I bet Vale had his doubts whether he still had it. I had my doubts. Two years is a long time,especially when he shouldn't really be riding at the top at the ADVANCED age of 34!! But seeing him doing what he did took me back to being lucky enough to be at Donington in 2000, I think it was,in the 500cc era, being 11th on first lap then passing 1 rider each lap to take the win. Thats when I became a fan of his. I posted a while back that there has been very little racing in last 2 years. There hasn't. Fact. Now he's just showed YET AGAIN what racing actually pass and re pass. Its what the fans want to see and if there is just a procession it turns people off. VALE is THE best racer I have seen in my 30yrs of watching. Probably the GOAT.

People comparing Rossi to the new bunch, Jorge, Casey, Dani...etc

There should be no comparison. Rossi is of old breed, he won 3 titles on two-sty bikes, 125,250 and finally 500cc. Those bikes were very very difficult to ride. Casey for instance, in his early years, he did not win anythin. and in his first year in premier class, wel he won nothing, cos those bikse were very difficult to ride.

I know we should not mention Casey in this thread, but one must ask this question.

People brag about Casey winning on Ducati. and yes he did, but he didn't win a lot more things that Rossi did, like winning title on satellite bike, lower categories...etc

Is Valentino Rossi is the GOAT? yes, because he won everything.

IS casey stoner as good as Rossi? No, because he did not win what Rossi did.

End of story.

People say Rossi caught up because MM decided to relax behind dani instead of pushing on limits,,

Well I say if Rossi didn't do those two mistakes, one in qualifying and the next one early in the race then MM would not have been in the scene as we would be now talking about 46vs99...

Aahh ssss the master is setting sights on European races to make real big statements on his return to all those critics and his younger rivals,,

Race win not easy against JL, Dani and MM but its not going to conclude without heart pounding battles,, if not a dominant win, Rossi will atleast take it down to the wire in intense last lap duel,, we know who rules in that part of the world...

Get ready fasten the seat belts, job on hands for top guys,,

If you saw how #46 could ride the Duc in wet circumstances , then you could know that he still has his level.
Unfortunately for him there where not much wet races....
Now back on the M1 he showed already in first race that he is totally back, and im sure ther are some fights with Jlo (and others)coming up!!
#46 is magic, the only coureur who can interest people who dont like motorsports!

you know all this blab about my dads bigger than your dad is mind numbingly futile.... the only truth is now rossi has a front end he can ride . the sports exciting to watch again because hes allways been the best racer in the buisiness , not the fastest,but by far the most entertaining rider ive ever seen in 40 years in the sport kudos to you valentino, 8 overtakes, you turned what could have been another precession into an edge of your seat spectical as youve done so many times in your carear and any fan of the sport who disregards this needs to take a long hard look at why they watch this sport.. stoner was the fastest of the modern era , lorrenzo complete riding perfection... but noone racers like valentino...and it showed on sunday..
