Moto GP San Marino, Italy spoiler

VR46 takes the win!!!! I know, I know, all you Marquez lovers are going to pounce all over this one....BUT, I don't think anyone but Rossi was going to take this win...his home town, his track, his day. He also got another 2 year contract with Yamaha it was good to see the Doc. take a win from Marquez, even if he did crash out (still gotta give props to MM, he goes down and finishes 16th)

Great race indeed. I'm still wanting to see MM take the championship but the Doctor showed that old guys like us should still be feared.

It was a great race! I'm extremely happy for Rossi! He rode the out of that bike!

I may be way off track here, but it almost seemed that rossi was just trying to keep mm away from lorenzo...but lorenzo couldnt keep mm at bay...im glad rossi didnt wait for any help, because it wasnt going to be there! This may be the only win rossi gets this yeay, but DAM it was a good one

I'm not sure Rossi was only ever just trying to hold of MM. He passed up Jorge pretty early on and went for it.

It was great to see VR battle and put Marc on the edge enough that he made his one and only mistake so far this year.

There's a good article in roadracing world about Rossi and Yamaha and braking with the new seamless Yamaha transmission. Rossi says Honda had a 1 or 2 second per lap advantage just through the transmission. Now that Yamaha is providing the same technology, Rossi could be learning and gaining speed each round. Yaya for Rossim, the "Old Guy" LOL.

Maybe it's me but it looks like MM doesn't perform as well when he is seriously challenged and has to fight strong riders. Granted, this was his worst mistake so far but when he gets into heavy scraps, he seems to get frustrated and makes more mistakes. Usually he just runs wide but today Rossi seemed to push him over his limit.

Normally he has had such better pace than everyone there weren't really huge battles that he didn't just bide his time and pass whenever he had the advantage. Then he slowly pulled away. It's nice to see him lose, but deep down I wanted him to set the record for consecutive wins. With that being said then...

VALE! VALE! VALE!!!
