Valentino Rossi

They call him the GOAT – The Greatest Of All Time, a worthy title that`s used by fellow riders as much as his millions of fans. An all-time hero and absolute legend of MotoGP and motorsport as a whole, Valentino Rossi has received honours from racing legends past and presen for not only his abilities on the bike, but the colour and sheer entertainment he brings to the sport.

The 34 year old has racked up nine world championship titles and has long since cleared 100 victories in all classes.

In 2013, VR returns to the factory Monster Energy backed Yamaha squad, with whom he won four of his Moto GP titles, along with his legendary crew chief Jeremy Burgess in tow. This will be his eighteenth season in which he will compete against the world’s best in the fastest motorcycle series on the planet.

It doesn`t take much to see why he`s dominated headlines for all these years: The Doctor manages to combine raw racing talent with a knack of adding humour and theatre to his repertoire. In good times and bad, he`s had an incredible bond with his fans, often played out in front of heaving grandstands but also in the paddock where the back of his garage often resembles a siege in progress.

On track, Valentino`s capabilities on a bike have defied logic and understanding on many an occasion. Toying with the bike he`s invented techniques that have baffled and then tortured his opponents who`ve tried to follow his lead but it`s been the grandstand finishes that have had millions on their feet. Highlights include Catalunya in 2009, his long and protracted battles with Gibernau and Biaggi: he`s produced sheer mastery when you thought there was nothing else to give. And he`s done it in style.

Away from the 2-wheel circus Valentino`s made no secret of his passion for 4 wheel racing. Having tested for Ferrari in F1 with massively credible times, he`s taken his abilities to WRC and lately become the star of Monza Rally Show which he`s won on multiple occasions.
