Leasha and Valentino Rossi

In case you missed it, we wanted to let you know that Valentino Rossi won his 100th Grand Prix race this past weekend at Assen!  Although Rossi already holds a mind-boggling amount of records across the board in motorcycle racing (such as being the only rider to win World Championship titles in five different classes), 100 victories is one of his most impressive landmarks.  It makes him only the second rider to win 100 Grand Prix races, behind Giacomo Agostini (who won 122).

This Sunday, Paul and Leasha will be attending the Laguna Seca Moto GP in California.  They will have a chance to watch Rossi possibly rack up his 101st Grand Prix win (although the competition from Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner should make it a difficult race!).  Any one of those riders could walk away with the top podium spot, and while Paul will be rooting for his beloved Team Ducati, Leasha will be screaming her lungs out for Rossi (who rides for Team Yamaha).  The rivalries are fierce, and the loyalties run deep, but at the end of the day it’s just exciting to watch the top riders in the world compete.  If you have never seen a GP race before, you should definitely check it out!
