26Daijiro Kato

He would have been Rossi's first serious challenge, long before Stoner and Lorenzo... Kato had it all to win MotoGP races and maybe even the championship. Bloody fast and smooth at the same time with a killer instinct. Great rider, sadly missed. #74 forever.

It's a shame he died in 2003, he could be Rossi's challenger when VR46 was in his prime!

Best Japanese Moterbiker ever lived to this day!

Miss you Kato!

27Sete Gibernau

First rider who challenged Rossi

Far a stronger rival for rossi than lorenzo marquez or pedrosa

28Marco Melandri
29Geoffe Duke

6 titles and one of the original pioneers. - asphaltpilot

30Freddie Spencer

Loved his style. Injuries and maybe burnout cut his gp career short but he did it well while it lasted. True gentleman.
