Great guy Loris, a long and mostly illustrious career, maybe the fire had gone out during the last couple of years but at his height he was a true lion......but I don't agree with retiring the 65, that sort of thing is more appropriate in more tragic circumstances. 34 should never have been retired either.

rather than having the number 65 retired, it would be better to give him the key to the number instead.

that is, he will decide or approve who will use the number in motogp. the likes of Johnny Rea and Stefan Bradl will have to earn that right from him.

a great racing number should be inherited (by the right racer), not retired. that would be a better sign of respect.

I'm really pleased to see Capirex in the game in another way and he will only be an asset in this role.
The #65 should be retired.
The only numbers that should never be retired are #1,#2 and #3.
Loris made the #65 famous,infamous and immortal over 22 years of GP.
Back to ABC. My special request to the FIM is that #1,#2 and #3 should be obligatory based on the previous seasons results.
Glad to hear Stoner will man up to that plate again as did Lorenzo this season.

He can give 1st hand advice to anyone looking to win by sheer running into them and knocking them off. Legend

But I don't think they should call him a safety adviser. LOL

not agree to retire n 65, of course every one remember Capirossi and 65 but also other riders like Johnny Rea have his own n 65 and is not just, Bradl dont earned because his n 65 is about promotion brand i guess, and also Bradl not attitude, lets see, i still think he deserve a final chance with 1000cc bikes or at least a decent Ducati in WSBK...he still here with a good bike, like everyboy with a good bike,

and crash: this is false, i dont write
