Lorenzo and Stoner are "" says the GOAT



Quote:
'Young MotoGP riders are ' - that was the controversial claim made recently by seven time champion Valentino Rossi.

Rossi made the comment in response to criticism by the likes of Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo about the on-track conduct of Rossi and hard-riding fellow Italian Marco Simoncelli, respectively.

Unsurprisingly, the comment arouse during the pre-event press conference at Le Mans on Thursday, beginning with class-veteran Colin Edwards being asked if the claim was true:

“[Yes] they are just a bunch of !" replied Edwards. "No, I retract that statement...

“There's obviously been some statements in the press about this and that, but I'm still working on my pace to be up there with those guys to talk sh*t about them!”

24-year-old reigning world champion and 2011 points leader Lorenzo, one of the main targets of Rossi's words, was later asked for his response.

After being told that the phrase, in polite terms, meant some young MotoGP riders were behaving like 'kids', Lorenzo - in a presumed dig at Rossi - replied:

“I don't know. I guess it must be a little shame to be beaten by 'kids'. Every race...”

At that point 37-year-old Edwards couldn't resist jumping in: “Yes, it's a shame! And I didn't even call them !”

Meanwhile, Rossi brushed off his latest clash with Stoner, who is said to have obstructed the Ducati rider during the post-race Estoril test:

“In reality it was nothing special... nothing happened... No problem,” said the 32-year-old, whose feud with Stoner was reignited when he brought the Australian down in a race-accident during round two at Jerez.

So many fueds going on in the premier class this season makes the storyline that much more interesting during the race though! Especially when those involved in the back-and-forth get into dogfights like Valentino/Jorge @ Motegi last season Can't wait for Le Mans on Sunday!

Lorenzo tries so hard to be like Rossi, it's pitiful. Simoncelli would stomp his anyway...

I would love to go again, I figure if I knock off 5 seconds a day, 2 or 3 more days and I wippin Colin, yea, thats the way it works right, I told Colin he seen me pick up 5 seconds in 1 day that I expected him to do the same this race and he said he would be happy with 5 thousands or hundreds, seriously guys this is the weekend U wont ever forget, what a great environment, and the fact that its right here in our own backyard is awesome, lots of people are flying in from all over the world and imagine what there total cost is, could easily double the price, it really is a bargain, save your moniey and go I promise U wont regret it, but Ur gonna be sore from all the riding and laughing
