MotoGP Argentina: Rossi best and worst: Welkom ’04, Valencia ’06

MotoGP star Valentino Rossi picks best and worst moment from 20-year Grand Prix career.
Picking a best and worst moment from two decades of grand prix racing is no easy task, but Valentino Rossi offered the following in Argentina on Thursday.

“Difficult to say. Maybe the best one I want to say the first victory in South Africa with the Yamaha. That was a great race. And I think the worst one was when I lost the championship in 2006 in Valencia. I think these two.”

Today (March 31st) marks exactly 20 years since the Italian made his world championship debut in the 1996 125cc Malaysian Grand Prix, which Rossi finished in sixth position.

That picture says it all. Fans cheering VR as he celebrates with them. Unlike his current team-mate who makes those arrogant poses to show off himself like he is the best,fastest,..........So annoying.

Laguna Seca 2008 was a good one and Assen 2007 when he started in 11th place and won! Then there was Philip Island when he got a time penalty for passing on a yellow flag and still won! Then there is ............ Sorry, but too many brilliant races to choose from!
