Thats for sure, Lorenzo rode brave race. He's a tough little SOB and he never gives up. It's that kind of mental tuffness that makes multipal and great champions.

For him to be praised by KK Horhay must be truly a distinguished rider.

As for that one Rossi guy, nobody even talk about him nowadays. Even if he's still with Yamaha, I don't think KK would even mention his name in the same breadth as Horhay. He is just not in the same class as bulldog Horhay.

I think after takin a 100 mph highside and
landin on ur back, then just a couple hrs later
run the fastest time of any bike for the weekend
at 1'21.202 to take the pole, faster than the track
race record of 1'21.376, and then the next day run
1st place for 26 laps, is testament to Lorenzo's
championship level character. Thats a role model.
I am not worthy.

Been a fan of Jorge since his 125 days. Since 2006 I have been telling anyone who will listen that he will be a mutiple MotoGP champion. Even as a fan of Jorge, it is really nice to see other riders in the runnning this year. Lets hope Rossi can get that Duke up to the front soon. Going to be a struggle to get upto stoners points tally, but it is do'able and no racer gives up until the championship is wrapped up.

JL was lucky to have ridden the yamaha develop by Rossi , as we all can see that till now he is only got 2 wins compare to last year he has got 7 to 8 win by now ! The race that Rossi brought down stoner wouldn't have won by him if not for the incident . Meaning to say that he actually only score just 1 win for the 10 rounds. I doubt so he will win the title this year ! Stoner will definitely win this year !

@Paul,
How many times does it have to be said? IF means ZERO when you talk about racing. Because IF didn't happen. IF, BUT, COULD HAVE, WOULD HAVE.....all that mean squat in racing. Despite what argument you may think you can muster using any of those words, it's not a valid one nor will it ever be.

@rotsa ruck,
I disagree. For sure IF means ZERO in terms of results but you cannot deny that Lorenzo got away with a lucky win. In Jerez, Stoner led the sessions all weekend while Lorenzo struggled. Lorenzo got lucky, and luck is part of racing. A win is a win so good for Lorenzo. He should thank Rossi and more importantly, the rain.

I've watch Jorge sinds 250cc and i like him to.
Though rider a fighter, precies rider.
The championchip aint over yet but honda realy has a great bike probably better then the M1 because of the gearbox and that atomic bomb engine!

The straight are almost unfair.. :)

Did nobody else have a big grin reading this???? ""He's like a bulldog wrapped around your ankle".

Is that a jaw-locked-on bulldog

or a leg-dry-humping bulldog?

Mr Lorenzo, which one are you!? :D
