Rossi once again showed he is still hungry for podiums even after a terrible two seasons. When the huge gap between machines is taken away by the weather, Rossi and a few others show the bare skills needed to ride at this level. All in all a great show of Moto GP today. Next year Rossi will not have to wait for it to rain to compete, he will be riding the wheels of the M1 and going for his 10th title!! Roll on 2013!

"Nice new bag of excuses - "problems with my visor fogging" Its always something, but not him. Posted by GoDani"
You obviously have never ridden a bike in torrential rain, at least, not a bike with an engine. Do you even own a motorcycle? If you did you would know the extent which riders go to to avoid and/or clear visor fogging, either racing or touring or commuting. And you would also know that despite all those measures, fogging still occurs and only a fool would continue at full pace when he couldn't see properly.

@the truth hurts you must have a foggy memory because if you were watching the race (I assume you were, or maybe you weren't, maybe you're trolling) Rossi was shown on T.V. adjusting his visor. It's not an excuse it's something that happened, stop bashing just because you HATE the guy.

@Slow, old & exposed ohh great this guy's back, he never says anything constructive, I guess he's found his yellow hatred glasses and has now decided to post nothing but negative comments about Rossi.

These guys have to GROW UP and stop with the Rossi obsession.

Did Liam just type "Rossi obsession"...funny stuff

How many riders were racing in the same conditions?
How many of them were wearing the same helmet?
Homw nay of them have more experience than Rossi riding in those conditions?

He was beaten by his injured team mate, that's all anyone needs to look at.
