinking this when rossi said the fear thing and then I read your comment

  7. this rivalry is worthy between rossi and max than today Rossi vs those spanish rider…they settled with clean race…

  8. Rossi è il miglior pilota della storia del motomondiale e la sua carriera lunghissima sempre nelle posizioni di vertice ne è la dimostrazione.
    Biaggi grande talento anche lui, ma si è trovato davanti il pilota più forte del mondo e questa cosa non gli è mai andata giù.

    1. Ragazzi su la grandezza dei 2 piloti non ci piove, però questi eventi avvegono quando Biaggi con la sua inferiore yamaha, come ammesso da Valentino stesso quando le hanno proposto di passare alla yamaha, con quel cesso di yamaha io non gareggio RAI3 2001, dopo allettanti garanzie ha accettato.

  9. love Val flicking him off. Perfect. that was very dangerous elbowing out a rider off the track and in rain none the less. I think if you were in Val’s place you would do the same. awesome rider and fun to watch.

  10. Massimiliano was a sick rider, but as a sick person he sooner or later, went to see THE DOCTOR

    1. I just went back 3 days ago at the rare but good tracks. In the states. MIi in particular. RED BULLS CIRCURIT SHORTE RACE BUT MARK MARKEZ ‘S VEGAS ODDS WERE 12-2~ I HAVE TO LOOK THAT NUMBER UP . OF THE HE 12-2 ODDS FO1 MARKEZ AND IT MARKEZ .HIMSELF . YOU GIVE HIM THE LEAD ANY TIME LEAD BARRIYING AND CRASHES OR BIKE GOES OUT ETSC….

    1. Pratik Parija sometimes I wish I would’ve born a little earlier so I could witness those races, I’m born in 2001 and started getting interest in MotoGP around 2011/2012, but I would’ve loved to have been following the sport earlier than that 🙂

    2. Same as me Rossi and Biaggi then it didn’t stop up to now Rossi at his age still beat younger rider in their prime. VR46 LEGEND
