@ aaa - To say Valentino's fans "preach hate" because someone "dares to challenge him" is tripe because it is totally not true! Obviously riders are there to "challenge" him, the same way they are there to "challenge" anybody!! That is what a race is all about!! Valentino loves to be "challenged", he loves a good battle and loves a blooming good, close race - not that we have seen much of this type of thing for a very long time mind you! Most of the so called "hate", but I would never use such a strong term, is towards people who make ludicrous, ignorant and insulting remarks towards a man who has done more than any other rider out there and doesn't deserve such venomous attacks!!!

With rare exceptions, multiple iterations of prototypes are used to progressively refine the design. A common strategy is to design, test, evaluate and then modify the design based on analysis of the prototype.

motomatters has a great artical about CRT, go check it out. i like the CRT thing, i liked the 500's 990's as well, i did not care much for the 800' just seemed to me that with the 800's there became no room for any mistakes. i 'm really excited about the future of moto gp now with the CRT projects going on.

@ Jack Mordino "Stoner fans are a tiny weeny percentage of the global motorcycle racing fraternity, the great majority of which are Rossi fans and for many reasons. They just don't all talk english like Stoner fans so they are greatly underrepresented on english forums."
Agreed. Let's put it this way- Rossi merchandise vastly outsells Stoner merchandise. Those people wouldn't support Rossi if he didn't deserve it. All those millions of number 46 wearers can't all be poor judges of a riders calibre.

@ rossi the luckiest - I don't particularly care because they didn't!! Valentino's Yamaha was seriously lacking in power compared to the Ducati. Stoner was so arrogant, he thought he was going to walk it, but Valentino used his superior talent and skill to totally embarrass Stoner who just crumbled into little pieces!!!!!!! Please don't go on with stupid "what ifs"! Stoner lost, Valentino won!! Nuff said! (Have you actually watched the Laguna Seca race?)

@Mclaren P

Take it you have not been a Crash.Net reader for a long time..

Remember MB, SG, NH, JL who were all "put down" by Rossi fans in days gone by... Yes hate is a strong word but by definition lives on this site and always has done.

We agree that no one deserves hate but this is the sad world we live in, I respect VR, MD, KS, WR, EL, BS(7), CS, CF for what they have done for Motorcycle racing. Shame others do not for the love of their hero.

One of the best races I've seen in last 20 years is the last lap 5 laps at Brands this year between Hopper and Tommy Hill.

@McLaren P

There you go, true colours come out...

So I'll join in..... Here's one from the other side of the fence, Stoner has embarrassed Rossi the whole of this year and not just one race.
