FIVE MEETS FIVE|3 TIMES WORLD CHAMPION!

He was 3 times  World Champion before I was even born – Dave Thorpe!

I know his name since I was a child. My father always told me that Dave Thorpe is his personal hero – 1985, 1986 and 1989 Motocross World Champion 500ccm! Actually I think there is no bigger fan, than my dad was or still is! My mum told me once, that my father wrote a letter to Mr. Thorpe, asking for an autograph, but sadly he never got a response.
Thorpe finished his career in 1993. One of the last races he competed in was held in Sittendorf/Austria. My father was there watching his hero, carrying baby Anna Larissa in the backpack! So I can say, I saw Dave Thorpe racing! 😉
Now, 23 years later I met him again and the first thing I did – asking for an autograph for my dad! This will be this years christmas present! 🙂

Thank you Dave Thorpe, for making a small dream come true, for the picture and for the compliment on my riding style!!!! 🙂
