The Mick Doohan Story + Video
In Australia, and certainly many other places, Mick Doohan is a motorcycle racing legend. With five consecutive 500cc World Championships under his belt, Doohan was a fierce competitor. However, Doohan’s career wasn’t without some major injuries and accidents, one of which nearly took his life. Since retiring after another major accident in 1999 (which paved the way for one Valentino Rossi), Doohan has seemingly been out of the public eye. At least outside of Australia. However, that’s not to say the man has slowed down any. In this profile piece, we learn all about Doohan’s career in racing and the things he’s been involved with away from the track.
