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!

With a name like Valentino im sure he does well with the local ladys as well. LOL

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.

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,

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.

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.

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.

Hells yes it is... Those guys are seriously insane. Probably some of the craziest athletes there are.

Discovery HD had a Isle of Mann special from '09. It's soooo sick.
