Really? I am glad that I missed that part. Good golly, Rossi raced like a demon, but he is not a god. The winner is secondary to me. I just like good competition. Isn't that the point of having class races?

For a long time, he looked younger than his years. I found this image of him from 85 searching images. The pictures says a lot, I think. Racing isn't always easy, is it?

Yep there was something wrong with Rossi. He cracked under pressure.

Wouldn't be surprised if that was from when he was racing 250s and 500s back to back. Took a lot out of him. An achievement no-one will ever repeat.

That was 32 years ago so 23, he looks old for a 23 year old

As an aside Rossi looked ancient after his off, guess the gremlins are coming.

I didn't pick that picture to show how young he looked. I picked it to show how stressed he looked. I was looking for pictures of him from his thirties and forties. I saw him quite a few times during that period, which is why I originally said what I did about him looking older.

You're joking right? He fucking looks like a 17 year old kid. Even now, I don't think the guy shaves.
