Well, may be he has become a crying baby for a few "tough" guys on this forum who think they know it all, and few more idiots who know nothing about bike racing ,but, I'm confident that he will be back and win another WC on the Duc before retiring.

Go Rossi.

And I don't buy his shirts and hats....

WOW, torn tendons and still able to savage a 240 BHP beast around!!! No wonder Mariusz Pudzianowski gave up the Worlds strongest man thing knowing that this super hero was looking for another challenge...

If he's as strong as the article sudgests he should "tear" that junior top lip growth off his best "Mates" top lip. 14 yr old boys would be proud of Uccio's teenage 'tache.

I don't doubt he had to 'grit his teeth' and good on him for pushing through.
Thing is,in Valencia I reckon Dani and Ben 'gritted' harder,but don't need nor want the...as Rossi put it.. 'fanatical support'...Guess he recognises the mindset of his 'fanboy club'. Plays to it damn well.
Nevertheless I hope he's back to 100% come Sepang testing.
Sincerely,believe it or not.

I realise that it's against the law and punishable by handbagging to be beyond caring about this man's shoulder any more but.....

Will there be a DVD/Bluray release of the operation so his more gullib....I'm sorry, devoted fans can admire his fortitude in the face of massive adversity in the comfort of their own homes? Blatant commercialism is about all the saga of this injury is missing.

And how bad must his doctors be to still have missed apparently bad, debilitating damage when they assessed and treated it all the times before he raced this year? What did they scan it with, a box brownie?

Still, all the best Mr Rossi. I hope its all better soon and you can talk about something else.

,,and the excuses keep on coming. It's amazing how the shoulder didn't bother him when he won. It only bothered him when he was the second fastest Yamaha rider. Don't you *****s know a public relations spin when you hear it. Yes his shoulder was damaged but do we really need to keep making excuses for VR just getting older and slower. The only thing more lame than this story is the pathetic responses here from the relieved cry-babies who need to know the answer of the universe,,,, ready,,? Why did Valentino not win the 2010 championship? (insert dramatic music) Some of you people need a life.
OH, and get well soon VR,, so there won't be any excuses for next year, when you finish 3rd. Oh wait, the Duc will be the new excuse.

What does Marius Pudzianowksi have to do with bike racing?
Pudzi has enough muscle around the shoulder to support, but lifting heavy ass weights has nothing to do with riding fast on a bike.
And I'm not going to speak about anabolic steroids and strongman competions.....
If Ronnie Coleman didn't tear his latisimus dorsi he would have won the Mr. Olympia in '09 doooooooooh

For the Rossi haters Why do u all need to make your point about VR's skills? I'm just curious who will start the discussion that VR got his championships because Carmelo Ezpeleta is a fanboy of Rossi.....

You're all pathetic and the whinging that you all do has nothing to do with being a fan of the sport....
