Valentino Rossi Moto GP career on the line?


We at Easy Gap Insurance like to cater for all of our readers and this news topic is hard to miss for those interested in Motorsport and Motorbikes , that story is of course the story of Valentino Rossi finishing his career.


Valentino Rossi has become one of the most successful ever riders to get on a Moto GP bike and do what he does best. He has one of the biggest fan bases ever recalled in history of any sport, and has absolute passion for what he does, week in and week out. But regardless of all of these accomplishments in his long career, the future of his career is indeed now in question, and this is not just rumour or speculation from anybody this is what has come directly from the mouth of Rossi himself.


Six races to decide it all for Rossi


In a statement to fans and media alike this past week, the current Yamaha team rider stated that he will judge the future of his career on the first six races of the Moto GP world championship in 2014. The 34 year old rider over his 17 years racing a motorbike has won world championships in all of, Moto 3, Moto 2 and the Moto GP world championships and has a record number of 183 podium finishes more than most riders in history as a whole. Over the past few years the Yamaha team rider has had a couple of wins here and there but nothing much has been happening for him lately in terms of racing a motorbike.


He has worked hard to achieve success since returning to the Yamaha racing team from Ducati where the motorbike failed him, and as recent as few weeks ago he had to release his crew chief of many years Gerry Burgess, in order to create his own race team of mechanics in order to try and help boost his career back to something it once was.


Rossi just not a challenge for today’s best and brightest ?


With the emergence of great new riders in the racing championships, such as Rossi’s team mate Jorge Lorenzo, and Honda riders, Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez, the competition and challenge has become quite strong over recent years for the podium finish every racer destines their sights on at the beginning on the year. But the question a lot of fans have been asking for a while now is, does the Yamaha rider have the skills to keep up with this generation of motorbike racers?


The man himself has stated that he wants to continue racing as it is his passion, but only if he can finish amongst the top three throughout next season and keep the competition fierce. There is not a doubt in anybody’s mind that he is one of the most, if not the most successful racer in motorbike racing history, but will we see the career of Valentino Rossi, come to an end next season?
