    Who is the greatest?

    Who is the greatest motorcycle GP rider ever?
    Agostini? Doohan? Duke? Gardner? Hailwood? Lawson? Rainey? Read? Redman? Roberts? Rossi? Schwantz? Sheene? Spencer? Surtees? Someone else?
    To my mind there are two contenders who stand head and shoulders above the rest, both Italians, Giacomo Agostini and Valentino Rossi.
    In the premier class Rossi so far has 77 wins to Agostinis 68 wins and 128 Podiums to Agos 88 Podiums. In terms of Premier Championships, Rossi trails Ago with seven to Agos eight but then who would bet against Rossi doing it at least once more to equalise the score?
    In terms of Podiums across all classes Rossi leads Ago with 164 Podium positions to Agos 159 and with 103 wins in all classes Rossi is fast catching Agos record of 122 wins.
    The only stat that Rossi has a mountain to climb to equal Ago is the across the classes Championship wins, Ago won eight Premier (500cc) Championships plus seven 350cc Championships to give him an incredible total of fifteen compared to Rossis (so far) nine Championships.
    So, whos the most talented rider ever to swing a leg over a GP bike?

    I thought that was why there is an 'On topic' section and a 'Chat' section
