Not having what it takes, the men hire a sexy young surfer, Scot.
In 1997, Roberts stunned the racing world when he left Yamaha after more than 25 years to start his own motorcycle company.
He came back to score a second place behind Lucchinelli in Belgium, but was once again struck by misfortune when a bad case of food poisoning forced him to miss the San Marino Grand Prix.
In July 1985, Roberts won the pole position at the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race, held in Japan.
Ironically, Roberts has stated that he considers himself a dirt tracker at heart and only took up road racing because it was necessary to do so if a rider was going to compete for the Grand National championship.
Roberts then won his first-ever 500 cc Grand Prix with a win in Austria, quickly followed by two more victories in France and Italy, along with two second-place finishes in the Netherlands and Belgium.
