I just pulled this little trivia gem off motogp's site. Thought it was worth bringing here.

98 – Jorge Lorenzo’s second place finish in Australia was the 98th time he had stood on the podium in Grand Prix racing, the same number of podium finishes six-times world champion Jim Redman had during his GP career. One more podium finish for Lorenzo will take him equal with Loris Capirossi in the all-time list of GP podium finishers

Is it a coincidence that Lorenzo's number is 99? Or is that by design? Does anyone know?

Like Nicky has carries 69...(giggle, snicker) as far as I can remember thats been Lorenzo's number.....except when he wins a world championship.

That is an amazing bit of trivia too....
