IMO it's about honours even.
Sure enough Valentino put some questionable moves on Casey at LS in 08 and Casey is entitled to his opinion, but he did come second even after falling off. But race direction said all was good and that's an end to it!
LS 11 was a different matter, Casey was on a bike that suited him perfectly and Valentino was on the Duc, Casey beat him by a full half minute and again in 12 where Valentino only managed 3 laps. So as I said, honours even, maybe slightly in Casey's favour.

I haven't really weighed in on this, but fwiw, I believe ross YES, deliberately pushed him wide. it's VR46, he isn't some babe in the woods.

if there's a moment, when he isn't in ABSOLUTE COMMAND of where he places his bike on the track...? it'll be the first I've heard of it.

ps: while I didn't care for the move, I stop just short of slating him 'cause he did cut left (taking the long way) and put his bike on the pavement. if he really wanted to be a jerk, he would've stayed on his trajectory and short cutted across the dirt right along with marquez. goes back to my contention he was fully in control. but he knew he had nothing for his pace so there was no point.

It is so refreshing to see real competitors race hard and have a moment without all the whining and sniveling that normally goes on by the past and present usual suspects.
The only whining and sniveling now is by the haters here. While the competitors hug, shake hands and congratulate each other for a race well rode. Haters: Take a lesson from these guys.

@ TedG.

You are one lucky S.O.A.B. Being able to witness those 2 moments. Not many can lay claim to that.
By the way have you heard the latest news from down under.
Apparently Stoner saw the move on T.V. and also how to react after the race.

If Stoner came back at PI as a wild card and beat Rossi after being nearly a year off the bike that would destroy the Rossi myth and there is no way Rossi would allow that to happen, he most likely would not race.

Lets hope they won't allow it, myths are good, false but good

HI
#Masrkgardiner Invented Really the person that run off the track to make a corner misjudged it and made a mistake, so I would not brag about the inventor
Like Ari Vatanen ones said about the Scandinavian flick, you only need it if your not going fast enough
#Codger OK you might be right
#Dr Who Should not the best rider in the world be dialed in by now:)
Cheers Claes
