MotoGP » Rossi upbeat about shoulder, chatter heads 'to do' list


Rossi it seems to me is fairly happy with what Ducati have changed on the bike, from what I'm lead to beleive the bike is alot differant to last year. He is now saying that he now needs to dial himself into the bike, front end chatter is something he will fix & is something that most riders suffer with from time to time. If you listen to him I would have to beleive that he is capable of reducing his lap times by between 1-1.5 seconds once his shoulder is upto full strength. I expect to see a decent improvement at the end of the month if his shoulder has healed more & he can get some muscle built up. Give him time & he will deliver.

MotoGP » Rossi: 150 things to try tomorrow!


Ignore all the negative comments, most of them are from sour posters. We all know the times don't reflect what Rossi is capable of, but not in his current physical condition. As many of you have posted on here that are Rossi haters he's making excuses, well I can't wait to re post on here in the summer & lay into the lot of you, if I said what I really want to I would get banned from this site, also it would be lowering myself to the low level of the brainless idiots on here. My quick rant is over & this is not targeted at the majority who post on here sensibly. Rossi will get quicker & quicker.

MotoGP » ‘Interesting solutions’ found as Ducati test ends


Why don't we all just wait & see what happens when rossi & hayden test's the bike, I'm sure we will get thier views on the bike either way. As for a team not listening to a riders feedback is totaly beyond me, they have to to improve. I beleive that the direction that they are going in will be driven by Rossi, if you lot who profess to know as much as you do about this sport truly know your stuff then you would know full well that when Vale joined Yamaha it was his feedback & Burgess said that if Ducati listen to Vale then they will too have a bike that works how he want's it to. For those of you that doubt Rossi's abilities along with the rest of his team, if they turn this bike into the one to have then surely 3 of them can leave no doubt. But let's just wait & see waht happens.

MotoGP » 'Red' Rossi to break silence at Wrooom


I think considering everything here we are in 2011, completely differant to 2004, there were more testing then & Rossi was in full health. I would think to say Rossi is a favourite for the title of 2011 is a little optimistic, what I would not rule out is 3 or 4 wins & plenty of podiums from Rossi. There are many that just can not bring it on themselves to accept that Rossi was injured last year & it did prove to be a big problem, I would simply say this, just wait & see if he's fully recovered. Any of you that has read Valentinos Autobiography, what if I never tried it. You would have a good understanding why he is so good, this guy is a serious racer & hates being beaten. He will come back strong & although I don't expect a title this year I certainly expect big things come 2012 when Rossi's dna is all over the Ducati, I can't wait! Expect a slower start then midway through the season the bike will come good once he & Burgess has doctored it, he he he As for the M1 & Lorenzo, w

Let's ot forget, some of these guys are out & out racers, when it comes down to sheer out & out racing & scrapping on the track if Rossi has his bike set-up correct then there is not many who will get the better of him. I know he's not unbeatable far from it but when it comes down to a bit of a scrap on the track some of the riders just aint got it & Rossi has, if this means abit of fairing bashing and a few inches off track that's fine by me. Anyone who did'nt like it at Laguna it's pure jealousy, how can anyone not like that, I was just at the edge of my seat during that race, it will certainly be one of the races I remember for ever like many racing fans will. I don't know about you lot but I would entertain that every week.

A. M. Nesia, Thanks for that. Sure I know that, not realy sure what it's got to do with what I posted, anyway you are entitled to your opinion & comments which I respect. Yes I have posted on here for around 5 years or so now, I don't actualy post many replies on here because I don't have time to sift through all the post's to find any that I want to reply to, what I do see mostly is people knocking each other, I can't be bothered to get involved in all that rubbish. I have my views & post them, I always try and post my views without getting personal with anyone as it's simply a waste of mt time. I'm amazed at how many people on here seem to post & attack other, what they get out of it is beyong me but hey it's upto them.

Truth is, can you please enlighten me as to why you are accusing Rossi and Dorna of being cheats. alot of you jealous people on here seem to have no other explanation as to how Rossi has racked up Nine World titles. I'm going to be delighted if Rossi can fight for the title this coming season, I will also as in other seasons gone by where all the Rossi haters seem to hope & pray that Rossi is past it , keep praying cus it won't happen just yet. For certain I don't think Rossi will be able to tame the Ducati & adapt it to his liking, now guys just remember these words adapt, the Ducati is a very good bike but will need to be adapted to suit Rossi. I know so long as Rossi has his shoulder injury fixed then we can expect more good things to come from Mr Rossi. Can't wait to see it happen, make some of you even more jealous!

iggy, where were u then? Bayliss had to quit Motogp because he was not good enough in this class. To those of you that keep saying Rossi had the best bike, well doh, let me think a minute, how the *uck did those bike's get like that, they was developed by Rossi & his crew they was simply just given to him like it, just look at the last 7 years at Yamaha, let's see how good the Yamaha is in 3 years time without his development shall we! Same with Tyres Rossi was never just handed the best tyres he like all his rivals worked with the tyre manufacturers to develop tyres to suit him. Let's wait & see how good the Ducati is in a few years time. Rossi is worthy of this poll result no question.

MotoGP » 2011 MotoGP winter test schedule


I doubt that Valentino will even make the top ten in the first test, I could be wrong & hope I am but I'm simply being realistic about the task in hand that is in front of Valentino. I think the second test in Malyasia will be the test to see if there is a significant improvement in the bike. Most of Valentino's rivals have either stayed put or the likes of Spies have virtualy the same bike. You have Casey who has switched to Honda and was awesome on the much improved Honda. we don't know if Rossi's shoulder is completel repaired either, we will all just have to wait & see, but any proper motogp fan will be like a little kid waiting for a bag of sweets, that seems to take for ever.
