Brave Dovi bucks trend to set record

While the world of sport enthuses about the performance of two teenage tennis players, Andrea Dovizioso bucks the trend. For the first time in the 73-year history of World Championship motorcycle racing,14 premier class Grand Prix winners lined up on the grid for the 27-lap race at Misano on Sunday. Between the two with a combined age of 77 years, they have started in 756 Grand Prix with 598 of them coming in the premier class. He won the 2016 Malaysian Grand Prix and the floodgates opened. He won the 125cc World title in 2004 and was runner-up in the 250cc Championship on two occasions in 2006 and 2007. It’s going to be a fascinating battle and without a doubt 24 times Grand Prix winner Dovizioso’s biggest ever challenge. Finally, can you name those 14 premier Grand Prix winners on the Misano grid?.
