I dont think age had anything to do with it other then keeping him up on two wheels... people have been dropping like flies all weekend, ovbiously he lacked the grip to be able to fight back without chancing a crash.

4th is good enought considering the conditions and race pace... looking forward to La Mans and a better result...

rossi left and gave to yamaha a winning bike that honda didn't match.for four years yamaha has humiliated honda thanks to rossi in every comparment of the race.two yaers without him and lorenzo has developped a bike that is good to do fast lap all alone during practice.but this is not race .race is battle ,a figth between opponents. and today we see the result honda has payback to yamaha the rossi era domination remember 2005,and what does lorenzo do.nothing he is fast but he is not a fighter.well his way of fighting is not frontal he goes as fast as he can to avoid any overtake and i think this shows the limit and weakness in front of racer like rossi many times before and in the future with marquez.this kind of defeat for lorenzo will be a totally devastation for his psychology.cause his tactics that worked show a weak point where marquez drown himself and as rossi did before.
yamaha bring back furusawa to Rossi or it will be the beginning of the end

Rhino,
Don't bite at trash comments like these. Even the haters know the record and it it pains them to no end. I think Rossi will win two or three races this year, which will be great, considering the competition is the best it has every been with Dani, Jorge, and now Marquez.

Rossi's turn to win next, 3 of the aliens have won a race this year so LeMans will be Rossi's first victory of a sensational comeback season.
Once Burgess has got back into the swing of things at Yamaha and sprinkles his magic dust over the M1 we will see a new and revitalised Valentino Rossi!

Sad to admit from a Rossi fan, but if Stoner was on his bike, he would be winning races. I don't think Rossi is the old Rossi we know and love. I just don't think his head is in it anymore, and he does not want to come to terms with this.

Vale needs to get closer in the next race,I believe he still got what it takes to battle up front but the honda's are better than yamaha @ the moment

Its normal to expect high expectations for a 9time champion but after 3 races,its hasn't been so bad. A little bit more testing n understanding of the bike then he should kick ass in LeMans so fingers crossed

CALM DOWN PPL!!!!
It's a very long season, and we are just down 3 races. Rossi at the moment is in a very good position. co'z the way it is going, dani, marc and jr will be cutting points from each other, and rossi will meanwhile steadily collect the valuable points, and in a couple of races will win or atleast come second, thus bridging the gap.
let's wait till the summer, before we start praising him or bringing him down.

as for fraud 46... since it's your right to exercise your freedom of speech, please debate rather than argue with your naivety. Some of your arguments are down right hilarious...
on second thoughts, pls keep it up... we all need some laughter in this forum...

Take it to WSBK Vale, you can still get a good ride there, Jorge's bike is good, but its not as good as the factory Hondas, and it certainly isn't the bike he had in 2010.
