2001 Grand Prix motorcycle racing season

Season summaryEdit

2001 was the end of the 500 cc era in Grand Prix motorcycle racing; in 2002 the premier class would be renamed MotoGP and dominated by 4-stroke 990 cc machines. However, 2001 was the beginning of another era, that of Valentino Rossi's run of championships in the top class. His learning year past him, he won 11 races in 2001, far outdistancing his nearest competitor, Max Biaggi. Rossi and Biaggi began the season with a controversial incident at Suzuka, where Biaggi seemed to have tried to push Rossi into the dirt at 150 mph and Rossi responded two laps later with an aggressive pass and an extended middle finger. Rossi would win that race and sew-up the championship with two rounds to go. As of 2019, it was the last season where a non-factory rider won the rider championship title in the premier class.

The 500 cc Rookie of the Year award went to Shinya Nakano.[1]

As of 2018, it was the last year where a single constructor (Honda) won the championship in all three categories.
