Dubbed The Greatest of All Time, or simply, the GOAT, Valentino Rossi is a living legend in the world of MotoGP. Fans can’t get enough of him, and frankly, neither can we. Thankfully, Rossi is also sponsored by Monster Energy drinks, who have funded the making of a five-part series entitled: Valentino Rossi: The Doctor. What’s it all about? Read the description below, straight from Monster Energy’s Youtube page, then keep scrolling to see the first episode.
‘The Greatest of All-Time’ is the first of five episodes from the Valentino Rossi: The Doctor Series and examines the appeal and reach of arguably the fastest and most popular motorcycle racer in the history of Grand Prix and MotoGP. Opinions and insight are provided by Valentino himself plus Colin Edwards as well as the Italian’s inner circle and from the close-knit community back in his hometown of Tavullia.
What makes an icon? What causes people to utter the words ‘the greatest’ when it comes to the inescapable and irrepressible ‘46′? This first chapter attempts to dive into these questions and more with exclusive and special opinions on Valentino’s career, character and two-decade global impact and burgeoning legacy. Episode 2 – Racing Mugello will be released at the end of May 2016. The Series will continue by visiting his Ranch, business empire and focus on the man behind the myth.
