MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow - Q&A: Part 1

"In Yamaha I was not going to be guaranteed a factory bike. I was not really getting promoted in that company at all. The way I explain it to people is, imagine doing their day job, doing better and better at it every year, but never being able to move up. And then someone new moves straight in with a better contract than you." Well, since the reference to Rossi is more than clear, I cannot but say that Rossi isn't exactly new to Yamaha, nor his fans or sponsors - are they Cal?

MotoGP » Casey Stoner an official MotoGP legend

“There are some people that will remember me well and others that will remember me not so well. I was a competitor to a lot of their idols, someone that took a lot of race wins away. Some people remember me as a loud mouth Aussie, others will remember me as being honest." Rossi is in his mind even now. That's almost confessing to being booed away from MotoGP. I'm not sad about his departure. Marquez is the perfect replacement -equally fast but so in contrast with him in all other respects- always smiling, never shy to scrape paint (even declared he considers it to be fun), he thrives on RACING, not just fast riding.

MotoGP » Rossi fancies chances at Phillip Island

"abundant memories of glory days at the stunning Phillip Island circuit " indeed. Rossi's book "What if i had never tried it?" an autobiographic account of his racing (and other) exploits until 2004 (or 2005?) starts with a flashback of his last lap assault against Gibernau on that circuit which eventually led to victory. What could point the above out in a better way?

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang suits the Yamaha

... cont. - In the final few laps we were all biting our nails with exhilaration about the outcome of the race -it was a heated duel between Red and Blue-, totally oblivious of the big category national race that was taking place right outside and despite of the noise- it just added to the atmosphere. Those were the times. One of the best motorsports days I've ever had.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang suits the Yamaha

I still remember that thriller of a race between Rossi and Capirossi, in Sepang. Don't remember the year- '04 or '05?... I remember that sunny day, being at a racetrack to watch a national motorcycle championship race and when the MotoGP race started lots of spectators opted to get in the buffet to watch it on the huge plasma TV that was installed there. People kept coming inside until it was completely full, most of us having nowhere to sit just standing on our feet. It turned out to be something like a religious ceremony. The consensus that we were all sharing the same passion got put across swiftly and silently and that meant an ease for everyone to call out his comment at whatever moment he'd like. You'd hear enthusiastic or caustic humorous comments from all over the place during the race.
