@VR
when you win again,please dont pull out any of those old mockery clown stuffs ever that I could vomit on my tv.Respect your rivals' misfortunes.cos the likes of Sete,Biaggi,Capirossi or Melandri would have enjoyed the same success as you have had,had they been put in the same box of treatment.

Ago while great has many easy championships due to his being the only works bike plus at that time it was common to race in two or more classes which isn't done anymore in GP. I believe the TT was also on the schedule during his time racing and through his complaining was eventually taken off the serious schedule due to the common fatal crashes. This all said it's tough as a Rossi fan to admit that it will be very difficult to win another championship but he still has a chance. Let's see how he competes this season back at Yamaha before counting him out.

After 2 hard years at ducati I think Rossi is cirtain to win this year. People like Rossi just get hungrier for wins during a drought.

Ago's comment was spot on. A WC is going to be a big mountain to climb. But it should be fun to watch him go for it in the next 2 years.

Anyone know who has the most wins on a 800 before Rossi crashed in Mugelo?

Roosi by 1 over Stoner.

If Ducati had not gone for the CF crap then I think it would most cirtainly be the other way around.

Ago had NO real opposition and Honda pulled out too. I am sorry but Ago is not in Rossi's class, he's lower.

You know whats really sad about it all, Rossi once the GOAT is now just nothing more then a payrider...So sad...

And no, no more WDC for Rossi, Just curious if he can at all improve from his Duc days, if youre to scared to push one bike ur gonna be scared with the other to, Just wanna see how that mental part worked out...

If he is getting more hungry for wins after not winning why didnt he really impove his results on the Duc itself?
He didnt win on it so he must wanna push harder n go faster to do so? No Improvement since day 1 and the CF frame excuse c'mon he got his T-spar Alu frame and still no impovement, you already seen the other way around and still you belive he would do better? Thats sum seriously twisted thinkin....

And if Ago is below the level of Rossi, at What level has Rossi been for the last 2years and this year? belows Abrhams Level? No dont go crazy on me with his WDC years cuase then you only wanna look at the good and not the bad days... again so twisted thinking

Rossi tried the best he could to rectify the mess at Ducati but never got truly comfortable with any of the solutions. Now that he's on familiar ground he should get comfortable with pushing the Yam and his results should improve as his confidence returns.

With the level of bikes and riders it's fairly safe to say that if Ago was racing in this era he would not likely have the success he had in the past. That said, we'll never truly know and that's why it's hard to compare riders from different generations.
