Multiple MotoGP Champion Valentino Rossi is currently miles ahead in the Daily Telegraph's Sports Person of the Year poll with a massive 62 per cent of votes compared to tennis world number one Rafael Nadal's ten per cent.

Rossi's cause is being championed by Telegraph columnist and former England and British Lions hooker Brian Moore who says of The Doctor: "Rossi occupies in his sport the same position as Pele holds in football. For many MotoGP fans, including British, he is a demigod. I say this to put Rossi into context for those of you who do not know he is the most successful motorcycle racer ever.

"Experts always make things look easy. Riding a motorcycle is not easy, certainly much more difficult than driving a car, running, throwing or cycling. Handling a motorcycle is very technical and the consequences can be severe if you make a small error."


Moore also states that Rossi is the first rider to win back-to-back titles premier class titles for different manufacturers. Actually, it was Eddie Lawson but you must forgive Moore as having Wade Dooley shoving you from behind most weekends is enough to make anyone forgetful.
