MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Another podiom well done. Rossi has spent most of his career riding with his heart on his sleeve and established boundaries of sportsmanship, in his quest for victory. At 35 there is hardly a more respected and inspiring motorcycle rider in the sport. Where he once refused to entertain the thought of defeat (much like MM now), he now looks forward to just being able to be at the pointy end and compete. Rossi has chosen to carry on for a few more years and risk defeat, on the small chance he may be able to snatch some more victories. He is to be commended for the way in which he fights on. Takes ball$ to front up week after week, knowing you are not as good as you once were. To be in the wilderness (with Ducati) for those years, and be involved in an accident that claimed your childhood friend, would have seen a lot of riders give up the ghost. But for Rossi and his love of racing, he overcame those obsticals, and for me and I'm sure millions of others, we are gratefull. Go Rossi.

MotoGP » MotoGP riders to make Michelin debut at Sepang

@ TalentFan. "Be best if the 2016 tyres could only be tested without ANY electronic data gathering, so the big bucks teams dont get the jump again from day 1 with data analysis and developing electronics solutions that the other teams cannot afford". Annoying that you and I, and blind Freddy can see that, But Dorna and the teams can't. That's the world we live in now. Money talks. Do hold hope that your last sentence is not true though.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: No answer to Marquez and Lorenzo

Motojunky: Since when has the term "wingman" been written into contracts. The term has only been bought into vogue by the Pedrosa supporters as far as I can see. Anyway Rossi has narrowed the gap to 2nd in the title chase.
I used the term "wingman" because it was used earlier in the thread by another poster. Hence the inverted commas ! I agree with your point: they are all competitors in their own right and each is looking to beat the other. Yep, VR has surely closed the gap at this point for 2nd.....could be a close run thing by the season's end.
Yeah I know it's been used for a while now. Not having a shot at you for using the term, just having a shot for reasons you just stated. Cheers.
