First he dominates all things bike in Moto GP. What does he do for fun? Easy, he kicks ass playing around in an F1 Ferrari! <BR> <BR><a href="http://formulaone.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/21/rossi-completes-ferrari-test-on-high-just-misses-lap-record/" target="_blank">http://formulaone.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/21/rossi-completes-ferrari-test-on-high-just-misses-lap-record/</a> <BR> <BR>The Goat is one amazing dude!

With a name like Valentino im sure he does well with the local ladys as well. LOL <BR> <BR>I saw the Isle of mann race on TV. They caught up with Valentino, He was watching the race as a spectator from the side of the road. I guess he has his eye on that race. Pretty crazy IMO.

As far as I remember from his interview he thinks the Isle of Man guys are nuts. I couldn't agree more. G, if we ever see him run that race competitvely I'll buy you a case of Corona. <BR> <BR>He's a speedy guy, though. That stuff runs in your blood. Remember Schumacher did the same thing. He rode a Moto GP bike and wasn't too far off the pace, either. IMO that's a harder transition. Those Moto GP guys have nads of iron.

G, <BR> <BR>Rossi is rumored to bat for the other team. Don't know if it's true or not but you never see him with any of the GP chicken heads. <BR> <BR>The dude is a phenom on a bike. He's won a championship in just about every cc class there is. Watch him sometime if you get a chance. The crap he pulls off against his opponents is amazing. <BR> <BR>As for Isle of Man, Rossi rode the course with one of the legends just to check it out. After taking a lap around the island he commented that the guys who do it are out of their minds. Besides, isn't it a prerequisite for those riders to have f'd up crooked teeth. Didn't see one of them with a decent grill.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

Hells yes it is... Those guys are seriously insane. Probably some of the craziest athletes there are. <BR> <BR>Discovery HD had a Isle of Mann special from '09. It's soooo sick.
