Well,now Rossi knows that to push the bike hard enough to be competative is to risk lobbing it.Stoner could have told him that though!
Stoner often crashed out trying to win on that bike and had the piss taken out of him by Rossi fans.Now they will all come here and say that at least Rossi crashed out whilst trying!
The mind boggles sometimes.

poor judgement ?

read the post again...this and the article on gpone...

rossi apparently went at the same pace which he we went normally...he didnt push hard or something...the bike just lost the front...

senseless....the bike needs some beating if it keeps this sh*it up...

The last thing Ducati needs at this point is to keep losing opportunities like this to gather extremely important data. No one knows really how well the new bike performs. That being said, from what I've seen so far, I have a little bit of hope now for them.

Before the race today Jerry Burgess was interviewed on Australian TV by Darryl Beattie, he said that among the problems they are having is that they are not getting the feedback they need from the rider ... and that hopefully soon the penny will drop with him.
The channel 10 presenters commented that this was the first time that JB (usually very careful with what he says to the media) has openly said anything critical of Rossi.

@ Rossi

I cant understand Why the guy cant see that if he keeps doing the same things He will end up with the same results

I recall a similar remark last year @ least the Guy riding last year had podiums and wins to his name

I wonder what percentage he rates Stoner @ now???

Jeremy Burgess comment on oneHD today Was the rider needs to give back information to make changes when the penny Drops with the Rider we will be able to move forward wonder what he meant????after all he does have the greatest Developement rider in the history of motorcycle racing doesn't he??

Very Strange???

the difference between stoner crashing and Rossi crashing is that Stoner crashed trying to go for wins, Rossi crasehs trying to go for 6th place (a theoretical 8th place had speis and Jlo was fit)

Still not pushing hard enough

rossi lacked one most important experience before deciding to dare the red devil that was had to be KING OF CRASH as Casey had gained with wasnt useless or more likely ridiculous as some might have sinically said but really more than selfability exploration discovery or lesson.are you ready,Vale?RAW TALENT AND BALLS must be there conditionally!
