celebrating 40+ years of motorcycling

Ages of MotoGp riders.

On one of the forums I inhabit the discussion arose about how old MotoGp riders are and it prompted me to do a little research. Not hard to find the facts, of course, but they do make some interesting reading. Here’s the list.

Loris Capirossi 35
Colin Edwards 35
Valentino Rossi  30
James Toseland 28
Randy de Puniet  28

Gabor Talmacsi 28
Nicky Hayden 27
Chris Vermeulen, Mika Kallio, Tony Elias, Marco Melandri, all 26
Alex de Angelis 25
Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner, Andrea Dovizioso, all 23
Jorge Lorenzo 21
Nicola Canepa 20

If you average that out, that makes an average age of 26.47 years, an amazing statistic.
