Valentino Rossi Nine-Time World Champion announces his Retirement.
A career spanning more than a quarter of a century, the Italian has carved out a legend that will be hard to match or surpass, either on-track or off. Nine World Championships, 115 wins, and 235 podiums, and is the only competitor in history to win titles in the 125cc, 250cc, 500cc, and MotoGP™ categories, mean Rossi’s name will forever feature in the history books. But his unique brand of charisma, speed, race craft, and world domination – plus a dash of rock and roll – have made the Italian something more than a rider. The ‘Doctor’ has become an icon and an inspiration.
