Rossi vs Lorenzo's 2009 Catalunya MotoGP battle is still just wow!

Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo's spectacular final lap battle in the 2009 Catalunya MotoGP is sheer motorsport porn... 10 years on it still gives us goosebumps!


TEAM-MATES they may have been but Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo have never been best of buddies...

Whilst Lorenzo arguably had the better of Rossi during their time together at Yamaha overall, when it came to bar-to-bar, faring bashing action Rossi was king... and really, for many MotoGP fans, the 'GOAT' is whoever wins the balls-out battle rather than the long-term points' scoring war.

Battles really don't come much more exhilarating than the 2009 Catalunya MotoGP Rossi vs Lorenzo last lap duel which even today takes our breath away even though we know how's it going to end.

If you're at work, in bed or commuting (on public transport only please) set aside five minutes to enjoy of motorsport at its finest duked out between two warriors at their best and hungriest, fuelled by the addiction of adrenaline to get one over on their biggest rival.
