Exposed - Unregistered May 10, 2013 3:25 AM @The Judge. Do some cursory research on the internet. It's common knowledge Rossi had special tyres flown in for him before race day. Good on him. He got away with it for a while. Since his stint at Ducati, with no walls, no special tyres etc, he's been totally exposed and owned of course but his facade worked for a while at least. Not only Rossi, everybody had "custom" tires and it lead to Elias winning races on satellite machine, or KR jr. getting on the podium on private machine with honda engine, or whatever there are a lot of examples. Even if the michelin didn't supply them tires during weekend it was a good thing, closer racing, maximizing riders potential, i just don't understand how more options with tires can be a bad thing.
