The TOP 10 500cc / MotoGP Champions of all time
« on: August 23, 2014, 06:16:14 pm »
Here's an article to get GP fans arguing!

(Hopefully over a few favorite drinks after a good ride!  :) )

The TOP 10 500cc / MotoGP Champions of all time!


This Motorcycle.com article attempts to rank the top premier class motorcycle road racing World Champions since the class's inception in 1949. I might quibble over the rankings but I think the nominees are pretty spot on.  One nice feature of this list is that the riders from the 50's and 60's get their due unlike most such articles which only really consider recent riders.

So, here's the list and I'm looking forward to hearing reactions from the group.  Do you agree with Motorcycle.com's list?  (HINT: The top 2 guys are Italian.)
