Gotta love Vale...Hez told the fact, WSBK is much more excitin than motogp at the moment, at the same time he knws this comment will piss off casey and his fans. So there u go...Vale's way of mixing mind games with business and pleasure...expect Casey to react...

I have on board footage as proof, no PS3 here, I was out on a blast last night, on some really challenging B roads. I'm no arm chair critic! For the love of the sport! We're all back to Germany & the Nurburgring after the Assen GP round, there's nothing like it! I prefer it to the Isle of Man as I'm not brill with heights!!

I like watch WSBK cuz it reminds me of local Club racing but with money.

Its all Crash or Splash, Bin it and Bin it again
Pass the ball to me and I'll pass it back

Sorry, its a retirement home for ex-gp riders or riders who can never make it to Motogp, nothing to see that you can't see at your local track on any given SUNDAY.

If you think Motogp is boring it could be cuz all you want to see is the Crash & Splash not the skill that motogp guys show us each race.

Anyway, move along, nothing for Rossi to moan about here any more

Yes, the WSBK round at Donnington was a ding dong battle and great racing.

But then I really enjoyed MotoGP at Jerez, a game of chess, a master class of consistency from the two greatest riders of the last few years.

Is that the difference? Swiss Watch precision of Jeweled machines vs. the raw, knuckle dragging thuggery of modified roadbikes....

Biaggi will be excited!

If i could speculate with fantasy, 2013 will be rossi n ducati in wsbk. Honda n Yamaha will be gone to wsbk too n it will be CRTGP. But as Shasha pointed out, it will be boring too with riders making very few mistakes and bikes become flawless (except Ducati) like what they have right now in motogp.

sorry mate but I dont think Stoner, Lorenzo or Pedrosa really don't care about Rossi any more. They (like some on here) just laugh every time the GOAT opens his month.

Now if he was trying to win at all cost, then he would have eaten them by now and this comment would destroy them. But alas the only thing Rossi is eating in large volume is humble pie.

You would think that at his age he would know not to speak with this mouth full

I don't want him in the WSB paddock, it would ruin the openess of the place, it would end up getting locked down like MotoGP where access to the riders is overly restrictive.
I'd rather he got a good bike in GP and stayed there or went over to 4 wheels.
This perspective is purely from someone who likes to go to WSB, pay 20 quid for a paddock pass for the weekend and have a good mooch about..that would defo go if he came to WSB

@Poddy...yep..u r right mate. He is eating humble pie for all the pain he had given to Casey when he was in ducati. But Vale as always has a backup plan, u see, he has those 9 titles to fall back upon. Vale will alwayz make casey feel that how much ever he wins he wont be able to become the greatest like Vale. Watch out for this coloumn....Casey will react.
