McEnroe-Borg, Prost-Senna, Ali-Frazier, Rossi-Lorenzo…
Valentino Rossi winning a race was not news. It was expected. And yet, the Italian legend found new ways to amaze each time on the track.
His 99th win would be remembered for an ending that can only be described as remarkable. The 2009 Catalan motorcycle Grand Prix saw Rossi fend off his closest rival and teammate, Jorge Lorenzo for the victory.
Sport is at its best when the legends they create compete against one another. You don’t have to be a racing fan to appreciate how special this was.
