Valentino Rossi will greet today a Misano his fans and all motorcycle lovers. One of the greatest professional riders of all time with 9 world championships on his shoulders. Valentino RossiDoctor Rossi. It applies to everyone. The original, the unique, the inimitable. Not an ordinary mortal. The number 1, despite the fact that I always used the emblematic now 46.
He, who in his own way is so extremely character changed the way you see MotoGP, live it, feel it, but most of all win it. We will miss everything about ValeThe drift, the weak overtaking, the collisions, the shaved hair, the pink. Kisses in Yamaha, the usual superstitious gestures before departure. And going back in time: the chickens of the “Osvaldo Poultry Farm”, the inflatable dolls, the seven dwarfs, the angels, the sketches, even swimming on the track. Yes, because Vale is all that. It is genius and recklessness. Sympathy and audacity.
Excellent, smart, competitive talent. Solar, direct, honest, sometimes disobedient, sometimes disrespectful. He did the impossible. Breathtaking overtaking. This was a masterpiece for Lorenzo in Catalonia in 2009. Conflict at the border. This Stoner at Laguna Seca in 2008 remains unforgettable. The masterpiece wins. The one in Barcelona in 2016 in Marquez who forgets it now?
