4) Moto GP

19 April, 2007 -

From the proverbial for-what-it's-worth department anyone out there who is a motor racing fan but has yet to discover Moto GP you have GOT to check these guy's out; it makes TV viewing of any other form of motor sport like watching paint dry! These monster machines weigh just 350 lbs yet crank out 240 horsepower! The races are broadcast on The Speed Channel and they are a must for anyone who loves motor sport; eat your heart out NASCAR, this is real racing. These guys simply smoke! Rarely, if ever, mentioned in the American media the Moto GP Series features four Americans; defending World Champion, Nicky Hayden (pictured) is from Kentucky and was one of People Magazine's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors for 2006. The seven-time world champion, Italian Valentino Rossi (Leading in the current season points standings as of this post), is earning in excess of $31 million dollars this year! You heard me, THIRTY ONE MILLION; rock star lifestyle personified!
