I don't get this 'what is his motivation' business.

Everyone talks like this guy is old. He's only late 30's ffs. I wish I was back in my late 30's, albeit without the problems I was having then, haha.

If he's in great shape, not in pain, making tons of dough, having fun - why the hell would he quit?

Ya, he's not as cutting edge as he once was but he's ahead of most of the field and can probably tell himself if things had just gone his way a little bit he'd be in front of everyone.

And all the negative thoughts towards him (justified, in my opinion) don't get through the protective bubble he's got around himself.* He basks in the love of millions.

So why the mystery about why he keeps going?





*also, with an iPad stand like Uccio on his side. That has to give you strength to continue.

Risking life and limb when you've already achieved so much is odd. Typically, riders at that age seem to lose a spark, especially after suffering an injury.

More commonly, riders with the desire to continue simply cannot keep up with the younger generation. Rossi's very high raw ability in his prime meant that a Rossi past his best years is still very capable (if not as capable as a prime MM).

I think his relative lack of serious injuries also helps (two leg breaks aren't too bad for a career of that length. This is because he crashes very little, but he has been fortunate too. Compare his injury list to JL or DP, for example!). For example, JL and DP's injuries negatively affected their speed. JL's double collarbone disaster in 2013 has made him very cautious in mixed conditions. DP's virtually certain injury incurrence every time he falls off the bike (particularly after 2013) has blunted his speed too.
Mick D and MadMax like this.

Yes,I guess that's true. He hasn't become risk averse with age, which is an anomaly.

His speed at Aragon was especially odd. The guy isn't some young rider trying to fight for a factory ride, or a rider in the championship fight. His ride is pretty secure, and he'd be forgiven for being off the pace and a little cautious after a leg break - but then he was fighting for the win after qualifying on the front row. It's strange to see him risk so much when another fall could truly shatter his leg badly.
