Mar.13 - SportLand: Matt's passion for two wheels begins in 1980 when he begins to follow speed events. At the age of 17 he embraces his career as a journalist and, after a start in Motor Cycle News and as an off-road reporter, in 2015 he is with the MotoGP ™ World Championship. Today it is one of the most authoritative voices and signatures of the world competitions.
It was October 25, 2009 when Valentino Rossi won his last MotoGP ™ world championship. The ninth of his legendary career. Seven crowns in the highest class and two at the beginning in the lightweight categories, the Doctor's story is a continuous pursuit of the victory that continues unchanged until today, after more than twenty years.
The Doctor has triumphed in the saddle of the most different bikes - let's take a look at the ones that have marked his twenty-year career.
Since 2009 the question of whether Rossi can win the tenth title is the constant of each season. A number that, already legendary pilot, would put him in the Olympus of the very few who have a double digit of world championships; on all Giacomo Agostini with 15 crowns.
And the question returns: Rossi will be for the tenth time world champion?
"Age is a mental issue, it goes beyond the subject," says a quote by Mark Twain, American author and thinker. In the case of Valentino it looks like this: the numbers at the registry are just numbers and the years that pass do not decisively affect his performance. Rossi continues to challenge the time passing in the championship of his thirty-ninth birthday.
