Dr. Claudio Costa of the Clinica Mobile and son of original Imola 200 promoter, Checco Costa, was the honorary starter. When I returned to the starting line after the warm-up lap, I was in full déjà vu mode. Länsivuori, Smith, Agostini and Baker were on the front row, and I lined up on the inside of Row 2. Mentally, I was back in the moment; it was so cool to be on the grid again with many of the same riders I had raced with back in the day. Some, like Agostini, were already legends when I raced against them. Others, like Baker, had their best days still ahead of them.
