Lorenzo crashed at Valencia because he was approaching a much slower bike (20mph slower)who was going as fast as he could, but JL wasn't smart enough to wait for the straight to pass him, which he would have done easily...

The leader of a motogp race waiting for the straight to pass a back-marker... This joke should make sense ? That makes decades there are clear racing rules to avoid for a leader to just WAIT when the main goal is literally to ride as fast as possible for 45 minutes and more.

In truth, it's even tough to blame Ellison here because the Marshalls didn't do their job correctly, aka waving to Ellison the blue flag. A real shame

And smartness' Lorenzo's biggest asset by the way. Go figure failure.

i guess there is so little between the top 3 at any given track you could simply just pull there names out of a hat.
personally i think jlo who finished all races he completed no less than second place was this years complete rider , pedro had an outstanding second half once he got the new bike and lifted his game , stoner being hindered by a few physical issues early in the season ( probably due to lack of training playing dad )was always a threat and was winning a lot of the races by large gaps only to fade at the end .
the new honda introduced after the midway point was a sure factor in pedro's rise over jlo , but the yam never had a problem with the tyres from quatar to valencia , so there was plenty of advantages and disadvantages for them all.

@dave

you're an utter muppet and just proof you have no clue what you're talking about and just hate rossi

firstly rossi was on a satellite NSR. a satellite team with limited funds. where was capirossi, who was still in his prime, or barros, or ukawa on the factory nsr, or criville? they were all on the same bike, with MUCH better support. rossi finished 2nd in his first season on a god damn 500.

Secondly, the Yamaha was GARBAGE in 2003. It was terrible beyond comprehension. Barros developed the Yamaha? LOL. Barros never even rode a Yamaha, not in recent history (2000s) at least.

Rossi won 2 championships with stoner, lorenzo and pedrosa on equal and sometimes better machinery (excluding lorenzo obviously). I'm starting to doubt you don't even watch motogp. holy christ, you're so full of crap it's unreal. go watch laguna 2008 or catalunya 2009 to refresh your memory on who this guy is. Alternatively go watch philip island 2003 where he was given a time penalty of 10 seconds whil

@Talentfan I, (and I think most of the others who say they'd have put Lorenzo first), can see the opposing argument isn't unreasonable. We just differ on this point, whereas we agreed on the CRT vs factory prototype debate. They'd have to run races twice, swapping bikes to give a definitive answer to who is best, and even then, if they were run again the results might well vary, depending on track conditions and other factors. By contrast, the boring football fan mentality of the Stoner vs Rossi arguments has blighted every one of the 'Rider of the Year' threads, taking them off topic and so detracting from the featured riders. It's become very stale - the same old stuff repeated ad nauseam and is often both unreasoned and unreasonable.
