100 wins for Rossi

Hi everyone.

Since I was in primary school, I loves to watch the motorcycle’s racing especially FIM Grand Prix. It was really exciting to see the riders compete with each others to win the race. Really really exciting. During that time the premier class was the 500cc race. I’m one of the Wayne Rainey fan club at that time. Besides that, I use to support Tetsuya Harada in the 250cc class because he was the most talented Asian rider at that time.

Well, now its already in year of 2009. No more 500cc class race. It now called as the MotoGP class race. Right now I’m supporting Valentino Rossi which I think that he is the most stunning and talented rider in the world today. And this entry was a tribute to Valentino Rossi’s 100 wins in the motocycle racing world which he received in the Assen Circuit last Sunday. Congratulation The Doctor! You’re the best!!
