Top 10

Recommended Posts

Anyone fancy posting a "Top ten riders of all time" to start a real bunch of flames?

Well Cap'n baited the hook & I bit it! :D

There's been sooo many great racers since the conception of GP's in 1949.....

My Top 10 looks something like this....

1) Difficult one to nail down........kid of a toss up between Jarno Sarrinen & Rossi :unsure:

2) Agostini

3) Mike the Bike Hailwood

4) Kenny Roberts Sr.

5) Eddie Lawson

6) Fast Freddie Spencer

7) John Surtees

8) John Kocinski (Weird dude but 1 Helluva Rider!)

9) Kevin Schwantz

10) Barry Sheene

I can think of more but there's NO room left on the list! :rolleyes:

So, What's your Top 10 list look like?

Too many to choose from, but (in no real order)...

Mike Hailwood

Joey Dunlop

Kenny Roberts

Barry Sheene

Phil Read

Giacomo Agostini

Jarno Saarrinen

Ivan Mauger

Barry Briggs

Sammy Miller

All a bit obvious and from the more popular forms of bike sport perhaps, but how can you measure them all, it's got to be a subjective process :(

You know my answer! And Rossi isn't fit to be mentioned in the same breath as Hailwood....let alone Saarinen.

Could he go to Oliver's Mount in Scarborough and win 3 races in one day having never seen the course before?

No....he'd shit himself! B)

Very true Pete sadly cancer got him in the end, despite all his attempts to finish himself on bikes. That blowout at daytona?(i think it was) will be forever engraved on my mind
