Yep, that is one hell of a thing to be be proud of. Out-breaking yourself. Illegally crossing the white line with both wheels and then smacking onto the side of the other rider. Rossi never boasts about that move and is almost apologetic whenever asked about it. Leguna 08 was significant in that he put pressure on Stoner by pushing his bike to the limit and shadowing him. But in the process he rode a bit ragged and that accidental pass was the result. It was good tactics by him and Mr Burgess but the corkscrew pass was something that would probably attract a penalty if tried now and was not the way we want to see MotoGP riders dice.
