Kenny Roberts hasn't swung a leg over a race bike in anger in a long time, but tonight Valentino Rossi, Eddie Lawson, and Giacomo Agostini were left sucking his exhaust in our poll to pick the greatest 500cc/MotoGP rider of all time. The King survived several rounds of voting that included greats like Mike Hailwood, Geoff Duke, Barry Sheene, Freddie Spencer, Randy Mamola, Mick Doohan, Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey, and Phil Read. KR beat them all.
So our congratulations to Kenny Roberts. The old man's still got it.
