Guys, with your tremendous insight and wise words I'm sure that the first place Multi-Millionaire MotoGP Legend and all-time Most Popular racer Valentino Rossi goes looking for advice is here. Keep it up!

or maybe not...

Yeah man really this is starting to be annoying with all the half brained anti-Rossi trolls. Even in this incident in which Rossi was obviously not to blame, they will still find a bunch of reasons to blame him.

I would really like to see what kind of an excuse they will make up when Rossi wins again.

Rossi wins again? Only if five or six riders in front of him crash out and he doesn't. Highly unlikely, methinks. He is the first one to crash out trying to keep up with faster riders.

He's full of BS. AB's bike was leaning over into a turn. Rossi was straight up going straight. He overcooked it and took out AB. Yes it was a racing incident. I say that because they were racing and Rossi t-boned AB. If it were in a grocery store it would have been a shopping incident.

What's with all the disrespectful comments on this site? oh yeh, it's populated by 12 yr olds.

The throttle problem off the start could be heard on tv, that wasn't an excuse. The crash itself was a racing incident, two guys aiming for the same piece of tarmac. Respect to all the riders, sh*t happens

Well, I read the comments then watched the race, as I had recorded it. I am not certain if we watched the same race. Rossi's version is quite accurate, and I suspect Bautista did not see him, as he has stated. So, it was deemed a racing incident, as it should have been. They were battling at the front end of the field, which is good, in a race that saw several others make mistakes on their own, like Marquez. This is MotoGP and these things happen. I think some of the commentators should go back to playing motorcycle on their Nintendos because they clearly have no clue about real motorcycle competition.

WTF is anyone bothered about what happened between Rossi & Bautista?
Both of them are nothing other than mid-pack riders and totally irrelevant to 'The Show'.
The ones we should be concentrating on are Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Marquez, and Crutchlow. They are the aliens and are the future of MotoGP.
