Congratulations Valentino Rossi, MotoGP Champion 2004!

I don’t know what kind of following there is for MotoGP amongst the developer community, but since motorcycle racing is one of my hobbies it’s my favorite sport to watch. Valentino Rossi has just clinched the 2004 championship over rival Sete Gibernau in an AMAZING race at Phillip Island. Rossi only needed to place second and could have just sat back and settled, but he’s such a warrior that he fought with Gibernau to wrestle the GP win away in the very last lap. Absolutely amazing!

Rossi, only 25, has won the past three championships. At the end of last year he did something that shocked the MotoGP world: he jumped ship from Honda to Yamaha. Rossi is now only the second champion to switch manufacturers and win championships back to back, the only other being Eddie Lawson.
