Who is Valentino Rossi?
Valentino Rossi is a 9 times motorcycle Grand Prix champion and one of the most successful and popular morotcycle racers of all time. Born in 1979 in Tavullia in Italy, Valentino’s father, Graziano Rossi, was a motorcycle racer and the young Valentino followed in his footsteps and was racing MiniMotos and Go Karts at a young age.
Valentino began his motorcycle Grand Prix career in 1996 when he joined Aprilia to race for them in the 125cc class. In his second season Valentino secured the 125cc World Title and then moved up to the 250cc class. More success followed and Rossi claimed the 250cc World Championship in 1999.
Valentino moved to the premier class in 2000 and went on to win his first premier class World Title in 2001 for Honda. This kicked of a formidable run of form and he went on to win the World Championship for Honda in 2002 and 2003.
After becoming disillusioned with Honda Valentino Rossi made the shock move to Yamaha in 2004. Rossi wanted to prove that the rider could make a fundamental difference and it wasn’t all about the machinery they had, an accusation that was levelled at him during his time at Honda. Valentino won his first race for Yamaha, on what was seen as inferior machienery to Honda at the time. Rossi continued his winning streak and won the World Championship for Yamah in 2005 and 2005, and then again in 2008 and 2009.
Valentino Rossi left Yamaha and joined Ducati in 2011 for two unsuccessful seasons – he returned to Yamaha in 2013 and he has remained there since, narrowly missing out on another World title in 2015.
