i think rossi was looking a lil bit wary, he didnt have the confidence. the moment he got the chance to pass Dani, he took it and went away. I remember those days when he love to stalk another rider just because he had the confidence to overtake the rider in front of him. he's not at his best anymore.

Re: "Poor Jorge. THE most heroic race ever, only to be overshadowed by Valentino again."

Even I have to cop to that. I was honestly thinking crutch was going to do the business and his win would play #2 fiddle to Lorenzo's storyline?

Not a Rossi fan but that was a good ride from him.
Jorge tough as nails showing what type of champion he is.
Crutchlow proving that it wasnt a fluke and if Jorge was fit he'd still podium.
Honda there/there-abouts not an impressive weekend for them but a good weekend nonetheless.
More races as close as this one and GP will have taken a definate step forward entertainmentwise.

Now bring on World Superbikes, gotta love double weekends for racing.

M8 the days of great battles still happen but we also have to understand that with this bikes with better electronics etc they can do this start te very fast and keep performing all laps like this, so its very importante to try to escape to be focus, also with riders like Cal and Marquez beahind riders that are exciting because they can be dangerous, i think Rossi end up doing well just trying to do is race, also it was one Win that he really whanted so avoiding any risk was one priority.. We will see on the next tracks how he will be about confidence with bike, anyway this win is a big BOOST all what we whanted..

It's no poor Jorge, almost everybody is acknowledging his ride and praising him.
And deservingly so.

But the best racer ever winning after almost 3 years and 2 whole seasons in the gutters where everyone was calling for him to retire, many of his fans included... Well, that simply can't not be the headline news... :)

Rossi undoubtedly is a talented racer. Despite of his age he can still win. He makes passing maneuvers look easy. On the other hand, overtaking is the weakness of Cal. Yes, he's fast but it takes a while for him to pass a slower rider.
