Veteran journalist, TT winner, and prolific author Mat Oxley takes a look back at Valentino Rossi's long career with regulars Steve English, Adam Wheeler, Neil Morrison, and David Emmett. The reason for the conversation is Oxley's encyclopedic new book on Rossi's career, Valentino Rossi: All His Races, covering all of Rossi's motorcycle races, from the European 250cc championship through 125, 250, 500 and MotoGP, as well as his outings at Suzuka. Together with the crew, Oxley discusses what makes Valentino Rossi special, how his outward persona differs (or not) from the Rossi behind closed doors, what made Rossi special, and how he changed the sport.
