Way off.


Rossi got help getting the bike off his leg, then he did the rest himself. Stoner didn't have a chance anyway with that magic clutch/gearbox.

Way off? I still see Stoner picking up his own bike and trying to get on it with 3-4 stewards attending to Rossi. What I don't see is Stoner waving his arms to get help like I did in the footage aired on speed

I remember seeing Rossi ride off and the stewards walking away... while Stoner was waving his arms.
I'm a huge Rossi fan, but i could see the favoritism.

Yes. Way. Off.

Stoner's bike was up before the Marshalls even got there, and I see 2 immediately at the rear of Stoners bike starting to push him before Rossi is even on his bike.

Things to keep in mind. You see 2 riders go down, 1 running to his bike, and the other with TWO BIKES on top of his leg... who do you help first.

Plus, IMO Rossi has earned the favoritism that he is getting, as anyone with 9 world championships has.

So there is no favoritism, but the favoritism Rossi is getting was well earned?

I'm not entirely sure on this. Let me go to the judges...

uh huh


yeah

Okay. Yep. You suck at this argument thing.

Hate to say it but yea its obvious the favoritism. Would have been nice to see Lorenzo Rossi and stoner battle it out in the rain. They are all good rain riders.

here let me help him since he sucks at this, lol

watch the video..

take note at :07 when the wreck happens

now pay special attention to :14 stoner has his bike up and the the marshells still havent made it to them yet..

granted there are more helping rossi in the begining but the duc was on his leg and the honda was on the duc so regardless you would think common sense would tell you to help the one that is stuck under the bike. doesnt matter who he is..

Right. So if Stoner has his bike up, and the Stewards aren't there helping rossi yet, his second comment saying "there were TWO bikes on him" is invalidated. That's all I was saying.

It's not that complicated buddy.

2 bikes on Rossi's leg. Stoner up and running towards his bike. Who do you go to first as a Marshall running across a 50 foot gravel trap. Take your time answering, this isn't a timed quiz.
