The Death of an Angel – Ride In Peace

90 Grands Prix, 139 podiums and 12 + 1 world titles are just numbers, facts on the life of someone who was better known for passion rather than facts.

For the kids in the 80’s like me, Angel Nieto was already a legend. We didn’t see him struggling to get there, we only saw him on his champion pedestal, but it was a long way to the top for him.

We used to look up to him the same way we would with Superman or Rambo somebody invincible we would just take for granted in the sense we believed nothing could ever happen to him.
