Legendary MotoGP mechanic Alex Briggs, Doohan and Rossi is on the market

Alex Briggs is on the market. One of the legendary mechanics in the paddock and part of the legendary team that accompanied Mick Doohan’s entire career, as well as that of Valentino Rossi, whom he affectionately called “The Rider”. A driver with a capital “R”.

Alex – who invented a very popular post on Twitter with daily excerpts from the dialogues between the team members during their transfer from the hotel to the race track – will not follow Rossi in his new adventure in Petronas and has been laid off by Yamaha.

“You may have heard the news that I won’t follow the rider to Petronas next year. While I wanted to see his career and he was trying to make it happen, it wasn’t what the Petronas team was up to.

I’ve also known since Jerez that there will be no place for me on the Monster Factory team next year.
I am a free agent now and would consider offers but will most likely be staying in Australia next year. “

Since the worst is a sin, but is often properly understood, this could be yet another sign of the decline that has been occurring at Yamaha. As we all know, the former Burgeess team was particularly expensive, and their contracts included business class travel to and from Australia. Certainly not a useless advantage given these men’s professional commitments.
