Rossi: Chicken and the Egg

Thought y'all might find this interesting...

Valentino Rossi chicken and egg
Tony Russo
10/25/2009

As with many of Valentino Rossi's post-victory celebrations, this year's 2009 MotoGP Championship winning chicken and egg stunt in Sepang has some deeper more humorous meaning. Valentino Rossi conducted his chicken and egg act after his final 2009 race victory as he pulled his Yamaha M1 off the Sepang track to meet his awaiting fan club and fan club president. The fan club president presented Rossi with a tee shirt to wear, a live chicken wearing what appeared to be a motorcycle helmet and an egg stamped with the number 9.

Rossi first removed his nose guard, racing helmet, and soaking wet gloves as all the other riders rode past and headed for the pits. Valentino quickly put on the tee shirt over his racing leathers, grabbed hold of the egg and began posing for pictures with the chicken.

So what's the meaning of this celebration?

Well according to Valentino Rossi, in Italy it is said that an old chicken (hen) makes good soup but that an old chicken (hen) can no longer lay eggs. Obviously, Valentino Rossi's main competitors are much younger than him (Jorge Lorenzo 22 and Casey Stoner 24) at the ripe old age of 30. Valentino Rossi said, "I am like the old chicken (hen) - 30 years now - but I have made another egg!" He went on to say "That's nine (eggs)!" For those who have been following Rossi for the past 13 years, this is his clever way of poking fun back at his rivals.

Here is the rest of the article... http://www.ultimatemotorcycling.com/...si_Chicken_Egg

Rossi is the most talented rider ever so far.

That was crazy riding in the wet like they did.


BTW, did y'all catch the nonstop action of the 250cc race? That was the best race all season.

You know the guy is my favorite racer. He is not only fast but he has got character and is funny. Spies is fast and I am glad he won superbike for texas but he is one of the dryest racers I have ever seen.

One of Rossi's old nicknames is "The Chihuahua". If you don't get it, just look at his face for a minute......there, makes sense now doesn't it?

this is what Wiki says
Quote:
. The text on his helmet refers to the name of his group of friends: "The Tribe of the Chihuahua," and the letters WLF on his leathers stand for "Viva La Figa," Italian for "Long Live *****." He has so far escaped any sanctions or ultimatums that he remove the letters because the "W" in "WLF" represents the two "V"s in "ViVa". Equally obvious is his success at escaping any disciplinary action from the FIM or Dorna for having the letters so brazenly on the front neck area of his leathers. He traditionally also incorporates his favorite color (fluorescent yellow) into his leather designs. Though Rossi won the MotoGP title seven times he never put the number 1 on his motorcycle representing the World Champion, instead staying with his famous "46". But Rossi has worn the #1 reserved for the reigning World Champion on the shoulder of his racing leathers.

Spies is a riot compared to Casey Stoner.
