Rossi bowls ‘em over in Jerez

Valentino Rossi's victory at Jerez yesterday gave him the perfect opportunity to undertake one of his world-renowned Fan Club celebrations.

Valentino Rossi's victory at Jerez yesterday gave him the perfect opportunity to undertake one of his world-renowned Fan Club celebrations. Pulling up on his parade lap, the five time MotoGP World Champion engaged in a small game of human bowling, knocking over members of his travelling fraternity with an imaginary ball. The final skittle was, as is always the case, teetering before falling, leaving the Italian with a magical strike.

As The Doctor explained: "I had this idea for a while and as everything was ready to do it here, it was an extra motivation to go for the win. I picked it up from the States, from American football, some team celebrated a touchdown like this, with the last pin swaying a bit and finally falling for the strike. That's neat."
