There once was a point in time when motor racing icon Valentino Rossi was contemplating a move to the World Superbike Championship once his time at MotoGP was up. The plan was for the Doctor to make that transition, spend a few seasons in the series, and then hang up his racing boots. But plans don’t always go as people would hope and this one is a perfect example of what might have been had Rossi switched series.

Unfortunately, that’s not happening anymore because the six-time MotoGP world champion isn’t keen on making the jump anymore. During a recent press event for personal sponsor, Danes, Rossi made it clear what his plans are for the remaining years of his career, telling everybody that his preference now is to “concentrate on the premier class (MotoGP), stay as long as possible, and then retire.”

I know some people who had hoped to see Rossi race in the WSBK will be disappointed to here this, but it really makes a lot of sense when you consider that MotoGP is really where he turned himself into a hotshot prospect into a global icon who is considered as the best ever in what he does.

If he can add a seventh MotoGP title to his name and do it five years after winning his last title, it would really cement his status as the greatest MotoGP rider in history.
