Rossi's statements make him sound like a hybrid rider now....

...sliding the rear like he's on a Duc, but with the front end confidence capabilities of the M1. We have seen him ride his best on worn tires while most of the others ride best on fresh tires. Very interesting.

I have to admit i cant understand why people are so excited with Val finishing 4th and miles behind his team mate and the race winner.
He is on a full factory M1.He should be at the pointy end with Jorge,not battling for 4th place with satellite riders 20 seconds down the road.
We are 10 races in to the season guys.
Lets hope he has a better weekend at Brno.

Hoppy off you go and get yourself another drink! The man done good on a bad weekend , he will probably do better over the next couple of races and should end up fourth in the championship I think not too shabby. And will people stop going on about Crutchlow's bike its every bit as fast as the factory bike and then some! Talking of which if the Ducati does not improve vastly over the winter then he is in for a wake up call.

Jambop.
I am sorry if i am not pissing myself with excitement after Vals 4th place.But the fact is he is not performing this season the way we thought he was going to.
10 races into the season and he has only won a single race.I was expecting much more from him when he got back on the Yamaha.
And if you are prepared to admit it mate,i bet you did as well!
As i said,lets hope he does better next weekend.

Dont worrie, he will be doing better at Brno.. aim confidente Yamaha will use the new gear box and that the pace of both Yamahas will improve.. They are all more close then you think, we only need one mistake from marquez and 0 points in one race for the Champ change again.. Rossi has this problems at indy but 4sure will be diferente at Brno, lets wach because we still have many points on the market.. Anyway about this race Rossi could had been better if he had find a better setup to use the Yamaha on the first stage of the race.. Was not a probleme about is speed because when he feel good he really puch like we have been waching at some tracks and thats why Rossi is in 4 and still in touch with the fight..

Great riders know when to give it away. Val was a great rider in every sense of the word, not now though. 19 seconds down and fighting with a satellite rider. His team mate on the same bike was a long way in front. He would earn some respect back if he announced his retirement.......

When someone owes you money they say The Check is in the Mail, which until Rossi retuned Yamaha was the number one excuse.

Now Rossi is on a M1 the new number 1 excuse s It's the setup

As Hoppy stated 10 races in and we may as call him Ben Spies lol
