The australian rider won five consecutive World Championships in Top Class.
The NSR500 bike was difficult to tame, and only a few riders managed to break it in. Doohan was able to, and with it gave us one of the golden eras of motorcycling.

Present and past races
When I was competing, some races were very aggressive – because we were there to win. You’re riding at the limit. These are races! You're not going to let the others win, which is why sometimes, contact is inevitableMick Doohan
Working with Honda
For me, working with Honda was a fantastic experience. They built a platform which allowed me to win. I didn’t need any more motivation to keep riding year after year, as long as they could guarantee their commitment to me to keep trying, improving, and bringing me what I neededMick Doohan
Doohan started off his career with the Repsol Honda Team on the best possible foot: he obtained a great victory in the first GP in his home country, in 1995.
From the Italian GP in '95 to the Indonesian GP in 1997, Doohan managed to score in each race – a total of 37 – a record that remains unbeaten today.
He continues to hold records in the top 5 for the Top Class in wins (3rd), podiums (4th), pole positions (1st), fastest laps (4th), and score (4th).
