well, i can tell you that his bike is set up for two front breaks and he's only using one. it looks like it should be an italian bike (colors), but can i guess tz350?

the rider...hmmm....some guy who is responsible valentino rossi. not getting into gp's, it's just this cat's fault that rossi is here to dominate.

It's an Italian GP bike.
Actually the picture is also taken at a GP race, which means he is a GP rider!
And, yes, HE is responsible for Valentino
His surname is also Rossi and his number is 46, so who is he?

it's funny, i never saw him race, but i saw an article where 15 or so racers listed who they were most influenced by and he made about 3 or 4 of their lists (including valentino's).

pretty impressive. doohan, schwant, v. rossi and several others were included in the article.

btw, i knew it was valentino's dad, just couldn't remember his first name.
