yeah, sure. Roberts with Spencer..., like Lorenzo Pedrosa, only 2 riders competing for the win all year long unless the two of them crash... that ain't nothing real sports is about. rivalry is not a function of the most boring or the better wikipedia results

Someone (apparently a member of Rossi's team) in the stairwell got a hold of Max and Rossi took the oppertunity to land a beauty on Max...

Being a joker I don't realy see where all this king of the hill persona stuff leads to. I tend to view it as a weakness rather than a sign of strength.

The strong types are willing to admit their misstakes and move on.

I do wonder why Honda threw Biaggi out of motoGP?

they cast him of MotoGp because after the last race of the season Max call conference without the permission of Honda and talk about the problems arising between them.
He talks about the promised parts he tested in winter break and that they never had been presented during the season to him. Instead they have been hold for 2006 season.
And for the new chassis that was given to Hayden instead of Max although their contract says exactly the opposite and the new chassis should be given to Max.

honda is a very sneaky company. That's why they lost Rossi and now Stoner.

I hope that Max stays in Racing in one form or another.

I have always love his Moody, Acerbic, personality!
Re MacInroe, Raikinon, Doohan, Great Sportsmen that did it their way!

Max's riding style has always been Super Smoothe, Never really looked as if he was going That Fast!
Lorenzo is the Same, all-ways Very Smoothe. Never Puts his Foot Out when Braking (a silly fashion started by
Valentino). Keeps both feet on the pegs just like Hailwood (The Master)

I hope Max has a Wonderful Retirement with his Family.

Thank you for the Entertainment Max.

According to the "rossi the fraud" squad, rossi only won because he had superior machinery AND no real competition. It's pretty obvious max is a great rider and was a worthy rival.

ciao max. All the hairy breast!

The battles between Valentino and Max were what you can call racing!!! Even the punch up they had, which was hilarious, are all stuff that made watching them a real treat! Max will be a big miss in W.S.B., but that's the way it goes and he has given us all some fantastic racing!! Good luck in what comes next Max!
