Two true World Champions who fought for the future

For the majority of us mere mortals, just winning a world title would be enough, but for two true World Champions from different decades, it was not. 12 world titles and 139 Grands Prix wins were not enough for legends Kenny Roberts and Valentino Rossi. When Marco Bezzecchi brought the Mooney VR46 Racing Team their first-ever MotoGP™ win in Argentina last week, it was the 17th time a rider from the VR46 Academy had won a Premier class Grand Prix. Four years after the Rainey crash, he set up his own Grand Prix team based in England. After winning 500cc title in 2000, Kenny Roberts Jr. made history after the Roberts family became the first Father/Son World Champions. Two true World Champions both on and off the track who cared about future.
