MotoGP star Valentino Rossi ended years of quiet paddock rumors today, when he came out as openly heterosexual.
|Although questioning Rossi's sexual orientation has, in the past, resulted in media outlets being denied accreditation by Dorna, some journalists have recently come right out, declaring that Rossi is a practicing heterosexual.|
"I guess the confusion may have come when, in the last few years, I said 'I hate the straights'," Rossi said, laughing off the idea that he was gay in his typical style. "But honestly, that was only because the Ducati was down on top speed."
|Rossi brusquely dismissed the notion that his recent acquisition of a Harley-Davidson meant that he was gay.|
Rossi said that he decided to come out because, at this point in his career he's looking towards his racing legacy, and he wants to be sure that he's remembered for who he really is.
With that, he ushered his hot girlfriend into his motorhome which, we note, has recently acquired an "If this van is rockin', don't bother knockin'" bumper sticker.
Although MotoGP fans are not as openly heterosexual as, say, Nascar fans, the news that Rossi is straight has quickly spread amongst straight fans.
"That Rossi post stirred my loins," wrote Sean A. "Now that I know he's one of us, I'm an even bigger fan."
