Congrat to Rossi, he rode great again! Definitely deserves this year's title. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]
About Stoner you're right...he tries too much for nothing. Why the hell has he push soo much when he's got 3 secs?! I would say now Ducati should not hire Gibernau, because they have one. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif[/img]
This was the last race when he could turn the page, on Vale's hometrack but he failed again...from here I can not imagine to stand up and win (not a race, the WC in the future) against Rossi.
Great ride by JL, Elias and Vermi! Toseland was great as well. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/toot.gif[/img]
The two Kwaks? Ehhh... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]

Dani is the re-incarnation of Max Biaggi....Always the fault of his equipment and never the rider.....

A the post race interview Elias said he "was free" and that anyone interested should let him know. He actually looked like he was on the verge of crying. Talk about your bittersweet moments. Sounds like Ducati has already cut him loose. How fucking ironic is that? The one other guy who finally learns to ride the 08 bike competitively isn't assured of a ride.

Fackin hell, that was a race, and the 250s were awesome!

It's not so easy when you cant just clear off by miles is it? I think the arguement that Casey is overiding due to pressure is gaining credibility race by race.

Pedrosa in traffic is a joke, as soon as Rossi got near him, his body language changed, and he was on borrowed time. Scud is more impressive by the week, and Hopper is a waste of money and a bike.

Never mind Barry Machine an his mates, wheres the "Rossi is past it" brigade who wrote him off last year?

Clearly his plan was to run away with the race and humiliate Rossi - but the tactic back-fired. That's racing dude. Rossi can still have some mishaps and/or mechanical DNFs, but even as a Stoner fan, my gut says this ain't gonna happen.

Stoner will have big problems now, not only championship wise but phsycological.

What happend today,reminded me of Biaggi 2001. Stoner almost explaind it why he crashed in

last gp by just crashing again, when Rossi was closing the gap.

I hoped for a better result for him and Pedrosa, to bring the top 3 closer.

I ,m sure the threads with the "did Stoner choked?" are under their ways. and i think this time

unfortunatly he did. But i think also that every rider or driver makes mistakes under pressure,

from time to time, or a few in a courier.

Anyway since i,m a Rossi fan i,m very happy for him. Becuse this was his first track ever to ride

on, and he had never won it in motogp and of cource the family/friends/neighbourhood/record

for more reason to be happy with.

Kawasaki should hire Scud to partner Melandri next season.

Eurosport said Ago has not been seen by them today - hence no celebration with him.

They should keep Westy on a 3rd bike and hire someone that CAN develope a bike...Marco cant, Westy cant and certainly Hopper cant....
