MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: We can fight


On the question of whos the better rider, there is no clear winner Rossi is tactically brilliant both on and off the bike. Lorenzo is so consistently fast he almost never gets his feathers ruffled, a very tough opponent. Stoner well if the bike is right and he is well rested then he is the fastest guy on two wheels, end of story.

@ realist it was interesting, also didnt know JL was considering retiring, must have missed that, I initially thought he would be going very young but this is his 6th year in motogp and at the pace the have been travelling at in the last couple of years I guess their luck cant hold for ever, nice to retire injury free and at the top of your game!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: We can fight


There are claims and possibly with some justification that in the past Rossi has been on much superior equipment or had fairly weak rivals. This year is an opportunity to put that to rest, the recent test showed he was as fast as ever, he has 2 experienced rivals, 1 on an identical bike with equal factory support, the other on a similar factory ride. No excuses - let the best man win!!

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: We can fight


My mum decided to get herself a motorcycle in her mid fifties, she was quite eccentric and a bit of a revhead, as a child I can recall her driving round in first a 37 ford coupe then later a 39 ford sedan, my father at the time had a much later model 4 cylinder vauxall, this was when an old ford was worth little, and to own a new car was rare in early sixties South Island NZ. Later when I used a motorcycle as my only transport she decided to get one as well, never fell off despite gravel roads and ice, eventually the cold affected her joints and she had to sell it. She also rode it very quickly, I meant it when I said she could have ridden the Ducati...... The only problem I have with VR is some of his fans have short memory's.

@the fan .I never said VR got his 9 championships on a silver platter, I was refuting Sams claim that he won everything he entered in the 125's 250's and 500gp's In fact he won 50% 1 125 championship 1 250 championship and 1 500gp championship. A great effort but hardly "winning all" the help he received is well documented. EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inappropriate comment removed.

@sam have you been watching motogp long, you mention that is why he won all in 125 2 stroke and 250 2stroke and 500 2 stroke His first year in 125 he came 9th he had the advantage of support from his father an ex motorcycle racer who was well connected and in his second year he won the championship and moved to Aprilia 250 the following year, Aprilia was the machine to be on then and again he won the championship not in his first year but his second. Then he moved to 500gp and inherited Doohans bike that had won the previous 5 years straight, Doohan helped him for the first year and he also got Doohans crew chief, hard to imagine a better start really, again he won the championship in his second year - a good effort but not quite winning all in these classes, in fact only half your claim - guess that is how legends start. (By exaggeration and ignorance - no offence) :)
