MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


SkyWilk:
R6Ryder: Heads up rossi has the edge. I've looked it up. Rossi won a title at age 30! Let's see how Jorge is doing in 3 years. Looks like he is no longer the fastest at age 26/27? Rossi was already 29 when Jorge showed up. Past the prime in terms of motogp racing
Tell that to Biaggi, Gibernau, Doohan, or a handfull of others who were well over past 30 also then! And MY point still stands! 2 championships vs 1, 31 wins to 17 since lorenzo got to motoGP, and last year to add to the tally. How can Rossi be the "best ever" if he can't beat his own teamate? He got slow with age? Then retire!Enough of excuses.
To be fair, Rossi has 2 titles since Lorenzo came up, but to me those 08-09 titles were a bit tainted. Ducati spends years developing a bike tire combo while Rossi is wallowing in glory on his Saturday Night Specials. Once they outlaw the sss, Bridgestone is the tire to have and Rossi threatens to quit if he cant have them

The threat works, Dorna forces Bridgestone to supply Rossi and the rest as they say is history. Rossi with the Stones takes the title in 08 while Lorenzo and Pedrosa trudge on with the inferior Michelins, then again in 09 with the advantage. of being on the stones for a year after it went spec.. All the while Ducati, who put in the work to develop the tire slipped further and further behind. But yes, Lorenzo ans Stoner both bettered Rossi since they entered the series by a considerable margin

SkyWilk:
Harryx: And wait a minute, suddenly Rossi fans are saying that it's no more about the statistics? Predictable!
Aint it the truth. For 10 years, all you heard was how many wins and championships Rossi had. Now that the current stats are looking downright pedestrian, 3 wins in 4 1/2 years, 1 in the last 3 1/2 years, his greatness is now judged by t shirt sales.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...


What is the argument, Rossi said it himself. Marquez has much tougher competition than Rossi did when he was at Honda QUOTE Maybe it is the rivals, because sincerely we are better rivals to Marquez than I had when at Honda How much clearer does he have to say it. Biaggi, Gravelplow, Barross etc etc were not in the same league as Rossi, Lorenzo, and Pedrosa, period. The lowest ranked rider of those 3, Pedrosa, has more wins than Biaggi and Gravelplow combined, and almost as many as all 3 of them combined. When you throw Stoner into the mix, its easy to see why Rossi's win % fell over 50% once he started racing against the classes of 06- -08. For the first half of his career, he never raced against a 15 race winner, the second half, he has raced against two 30+ race winners, and one who will be a 30 race winner before his career is over. Marquez is competing against an 80 race winner, a 31 race winner, and a 26 race winner. If you argue who had the toughest competition, you a

I would say Honda learned their lesson after losing Rossi. There next great rider after him was Stoner, and when it came time to try and keep him, they didnt wave bye bye, they offered the moon and a kiss to try and keep him. They know what they have in Marquez, and will treat him accordingly. I doubt he ever leaves HRC, just like i doubt Lorenzo ever leaves Yamaha.

MotoGP » Pedrosa victorious, Marquez only fourth in Brno


My predictions are are looking good for now. Marquez will not win every race, check. Dani will pull away from Rossi for 2nd in the championship, check. Lorenzo will outscore Rossi in the second half of the season but not catch him for third, check. Thats actually 3 races in a row that Lorenzo has beaten Rossi. Great ride from Dani. Jorge getting stronger and starting to look like himself again, Rossi defying father time. Second half scoring Lorenzo 40 Rossi 32
