@ good evening

Yes my friend. They have the right to do it 'cause they already have wins, podiums and good results. And NO he has no right at all 'cause he manages to finish even behind Randy - the King of crashes - De Puniet, a CRT rider with 50 HP less than him.

And something else:
The fact that we're judging Vale doesn't make us haters. i thing we have the right to do it 'cause some of us pays cable TV's and some others pays tickets to watch a race.

nicon Casey is still in the hunt for the championship. Of course he is willing to do whatever it takes to get the best result. Rossi is in the fight for 6th place, why the hell should he risk life and limb for that.

even if he did try alot harder at this track and still would of finished in his usuall spot, you would still ridicule him. or even worse he would of crashed out with the different surface changes like most rider complained about, he already said the front closed on him twice and he saved it, so why push even harder??
its not going to work, just bring it home.

what about all the americans who bought tickets to see Hayden race, he pushed too hard and then was a no show.

its the same as when i go on car runs up the mountains with mates, i dont push past my limits coz i know if i go to hard ill end up crashing down the side of a mountain.

"finish even behind Randy - the King of crashes - De Puniet, a CRT rider with 50 HP less than him."

i believe DP didnt even finish the race so your point in invalid. yer he was .254 ahead of him in QP,
what does that mean.. nothing, the race is where it matters.

I agree with you Rabcati, although i don't think he is going to fight that much for it, like he did last year.
Ok Vale is left for Yam but that doesn't give him the right to finish behind De Puniet. He is a professional rider and we want to see him fights even for the 6th place and stop moaning all the time about the bike.
After all, his team still pays him a lot of money to do so.
With behaviors like that, the sport became boring.
That's why -))

How can anyone claim Rossi is trying or justified in cruising around like he is. He had another half of the qualifying session compared to Nicky. If he was worried about turn 13 and wanted to tip toe through there because of the other crashes as you say, thats arguable. Where do the other .9s come from? he cruised through every corner slower (safer) than the bike could easily do. that isn't something that is considered racing, even at a club level...

We could also discuss how unprofessional it is, does nothing to further bike development. give value to his employer, etc. Clearly the man's mindy, body , spirit are no longer interested in racing. he was mad at Yamaha for making him raace with Jorge before, just wait till this time around, I wonder how he'll try to play the media against Yamaha this time and what excuses there will be?

all i can say is im looking forward to seeing the end of this season and 1st day of testing in Valencia to see what lap times he will be putting down on the M1.

if he's quick, we know he still has it and its going to be a great 2013 with some awesome racing, if not, then we know he hasent got what it takes anymore..
