High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The 2004 Grand Prix
motorcycle racing season was the 56th F.I.M. Road racing World
Championship season. At the end of 2003, HRC and Valentino Rossi
had parted ways, and HRC held Rossi to the letter of their contract
which stipulated he could not ride another manufacturer's machine
until December 31, 2003. Rossi's move to Yamaha, therefore, was a
gamble on a manufacturer that hadn't had a world champion in 10
years. Rossi won the first round of the season and lay to rest
doubts about whether the rider or the motorcycle was more important
when he achieved what no rider since Eddie Lawson had done in the
history of the premier-class: he won back-to- back championships on
different marques, Honda in 2003 and Yamaha in 2004.
