Rossi takes victory at Assen.

Elias recovered to claim eighth for San Carlo Honda Gresini by just 0.049sec from Hayden's Ducati. The American had dropped to the tail of the group after a big slide under braking with 4 laps to go. Capirossi was a frustrated tenth.

UPDATE: Elias received a 20 second post-race penalty for the incident, which dropped him from eighth to twelfth.

Round eight of the MotoGP World Championship, the US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca, takes place next weekend.

First off i want to join all true Moto GP fans and all fellow Rossi fans and say a major congratulations to the one and only Valentino Rossi.This man is as close as you can get to been a god.And before anyone assume i am some young kid who has never seen great motorcycle racers . Let me say i have been watching bike racing since 1961 and have been in awe of great riders such as Derek Minter,Bill Ivy,Phil Read,Tom Herron Jarno Sarrinen,Mike Hailwood,Giacomo Agostini,Wayne Rainey,Kevin Schwants,Mick Doohan,Eddie Lawson,Barry Sheene Oh man there are so many more i could mention but Valentino Rossi is without doubt the best i have ever seen as a rider and a person he is the G.O.A.T no doubt.

You think Honda is finally figuring out that it's the RIDER, not the bike? :rolleyes: Their letting Rossi get away will go down as the biggest act of abject stupidity in the history of motor racing.
