  6. Can't remember. I don't recall them having nicknames like that back then, at least not ones that the average punter would know. The only one that sticks in my mind is that Kenny Roberts used to be called "King"

    Oh, and Freddie Spencer was "Fast Freddie"

    I think the nicknames started to appear once a few American riders started making an impression in Europe.
