So what does the funniest 8-time world champion in motorcycle racing history do as an encore following his uncharacteristic crash at the Indy GP? He acknowledges his dumb-ass move by painting a donkey on his helmet for last week's GP at San Marino, Italy (his "home track"), and proceeds to win going away of course. What will become of MotoGP when Valentino "The Doctor" Rossi eventually moves on? Sure, there are riders with nearly the talent (and in Lorenzo's case, perhaps just as much), but none with the combination of talent, nerve and transcendent personality. The racing will be just as good or better, but the spectacle will become...well, less spectacular. Much like boxing has been without Ali.
