Yay another title for Rossi!!!
I remember watching Rossi during his first year in the 125cc class and I said to Jeremy... "You have to see this guy. He is definitely a future champion" He laughed at me and then when he won the championship he claimed that he would not go on. Of course he did and again world champion in the 250s. Still Jeremy doubted that he would go on but again I was proved right...... Yes I can spot a champion!!!!
GO ROSSI!!!!!!!!!!!
