Winter is damn cold, yes, even in Spain. I highly dislike being cold and riding has been put aside for some time. In the meantime, I enjoy myself watching Moto GP races I have missed and classic races. One race to mention in particular is the 1994 Suzuka race where Norifumi Abe, a wild card rider, battled with the veterans Doohan and Schwantz and showed no fear. I can easily understand that this rider would have impressed a young Valentino Rossi – he was actually so inspired that he chose Rossifumi as his first nickname.
If you have time to kill, I warmly recommend the off season Moto GP pass. 24.95 Euros and you can fill day and night until the new season begins.
