What's "The Rossi"? A dance move?

If it is a dance move, it's got to be one that totally owns every other dance move.....because that's Rossi's style.

anyone know what the Rossi is doing when he does that? I've seen a few other riders do that too (Pedrosa), but usually it's with their left leg. Repositioning their foot after shifting? I watched Pedrosa do that lap after lap a year or two ago, and was like, "WTF??"

so yeah...anyone know WTF the purpose of that is? Or is it just for show?

I've wondered the same thing. Maybe these guys have been banged up so badly in the past it's a way to ease up on the joints briefly to keep the aches down and the concentration up during the race?

I heard a commentator in a recent motogp race say it's a way to rebalance their body before going into a turn, kinda like how squirrels do with their tail when they walk down power lines.
