Yesterday at Phillip Island, Valentino Rossi took not only his 50th race win in GP competition - but his 11th victory of a quite outstanding season, putting him on target to match fellow Honda Hero Mick Doohan's record for wins in a year.

That chance will come at Valencia in two weeks time when he has the chance to not only take his twelfth victory, but also break the record single-season points score in the premier class of racing.

But that can wait, for now Vale is delighted with his magnificent half century.

"The 50th GP win is a very good result for me; a dream, and the race with Alex was very difficult," said the four-time World Champion. "Today the bike worked like I wanted, and I could ride it the way I liked."
