OK. We know what number each rider has now. Which are 4-strokes? Katoh is riding a 2-stroke, yes? Proton did not make a 4-stroke, did they? Was I asleep and wake up too fast?

Anybody know when was the last time the champ returned to the series but did not put the number 1 on his bike?



Lucky for me, it's easy to convert a 1 into a 46. It's still mostly centered on my forehead, too.

That is a darn good point! I guess I'm a little surprised that Val doesn't want that #1 on his bike.

I like that Rossi isn't using the #1 plate. He is sticking to his previous number, very cool indeed. I bet Kenny Roberts finds that insulting :( That is OK because Rossi is just going to keep spanking him and the rest this coming season. At last year's Suzuka 8 hour, Colin Edwards said that Rossi could become the greatest rider in history.

Since 500 GP no longer exists, Rossi has not yet had to actually defend a GP championship, having won the title in 125 and 250 as well.



If he, and the rc211v, are up to speed, the 2003 GP-1 class might actually find him defending the #1 plate for the first time.

The Proton is an update of the 2001 500cc triple. I did not see Leon Haslam number on the list, could of sworn he got a 500 I mean gp1 ride.
