MotoGP Stars as Kids; Can You Tell Who's Who?
The next generation of MotoGP world champions have all already been born. At the moment they're sharpening their skills on dirt tracks and in mini-moto. A very small number of the fastest of these kids will eventually go on to win the respect and admiration of millions.
Like them, all of today's greatest riders' careers rose rising through these same ranks, and lucky for us there's enough photographic documentation to get a glimpse of what today's fastest riders looked like as kids.
Can you identify today's racing superstars before they were won their titles?
Big thanks to the folks over at the DaiDeGas.IT Forum for making many of these photos readily available
