Pick your fantasy fight

The bike racing world is currently awash with speculation and rumour about a possible dream World Superbike clash between record-breaking MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi and Aussie Troy Bayliss.

Yamaha and Ducati have both played down what would be an epic clash, and in an exclusive interview with MCN, triple WSB champion Bayliss reckons he’d step out of retirement to race Rossi for £1m.

Rossi claimed he wanted to make a one-off switch to World Superbikes having branded the series more exciting than MotoGP at the end of the 2008 campaign.
While the mouth-watering prospect of a Rossi and Bayliss duel is still fantasy at the moment, which two racers would you love to have seen fight it out together.

We’ve had the epic battles between Barry Sheene and Kenny Roberts and Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz, but which two racers would you love to have seen dice it out on the track?

Here’s a couple we’d like to have seen.

Valentino Rossi vs Giacomo Agostini
Barry Sheene vs Carl Fogarty
Mick Doohan vs Casey Stoner
