MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


To get this conversation back to the topic I think that it's amazing that Rossi has slowly adapted to changing his riding style. Changing what you know as you get older isn't easy. But I give him lots of credit for methodically rebuilding his confidence and seeing areas that he needs to improve. But his desire and talent have never waivered even in the dark days with Ducati. A sign of a true champion.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


Figures some jokers would try to negate Rossi's brilliant race as luck due to Marquez fall but as others have noted that Rossi was in front and pulling away which caused Marquez to push too hard creating the fall while he was behind Rossi. Rossi would have beat Marquez even if he stayed upright and I think toward the end he would have been even behind Lorenzo.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


TrueFan I really don't see too many fans making wild predictions or making fun of other riders from this one win. Most are just showing their happiness that their favorite rider has won a good race at his home track. Most also seem realistic and hopeful. I know that some fans consider him the Greatest and while definitely in the conversation he hasn't won the most championships or most GPs either. I know there has been a long debate on who's the greatest and by the numbers it's still Ago but as people have pointed out he didn't have the level of competition in direct other factory riders at some points. Nevertheless, no matter where someone is in the GOAT argument Rossi won a race many haters and others said he wouldn't ever win again due to the competition but he did so fans rejoice. Good on Rossi hope we see more of this type of result soon.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


Good on Eugene for getting the opportunity to land on a MotoGP bike. It makes sense for any rider to have a dream to make it to the top level. Obviously you'd want to be on the best bikes available but if your talent level doesn't warrant top bikes then any in the category that will give you a chance to show your talent will do. While I think that EL has talent I don't think it's at the Motogp level but that said I hope he does well no matter what team he's on.

MotoGP » MotoGP Misano - Race Results


Yearby good analysis other than Jlo picking the wrong tire. If he placed 6 or lower than I'd agree that he picked the wrong tire for him. But there is no guarantee he would have done better with the medium tire Rossi was running. He could have placed even lower if he went with it. As we don't get the after race interviews (at least the station I see it on) there's no info from Jlo indicating such. Why can't everybody just admit it was Rossi's race and today he was better than all other riders. I hope this win will carry to other tracks for Rossi to be even more competitive. More wins would be great.

Liam if Rossi raced like this (i.e. style and aggression) 10 years ago and forward (assuming the bike and tires were capable of it) he would have been even more intimidating. In this scenario he would have probably won even more championships than he did. Neverthess great job by Rossi at his home race. Nice present to Yamaha on their 50th year anniversary weekend in GPs as well.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


Lux I don't think that Rossi meant that literally. Probably more a reaction to how he's been lately in that he was as competitive and now he feels more confident. I'm sure if he really sat down and thought when he was at his top it probably would have been years ago when in the middle of winning all his top level championships. But it's been a long tough road back so I'm sure this win must help. Go Rossi!!!
