Final laps of the Czech 125GP from 1997
Watch the closing stages of the 1997 Brno 125GP, the now unforgettable fluorescent number 46 of a young Valentino Rossi darts in and out of the pack grabbing and creating passing opportunities.
It wasn't a desired result for the legend in the making, finishing third, but Rossi stamped his authority on the 1997 season winning a 11 out of the 15 races.
Is another rider's future being cast in stone, with the young Marc Marquez performing similar feats at the moment?
Right well - that class isn't exciting enough - we'd better replace these bikes with overweight underpowered 4-strokes and call it MotoGP division 3 Rovers . . .
and if the racing is no good they can watch the paint dry . . .
