most of you still are not getting it. Rossi has not changed in terms performance, maybe that has declined only a little due to age. The change is that he is no longer up against the likes of biaggi, gibernau, and he has to contend with pedrosa, marquez and lorenzo. THEY are the reason rossi appears to have lost his mojo, not a change in any way by rossi. I'm not buying this whole "lorenzo changed the entire bike around" theory either. Its essentially the same DNA as the one rossi hopped off of but with 200 more cc. His transition shouldn't be taking as long as it has been. its just the competition has greatly increased at the top since his glory days. end of story.

@claes

You said Rossi's pace has not dropped but the level of competition has certainly raised... I ACCEPT

You also asked shouldn't the GOAT be able to handle this level of competition... SERIOUSLY I DISAGREE

where are your senses, understand that he is aging and everyman has his days. Just for an example, remember Alexander the great has conquered larger territory in Earth than anyone one else in the history, but can his supreme battling skills stand a chance against modern nuclear weapons?

world will keep improving around you but you have your own limit in learning, adapting and keep improving with the world.
Great Respect for whatever he has done, great cheers for coming sunday...

No one celebrates like him, when Rossi rides it look like a poet's rythm at it's best... NO one can make a bike look beautiful winning races than what Rossi does with atleast a podium.. He rides like he is born to race...

Uhm yeah. That has to be the worst description I have ever seen to compare a racer in his twighligt.

Rossi is not riding on horse back against a battallion of tanks. He's racing his teammate,on equal equipment, whom he can't beat yet.

well im finding the racing alot more entertaining this year but finding it increasingly difficult watch someone with the supreme talent Rossi had turning in to a has been. He will always be for me anyway the greatest but its time to step asside before he gets hurt trying to keep up with the next generation of talent. Have a go at WSB the viewing figures will go through the roof. Long live the king!

Bring Edwards, Hayden, and Spies along too... GP is for the 90 lb Spaniard and that's it. 'Supers is where it's at!!!

Very hard & almost impossible for Val to get a podium.

The main race as always will be Dani, Jorge and Marquez.
Val unfortunately has to live with the arrival of Marquez in Moto GP.

Val in the most simple explanation is slow, unless any of the top three riders fail to finish - no podium for Val.

@CRT

ya he is not riding on a horse back, but on an equal machinery like his teammate, but you forgot something that the bike keeps improving a little bit every season and rider must improve along with it to get the best out of it,, I say Rossi's age has made him slow in terms of learning new and adapting to new ones... Are you so damn sure that JL will keep improving with the bike as long as he or you wish(provided he doesn't quit early like someone and keep.going with a long carrier).

This has to be the most important mugello race for Rossi. He must finish in front of Lorenzo there. That is where his problems started 3 years ago. His reputation is now clearly on the line. A win would b sweet but the hondas are really a notch above. Good luck on this one, fading away is fine but when you are rossi you also must do it with style.
