Actually there would be ................... but they would have had to have started him with a standard series of tests and continued those tests through today.

It is actually not unusual (and Mike would probably know of a few examples) where medical tests do occur across years if not decades to determine the standard set or level of deterioration of one's faculties.

It would actually (IMO only) be incredibly interesting to see such a series of tests done on high level athletes across their careers and into subsequent post career life (across a variety of sports as well)

My problem is not general knowledge in this area, but rather that I no longer have the specific knowledge at an academic and professional level I once had when I did some training to be a neurologist before electing to go a different path, hence no longer keeping up with the latest research in this particular discipline.

In general terms I don't believe Rossi would have had significant neurological deterioration at age 28 or 29 in the absence of significant brain, spinal or peripheral nerve injury. Jorge did have significant such trauma in his rookie year btw, suffering several concussions, eventually requiring him to miss races iirc.

Your major flaw is in logic anyway as I said, given Max Biaggi was mostly over 30 and hence probably Rossi's most significant opponent was not in his "prime" by your definition when Rossi raced him while Rossi was in his "prime", but Mick Doohan beat Max to win his 5th title at the age of 33 when Max was in his "prime".

When do you think you were at your physiological peak?
Do you think it was during the Wham years when your were singing carefree,party pop songs?
Was it the more mature span of your solo career when you were singing about being a lover, mentor and friend or was it when you were forced to come out of the closet after the cops caught you at the recieving end of a glory hole?

Johhny, would you say you were at your peak when you played the role of a power bottom in Borat?

I would be curious if any gp riders go to the lengths Michael Schumacher did while at his prime, the constant blood tests, etc.

Interesting. What else did he do? His skiing accident was such a tragedy.

Did he not also use a hyperbaric chamber from time to time?

The story just seems to ring a bell but may not be Schuey
