Valentino Rossi Roars into 2015!
Valentino Rossi is a name that transcends the sport that he competes in, much like David Beckham is to football. He's a household name that everybody knows - many of whom have most likely never seen him race! Not only a fan favourite but a hero to many a rider, VR46 has recently been reminding the world that he's still got it.
It is fair to say that if you were to have asked at the start of 2015 how Rossi was likely to fare in the MotoGP Championship, even the Rossi fan club would have most likely painted a bleaker picture to what we have witnessed in the first three races.
Enjoying victories in Qatar and Argentina, Rossi is currently sitting top of the Championship by six points and has repeatedly amazed and delighted spectators. In Argentina last week he managed to come back from 8th position on the grid and chase down current Champion Marc Marquez who had created a four second gap. It was in that race that Rossi demonstrated as to why he is regarded as one of the greats, his grit and determination was evident, every spectator knew they were witnessing something special. Marquez currently sits 30 points behind 'The Doctor' in 5th position, however still remains favourite to win the overall series.
Next week Rossi will no doubt be hoping to add a third win to his excellent start to the year at Jerez, a circuit where he has clinched victory an impressive eight times, his last in 2009. With his current form it would be a brave man to bet against him!
