Rossi saved Mo­togp

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Alan Oliver’s com­ments (MCN Let­ters, Jan­uary 11) are a joke. Rossi’s been a great am­bas­sador for the sport and has upped the pro­file of Mo­togp and bike­sport in gen­eral. I re­mem­ber go­ing to Don­ing­ton GP and there be­ing 18,000 spec­ta­tors. The fol­low­ing year with Rossi in the pre­mier class there were 40,000+. As for ‘spe­cial tyres’ I take it Alan means his switch to Bridge­stone to match his ri­val Stoner, there was noth­ing spe­cial about them. I would like to point out I’m not just a Rossi fan, I sup­port many other rid­ers in the same class! James Ben­nett, email
