MotoGP: Rossi equals Hailwood with...

Rossi equals Hailwood with 76th GP win

News, 31/07/05

Valentino Rossi joined the all-time greatest podium with a thrilling last lap win in the Alice Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland at the Sachsenring.

The Gauloises Yamaha rider took advantage of a final lap miscue by race leader Sete Gibernau to vanquish his rival yet again and score the 76th win of his storied career.

The win didn’t come as a complete surprise to Rossi, who circulated on his victory lap with a flag that read, “Rossi 76, Hailwood 76, Sorry Mike,” in deference to the great Mike Hailwod. Only the greats Angel Nieto (90) and Giacomo Agostini (122) remain.

“I made a small flag to apologise to Mike Hailwood for matching his 76 wins in Grand Prix because when another rider arrives at your level it is always disappointing!” said Rossi. “Mike is one of the greatest riders ever and now I am beside him on the all-time winners’ podium which is a fantastic achievement.”
