Dubs,

May have been a troll but it is also a genuine race thread

If he feels it to be that race than we can all discuss it civilly ................. trolling would be where he or another starts a thread or participates in a thread that drops to the usual penis measuring competitions that we have seen to much of late.

I treat all threads as genuine until they turn to shit

My view as well.

I don’t think PI 2003 was Rossi’s greatest ride though, that being Donington 2005 imo as well as Daniboy’s, and he couldn’t touch Stoner at PI in general, even with Stoner on a 2010 Ducati against Jorge and Valentino on the championship winning 2010 Yamaha; he beat them by 9 and 17 seconds respectively.

As you have implied and others have said, equipment comes into it as well, the V5 Honda being a rather handy device as opposed to the 2003 Yamaha for instance, and wins by Garry McCoy as you raised and Simon Crafar on satellite bikes were particularly meritorious in that context.

I think Michelin ran a tiered system independent of the SNS tires, but the leading teams/riders were all likely on the top tier tires at the flyaway rounds, and as we are discussing could not be individually tailored at those races.

No doubt Rossi was really good back then anyway.

In terms of a race that had me absolutely on the edge of my seat and having a little shout at the the telly, then probably Welkom 2003, not because it was a masterclass and nothing to do with where Vale came, but purely because it was so soon after Daijiro passed away, it was properly emotional.

WSBK Imola 2002 was something else too.
