That is all I was pointing out.... you usually do not want to try and pass someone dirty you consider a friend and fellow rider no matter what the event is... Unless you are Rossi and Sete.

The rule I have been told is pass how you would like to be passed. Otherwise words may be shared in the pits. Which, I am sure both of us have witnessed first hand. :eh:

I saw an actual fight at the Katy track last year in the pits during one of our endurance races.

There are 17 races this season. Rossi has won 5 or 6. The most he was ever won in a season is 8 or 9. Guess what, somebody else won the rest of the races.


Rossi is a gawd, but he doesn't always finish first. :icon_bigg

My biggest fear is taking out another rider. I wouldn't want it done to me, and I have an overly guilty conscience that would hound me if I did it to someone else.

Well, it did happen earlier this year in TMGP. In a 3-way battle, trying to pass a little motard. Dang 4-strokes can drive out of the corners better than my 2-stroke, so trying to use corner speed to my advantage, I managed to pull up next to the 'tard and as I was going by, my front brake lever hit his elbow. :eh:

I went down instantly and the guy who was following right behind me got collected by my bike (just like the stoner/gibernau incident this weekend) My bike was actually ok to keep riding, but the other guy was sprawled out. He did managed to crawl off the track, so I picked up my bike and pushed it off into the grass and removed the junk so that no else would hit it and go down. Then I went over to check on the other guy. He was hurting pretty good, as it turned out he had 'racked' himself pretty good on the gas tank and was ok. *phew* But to make it worse, he was on a borrowed bike. :BangHead:



So as it turns out, I won't be getting that HRC contract for next season. :laughing6 :laughing6

[QUOTE=BlackWidow]I read and I read and I read ....

I'll stay out of this as much as possible, coz i'm pro Rossi.

But here are some of my thoughts (not Pro Rossi hopefully, or anything to do with him).


1) Pedrosa is a far much better and aggressive rider then Hayden (as a couple people stated above). However Hayden is far more experienced and alot more consistent.

2) Pedrosa is a Spanish Rider, in a Spanish Sport with Spanish majority in the powers and offices calling the suspension shots and what's at stake. Hayden is an American rider, who i'm just proud to say at this age is doing what he's doing. (Can't believe i'm saying that).

3) When Hayden passed Pedrosa a lap before, that was not a clean pass at all, but he made it stick and that's what counts. Pedrosa tried to do the same, and did'nt make it stick and took Hayden down. Imagine what you all what be saying if Hayden took Pedrosa out? :eh: Funny when you think of the other story eh?

4) I do not Blame Hayden for his pass, that aggravated Pedrosa. OR Pedrosa for taking Hayden out! But i do blame HRC for not giving team orders. Had they given team orders, Pedrosa could have blocked for Hayden!

HRC is just too far up its own A$$ and i love the fact that Rossi is teaching them a lesson, ever since he went over to Yamaha! HRC treats Hayden like the unwanted child and favors Pedrosa - they desperately want a Spanish rider to take the cup (go figure!). HRC should have given team orders!

We're talking 8 Honda riders to 4 Yamaha riders. If they wanted they could have done it. I don't even consider the Yamaha Tech 3 as a blocking instruement (an opposition might say similar about the Minolta camp.).

However it could easily have been 2 Camel Yamaha's VS. 4 Honda's, the Repsol team along with the Fortuna Honda team. We all know what Melandri is capable of doing. And if Elias could have blocked from the front (obviously he has nothing to lose!), Hayden could have faired out much better.

I Blame Honda and only Honda - not Hayden nor Pedrosa.

5) In my opinion, one of the reason's Hayden is even in the top 5 is because every other top 5 runner kept on falling or getting taken out or having mechanical issues! Like Rossi, Capirossi, Melandri and Pedrosa. If these 4 would have run clean and without issues - Hayden would not even be in the top 5! For 's Sake, the Kentucky Kid got his first Podium in 2003 when they penalized Tamada, that's his first Podium! Haha..:laughing6

So call him consistent all you want, but its coz others kept on Fuggin up.

I'm kinda glad he got a DNF - coz now it evens the score with Rossi, Capirossi and others..but (i dont wanna sound Pro Rossi - so i digress).

6) In his interview he says, "I Told Dani we run 1 and 2 in Valencia and that's the only way possible".

IN regards to that - is he seriously talking about Rossi like he's on a go-kart and its THAT EASY! Come on, we're talking about Rossi here (there i go again being Rossi pro).

He did very well in his interview, except for those "Puffs and Peufs! " Totally goes with his image of showing up in Shorts to his contract resign! Grow up dude!, you were doing soo well in your interview keeping your feelings in, but did you have to bad mouth Rossi like that!?


What i did like however in the interview as when he said " I mean i don't sign the guy's checks! Honda pays him to race hard - and that's what he did!"

That kinda was nice to see Hayden diss HRC, and still did'nt bash Pedrosa THAT much. I'd hate to be Honda right now as Yamaha and Ducati and all look at Honda and laugh - haha, some team planning bozos!



But time will tell - when next season, Pedrosa will be the real threat to Rossi rather then Hayden...time will tell Pedrosa being the better of the two HRC riders..:confused2[/QUOTE

are you a ? or dont understand english? he never bad mouthed rossi. he simply stated what they have to do to win. :confused2

No. - Just my observations. Feel free to differ logically or with reasons - not with personal attacks. Although, you just proved your one of them who "grow their on the internet!" :laughing6

I'm not here to do that - just have a conversation.

Why does everyone keep slamming Hayden? Saying he is only where he is at because others fugged up? That is racing!

You may lap me 5 times but if you crash out and I end up winning.... that is racing.

If you lap me 5 times and then your motor blows and I end up winning.... that is racing.

Obviously Nicky has been doing his part as a rider all year and is winning races.

Sorry, just a little rant but Hayden is in the run for the title. It does not matter what has previously gone down. He is there and he was running in 3rd. That is obviously a sign that he is doing what he is supposed to be doing.

Nicky's won 2 so far this year.


Anybody remember AMA superbike champ Thomas Stevens? I don't think he won at all that season.

No you did'nt ask a question. You wer doing what you can only do on the internet and that's ask retorical questions and act like a wiseguy, calling other people in a condescending manner.

you said "are you a " or "do you not understand english"

By reading my post that i made - even an idiot would make sense that i know english - so obviously your growing here trying to ask me a stupid question of "are you a ".

Try to keep your nice pretty words to yourself - and a little respect never hurt anyone. Let alone calling out someone you don't even know. I hope we never meet, your one person i could live without meeting in the real world. :confused1
