Moto2: Elias a winner in four classes

Victory for Toni Elias at the Spanish Moto2 Grand Prix means the Spaniard has joined an elite club of riders who have won in four different categories of GP racing.

Elias has now won races in 125, 250, Moto2 and MotoGP. The only other riders still racing to have achieved wins in four different grand prix classes are Italians Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi, who both won in 500cc before the premier-class became 'MotoGP' in 2002.

According to official MotoGP stats, the full list of riders that have won races in at least four grand prix classes are:

Valentino Rossi (125cc, 250cc, 500cc, MotoGP)
Loris Capirossi (125cc, 250cc, 500cc, MotoGP)
Chas Mortimer (125cc, 250cc, 350cc, 500cc)

I don't see anything wrong with the article. It's not comparing him to Rossi, simply saying that group of riders are the only ones to win in 4 categories. It's not saying they are equal in terms of skill.

@elias It is what it is...why would you bring up rossi? - that's the one race Elias won in the 990's when he pipped Rossi at the line and same year Hayden won the championship. No disrespect to the 'Legends', Rossi Fanboy...
