Bagnaia joins Stoner, Lorenzo, Doohan & more in #1 club

Over the past 30 years, only eight riders have had the honour of defending the greatest prize in motorcycle racing with the #1 emblazoned across the front of their machines. The Ducati Lenovo rider will become the first rider in 11 years to race with it and aims to become the first rider in a quarter of a century to defend their premier class crown with the #1. Not since Mick Doohan in 1998 has a rider managed to successfully defend their title whilst racing with the number 1, but Bagnaia will be hoping to endĀ theĀ 25-year curse. Take a look at the eight previous World Champions to race with the #1 in the premier class:.
