Just picked up on the tail end of the topic and comments. Rossi's 200th GP start happens when he rides one lap tomorrow. I believe FP1 is the start of a race weekend and thus a start. So,under correction congrats to #46 prematurely.
Dunno what all the fuss is about Barros. One of the best and arguably greatest of the late brakers ever.
Perhaps his nationality did not favour the best kit available over the years. That ain't nationalistic, its just that Brazil place lower priority on two wheels. In fact,lower,much lower than round balls and 4 wheels.
Alex had a pair of big ones even on sat Ducati kit.
No doubt Rossi will join the 200 club. Question is,when will he notch up his 80th win and first one for Ducati?
How many premier class riders have won on 3 different marques in premier class ? I'm listening.I can research it but,I'm not not interested.
Rock on Tissot a couple of hours hence.

Yeah, but what about from the first victory in 125 to the last in motoGP?

We should also consider that, I think.

How does Vale stack up there with the greatest from the past?
That would be interesting to check.

To answer some questions about Jack Findlay (have you seen "Continental Circus", amazing AMAZING movie with Jack as star..): JF started GPs in 1958 and ended his carrer in 1978 after a big crash in Le Bol d'Or. So that's a GP carrer of 21 seasons. Nieto has done more: 23 seasons (1964-1986)although no start in the premier class. Do you guys know about a website with GP stats ?

How about how many riders won the last race of the season on one manufacturer of bike and won the first race of the season on another? There is only one@


Go Vale. He won't win but we'll be cheering 'till the end...
