@dave... rossi feels that he can't be on par with younger riders anymore... and he search for lame excuses like ''they train alot, they diet'' , ''stoner started to hate me after laguna 08'' too keep his blind fans away from the bad results that he did with desmo... ok the desmo is a crap buit he had 2 years to improve that bike... he failed... and dave, what excuse you will bring when he will fail on m1 next year???

dacron What your saying is like saying Casey only won last years Championship because Dani was injured and had to ride round carrying an injury fact is Dani owned Casey this year.

Did Lorenzo only beat Rossi in 2010 because Rossi was injured too?

As a Rossi fan I think Casey is faster but that doesn't necessarily mean he's a better rider. If everyone had a factory Yam next year I think he would be at least top 3 because he is good at scoring points even when he isn't riding well. He's still scored 50% more points than his team mate this year.

Let's dispell this claim that DP26 only beat CS27 because CS27 was a brave little soldier riding with an injured ankle. Most, if not all, MotoGP riders have ridden injured at some time, and achieved results as good or better, often just days after the injury. Lorenzo did it with TWO injured ankles and he couldn't even walk without assistance. CC35 raced through the field days after breaking his foot, CE5 simply ignores broken bones. DP beat CS fair and square, despite being well aware that when he falls off he almost never walks away uninjured.

" @ Vilas - I take it you didn't get spell check for Christmas??? Posted by ABC for Kids - Unregistered"
Could you debate a topic in the language of another country? Is your Portugese as good as Vilas' English?
Does YOUR spellchecker work with foreign languages?
I don't always agree with Vilas, but he gets his points across in a way which we all understand and deserves credit for that, not sarcasm.

Hello Everyone,
Stoner Rossi blah blah every article and as a race fan it's boring.
I will add though people tend to forget what Rossi did in 2004 when comparing.
