Dr. Rossi has done it again

Valentino Rossi is the famous Italian professional motorcycle racer and his fans call him “The Doctor” (Il Dottore). He is one of the most successful motorcycle racers of all time and recently he won the Grand Prix of Japan and claimed his sixth MotoGP world championship. Well, congratulations Dr. Rossi.

From Wikipedia…
Since his dominance in 500 cc and MotoGP, Rossi has used the nickname “The Doctor.” This has been attributed to his “cold and clinical dismantling of his opponents” as well as his cool and calm composure in racing compared to his frenetic days in 125 cc and 250 cc where his performance was erratic and dangerous, resulting in numerous crashes. There are two theories as to why Rossi is entitled “The Doctor”, one is Rossi adopted the nickname upon having earned a degree, which in Italy entitles one to use the title “Doctor”. Another, as spoken by Graziano himself, “The Doctor because, I don’t think there is a particular reason, but it’s beautiful, and is important, The Doctor. And in Italy, The Doctor is a name you give to someone for respect, it’s very important, The Doctor… important”. Although Valentino often jokes that the name arrived because in Italy, Rossi is a very common surname for Doctors.

Watch The Doctor ride….
