MotoGP » Rossi: We are quite worried


I never count Rossi out if he is .5sec down in practice before a race. But he has consistantly been 1.8-2.3 secs off the pace all through the tests so far this preseason. It's just logic that he isn't saving 2.5 sec in reserve for Qatar. Qatar is btw a Stoner track not a Ducati track. He went well there on the 990 honda in his rookie season setting pole and leading 20 laps of the race. Ducati needs to leave their tradition and build a normal bike. It doesn't work unless there is a freak kid to ride on it which they no longer have.

MotoGP » Rossi: We are quite worried


CRASH you have deleted a lot of my posts recently for being non supportive of Rossi. Is that a prerequisite for posting opinions on this website? When Rossi does well I give him his due, but when he does something dirty underhanded or illegal I speak my mind. This may upset his supporters but that does not mean that it is not fact. He made a bad choice going to Ducati. Hope his career lives to bounce back from the mistake. Maybe he can land at suzuki next year and develop their bike that they also seem unwilling to change despite the fact that it sucks.

MotoGP » Go backstage for a photo shoot with Rossi


Rossi will sell bikes in western europe, australia and maybe indonesia, yamaha started to market jorge in indonesia even before Rossi's departure from the team. The domestic superbike series in the states needs an overhaul if they really want to penetrate that market. The hardcore riders are the only ones who care about MotoGp or superbike. normal people never turn it on when they watch tv. And when they do cover it, they flood it with commercial breaks every 5-7 minutes and you usually miss all the big moments of the race. So even if by chance someone was watching they will be totally put off by the sorry assed coverage. I like the spanish coverage the way they keep a small window open during advertisements so you can see the race live. They need to keep throwing **** against the wall util they find something that sticks. If that is not Rossi, then try someone else, or something else.

MotoGP » Go backstage for a photo shoot with Rossi


@TedG When Rossi was in Times Square a few years ago(video on Moto GP.com )nobody knew who he was at all. His fans are around the globe, but perhaps other riders will attract more media attention in different markets. Nascar rules the roost and while Rossi has fans in the states he is no media magnet there. MotoGP and motorcycling sees the USA as its primary market for sales of sportbikes and a visit to New York City put that into perspective.I was a hardcore Rossi fan before but the new guys have grown on me. You have to admire their raw speed. Jorge seems the strongest one to me(mentally in a fight). Ben Spies has the mentality to fight it out. Rossi isn't washed up yet but that red bike could be the grim reaper coming to take his career.Bad choice by him.
