Might have been as a result of the leg injuries he sustained at Assen?
There’s more than one way to go around a corner, and he used them all. I miss him!
Great photo - and a nice reminder of the extraordinarily talented JM Bayle.
I never found it in myself to forgive Capirossi for taking out Harada to win the 250 title - the fact he didn't get disqualified and so won the title was utter BS.
I'm with you.
The little c*nt also took out Aprillia's test rider at Mugello, he was so good they gave him a few GP starts but Capirossi had stated publicly after Aprillia sacking him that they would never win another race in Italy as long as he was riding, and the little c*nt just took him out.
He won his 125cc championship at Phillip Island, where the Italian riders chose to deliberately sabotage his opponent. A hollow crown if ever there was one.
I don't rate him at all.
I think Bayle was the first rider to deliberately drag an elbow; at the time I was involved with 250GP racing and asked the local champ if he'd ever done it? He said he'd tried it in practice sessions but that imperfections in the track meant input into his arm and to the steering which he didn't want.
So there's that...
Absolutely agree re Capirossi and his buddy Rossi thought it was a great laugh as well.
RE JM Bayle... 1991 won all 3 main AMA MX titles ....... 1994 top 6 250GP rider! Throw in a few early 90's Guidon D'or trophies to boot.
Talent in spades.
I can't remember to take my house keys with me but I can remember this shit.....
Troy Corser at Goodwood.
Yep , Butler & Smith ???? R90S AMAs first superbike champions with Reg Pridgmore ??? …. not completely sure of the facts as it was a far while ago
Think he had a couple of bikes at his disposal that season and wrote one off … wondering if this is the real thing or just a copy ?
A great career sadly curtailed. Was pushing Mick pretty hard in 95.
IMHO the Lucky Strike and Pepsi Suzuki 500's of that era were the best liveried bikes to ever grace a race track. The fact everyone's favorite 500GP rider was on them may have been a factor.
Rossi rode a Suzuki? Who knew?
