Is Jorge Lorenzo Going Bald?

What better way to bring our blog back to life on the eve of the 2011 season than by answering the NUMBER 1 question burning on every MotoGP fan's lips: is 23 year old Jorge Lorenzo, the reigning World Champion, going bald? 

The rumblings started after some particularly widow peaky shots were released at Yamaha's 2011 team launch. To get to the bottom of the issue, TwitGP's Forensic Analysis Department has made this handy chart. Feel free to peruse it:

If you click it, it gets bigger.

If you ask us, he's NOT going bald. He's ALWAYS had a forehead shaped like a visor.

Thank heavens that's sorted. Now we can start racing.

  1. True. He has invented a new energy drink so he can wear a hat (when not wearing helmet) to cover his baldness.

  2. He's going bald. His head's turning into the Chupa Chup it wished it could be for contractual reasons in 2008.

  3. His hair may be getting smaller but his Rockstar hats seem to be getting BIGGER!

  4. I think he is just gradually growing taller than his hair
