lorenzo cracking under pressure.. weekend after weekend having to go head to head with rossi has finally taken it toll and it all started on the last corner pass by rossi at Barcelona. it not about going fastest on 1 lap it about being the fastest over the hole championship and thats why so many have failed. at least people can winge about lorenzo for a bit cos was sick of the stonergate

Hope they are both OK, seems Lorenzo has some legit injuries that could prevent him for riding or at minimum affect his performance tomorrow. Valentino just seems to be an absolute genius when it comes on to knowing the limits of his equipment!!!! I guess thats why he is where he is.
