Motorsport legend from Australia, Mick Doohan made his professional debut in 1989 riding for Team Honda. He would go on to win 5 consecutive Championships between 1994 and 1998 - a feat which was earlier only accomplished by Giacomo Agostini.

In a 10-year MotoGP career, Doohan won 54 races and collected a total of 2283 Championship points. Glory came at a price for Doohan as he suffered numerous injuries in his carer including the one which ended his career.

In his career, he had his finger attached, almost lost a leg, broke his collarbone and wrist. Following his career-ending crash in Jerez, Doohan had to endure a slow and frustrating rehabilitation period.

His most dominant season was the 1997 season where he won a total of 12 races from 12 pole position starts and finished with a record aggregate of 340 points. The most successful MotoGP rider from Australian stood on the podium 95 times.
