He did the same thing at Stoner Corner this year, completely sideways with both wheels on the inside Kerb at over 250kmph. The true King of slide in GP, be it on a Ducati or Honda!

Well, looking back over the decades, it seems that sliding is one of the very few dinosaurs who've just managed to survive in spite of all the anties added by electronic development (anti wheelie, wobble, dampers aso).
Therefore it is worthy to enjoy such slides while they are still around.And give due credit to all the riders who perform such things.
Not very optimistic about the future of mGP regarding such rodeos.I can only hope that riding on the rails might not be the only show remained in the years to come.

Dorna please look at these pictures and understand there isn't enough of them. These should be the norm at every meeting like they used to be. Please give the riders there bikes back get rid of the laptops.

Rossi is the king of slide - NOT STONER!

He's provided many great shots over the season, with sparks filling the air and clouds of carbon fibre dust as his fairing is ground away! :)


And yes amakusa - that was the Rossi/fan explaination when Stoner was dragging the Duc to the front week in week out. Funny how the Duc electronics seemed to take a massive step forward when he left and the bike went from winner to loser. Then again didn't Burgess used to say MotoGP was 80% about the rider - funny how he changed his mind.....

Rossi actually actually did do a half decent slide at the same corner this year. The funny part was when he saw the pic of it he was so excited he tweeted the pic to his fans Lol. Twas a bit sad.
