I'll never forget being with Rossi, in silence, at Laguna Seca pits...
you see it's next to impossible to strike up a conversation at the
the track because Vale don't chat with fans during a race... if any of
you have ever hunted him for a pic or an autograph you know he almost
never says any thing, just nods or smiles... but right after this pic,
he went into his motorhome... well, you all know Rossi is
superstitious, and in Italy it is very BAD luck to wish some one GOOD
luck...so just as he stepped into the RV, Mary spoke to him in Italian
'in bocca al lupo' (into the mouth of the wolf)...the motorhome door
closed then opened again, Rossi peeked out, responded 'crepi il lupo'
(kill the wolf) and closed the door again... so thanks to Mary's quick
wit he spoke...
Rossi signs our autobiogrphy
2008 MotoGp winner... that is the year of Rossi's famous inside pass that rattled Stoner...
Mary and I always spectate at the Cork Screw because who ever controls the screw controls the race...
