One of the most successful motorcycle racers of all time, Valentino Rossi began riding at a very young age and showcased his natural talent through Karting. He grew up competing in Kart competitions and won numerous titles going through the ranks up to the national level. However, considering the high cost of racing karts then led him to shift his career exclusively towards minimoto racing. With continuous success, Valentino graduated to the premier class in the year 2000 and immediately began to dominate the racing circuit. In 2001, he won his first MotoGP World Championship and then continued to defend his title over the next four consecutive years.
After an unfortunate crash in 2006, he lost his title for the first time and also managed to finish only third overall in the follow-up year. Committed to win back his title, Rossi continued his efforts and finally regained his MotoGP World Championship in 2008 and also retained it in 2009. Although from that year onwards he hasn’t regained that title again but has continued to hold top positions in overall rankings. Lastly, moving towards the personal life of Valentino Rossi, he is yet to get married officially but over the years has remained in several short-lived relationships.
