DISCLAIMER: We love Rossi as much as you do and are extremely unhappy about his current condition, so please take this snippet in a light hearted manner.
A few days back we posted a video in which MotoGP riders Colin Edwards and Ben Spies indulge in a Texan chat and mention how difficult it is being Rossi’s teammate and why they would like to avoid being in Lorenzo’s shoes. But whats more difficult is finding a replacement for Rossi now that he has been prescribed strict bed-rest for the next few weeks. However it seems that Yamaha has found a suitable candidate for the job – in Jakarta, Indonesia. Probably this little monkey can’t ride as well as his evolved counterpart (codenamed 46) does, but we are sure the primate will surely have a few tricks up its sleeve that can give Rossi’s celebration antics a run for their money. We’ll try our best to keep you updated on what happens when the monkey decides to do away with his Fiat-Yamaha livery clad wooden, pocket bike and gets onto a YZR-M1. Stay tuned!
