If a racer see's another racer as a hero for their accomplishments why is this sincerity in doubt? Have you ever ridden a motorcycle? much less race one? To suggest that VR isn't a hero to millions is thoroughly naive. You Rossi haters are a little "out there" it would seem.
I'm so amazed a supposed motorcycling fan can so steadfastly refuse to acknowledge the motorcycling brilliance of Valentino Rossi.
Maybe you're stuck riding trikes so have a hard time realizing the talent required to guide a two wheeled machine. That would explain your hate filled drivel.

Back to the topic, GO BEN! Hang in there till next year and it'll be a new game, most know the talent you possess.

You- a junior rider are going to slam a world CHAMPION ??
No wonder you find yourself on a second rate team- Loser !!
You were a WSB champion because Haga choked -as he has generally allways has done. He himself turned his FAST switch off, wich allowed you a championship.
Much like Schwantz picking up Rainey's misfortune.
Come to think of it, I do not recall him slamming other riders for his own short comings as you do!
Spies you do suck. Maybe bicycle riding is where you belong. Your saga will go down like Mladin's-

saying Rossi is a hero doesn't mean that he must be "worshipped". He is a hero because he has done what nobody else has done. is that so hard to understand? As a racer I get it. Couple of armchair Internet racers like CB99 and CRT will never understand what Rossi's accomplishments represent to "real" racers and "real" fans.

So you are a "real" racer eh Roman.
In your own mind maybe.
But tell me,what has Rossi done that no other rider has done?
Bearing in mind that Ago won 15 titles,122 gp races and 10 TT victories.

@ 99 Crystal Ball

The better question(s) is(are), what have the other riders achieved that Rossi hasn't? Or, how many other riders are trying to achieve even a fraction of what Rossi has?
