Aim a Rossi Fan, and i view is comments has one rider that feel sad for not beeing strong at front thats true..!! He had been playing with the Motogp bikes for a long time and he know that the evolution of bikes will only generated bikes esay to ride like he mad Yamaha, its like F1 and generated races that sometimes really esay strange to wach, at least when was Rossi he allways make races from the Back to the front and most of the times where very exciting.. This new riders playing much more on brain at least Lorenzo and its good Job but we really feel that exciment for the 1 place Fight.. Lets see how it goes at Lemans!! Its not because Motogp bikes dont slide that the racings are beeing boring because Moto3 bikes dont slide=) and races are preety Fun.. The reality is that manufactores Like Honda and Yamaha made uge setps and it really is almost impossible for any other rider try to beat them.. Has we see from this year only one satellite Team can be close Yamaha Tech3 what a surpris

@poddy
You are pretty right mate have a look at the 3 leading riders in wsb Biaggi,Checa and Milandri what did they do in GP SFA so that shows they are the next level down from GP riders.I watched wsb at the weekend and that stupid pass at the end, when I seen the 2 riders taken out I thaught lucky it was a slow corner because if it was a fast one I dont want to think about what could have happened,and of course rossi thaught it was good that's what he was good at taking riders out eg Gibber it's amazing how quick people forget eg Simmo RIP I have followed GP for 51 yrs and I have seen some great riders loose their lives and when I here this sort of rubbish it makes me sick just grow half a brain and think about what you are saying.

If Rossi and Edwards went to wsbk, than wsbk will be more popular than motogp with 6 factory bikes & al this crt s...t. Thats a fact! Who cares about race without any pases? Who wants to watch microsoft race?

GET A GRIP PEOPLE!

Conspiracy theorists, bashers and sheer blindness on this site are unbelievable!

Have none of you seen MotoGP this season & last season & the season before... procession followed by procession followed by procession, ohh... and also only 3 podium contenders while World Superbikes has about 10 or even more and many different winners on 5 different bikes. Rossi is merely stating the obvious and hitting home what we all know MotoGP racing has become very boring not just where you people say where Rossi is racing and complaining but all the way through the field! Rossi also said "he wants to continue in MotoGP for several more years"

Just because you people hate Rossi doesn't mean you should bash him when you all know he is right and that WSBK is a much better series!

motogp is not exciting anymore with stoner lorenzo and pedrosa just following each other happy just to collect the points and no one willing to go out of their comfort zone

@Sasha,

Sasha summed it up nicely on the 2nd page of comments. Mistakes are what makes for good racing. Watch the WSBK race and you see the guys running wide, running through the grass, etc. You don't see that in MotoGP. The bikes and riders are just about near perfection. They rarely make mistakes and when they do they are very minor. I just don't get this "motogp has BECOME boring" BS. Like it ever wasn't? Did you not watch the Doohan years or the Rossi on Honda years?

It seems Rossi only likes one sided brawls. Rossi brawling with Sete at Jerez is a Good brawl. Barbara brawling with Rossi in round 1 this year is a Bad brawl, Rossi brawling with Tony Elias back in 2006 is a bad brawl. Rossi brawling with Stoner at Laguna in 2008 is a good brawl. Notice a pattern?

Crash.net has got a line wrong "I want to continue in MotoGP for one more year" when I translated it and read it on bikesport news and another website it said "I want to continue in MotoGP for several more years" crash you need to get it right!

MotoGP needs racing like World 5 riders on 4 different bikes going for the win into the last lap, not seen that in MotoGP for many years!

Yep, Rossi is right, Moto GP is boring. WSB is a far better show to watch. Moto GP days are numbered, i think WSB will become the premier class with all the manufactures focusing on it. Its far more relevent in todays world than ever before. Who goes out and buys a new bike based on what they saw in the snooze fest of Moto gp, no one, but you watch WSB and think that ZX10 looks quick, ill have one of them......
