The Doctor has just ended his long career in the world of grand prix motorcycle racing. Rossi underwent his last race at the MotoGP Valencia 2021, Sunday (14/11) yesterday.
The hubbub of Valentino Rossi’s final moment was not only physically present on the Ricardo Tormo Circuit track. A number of celebrities were also “presented” virtually to pay tribute. Including Keanu Reeves.
Previously, the John Wick actor had also spoken about Valentino Rossi. This is what Keanu Reeves said when asked Marca who was his favorite MotoGP rider, mid 2017.
“I have several (favourites), for various reasons. (Marc) Marquez is very brave and tenacious like a lion; Rossi is intelligent and technically extraordinary, also still brave to compete,” he said as reported by MotoGP.com.
“From Jorge (Lorenzo) I admire his smooth ride. I also like (Dani) Pedrosa, I admire the way he competes with the young riders. (Maverick) Vinales and (Andrea) Iannone are interesting for the future. I can’t choose one of them.”
