GREAT for Rossi to continue fighting for the win, that says he is a true racer something that i aknowledge

Regarding lap times---------- WAIT FOR IT -----------




THAT IS AWESOME SINCE NICKY IS RIDING THE DUC NEXT YEAR, so maybe he goes 1'29.000 on a DUC and I WILL BE HAPPY

I think you got me confused with Stoner lover, i am a Ducati fan and will want my rider to win so next year GO NICKY!!!!!!!, you in the other hand mmmm..... got Dingowned lol

Alberto,

Dingo started pole - had no fights with anyone - from the start.

Rossi started 12th - 4th row, had to fight his way up, and Toseland wasted a good 5-6 laps of Rossi's and also burned alot of his rubber. (Props to Toseland).

Rossi still finished 2nd - and given a couple extra laps would have probably owned Stoner aswell :P!

Sorry bud - but the 2007 Ducati is not the same any more (power wise), everyone else has caught up.

And next year with Hayden onboard - it's gonna be good publicity and marketing for Ducati in America, but I highly doubt he'll threat Rossi or Pedrosa for that matter.

But I'm glad for all 4 - Rossi for 2nd and securing his 8th Championship. Stoner for well riding a usual solid, with no issues or fights. For Hayden to keep his job in MotoGP . Most importantly for Toseland - being himself and riding and challenging who ever the is in front of him



Here's a question - did anyone see the "Michelin Man" adverisment boards all over the track?

Sad eh? :(

I base it on the fact he cant ride a 800cc bike worth a squat.
if they go back to 1000cc sure he's the best. but he cant do anything with the slower bike.

now lets hope he knuckles down for what is left of the season and makes no more stupid predictions that he can't live up too which then knocks his confidence (see Donnington).

Why?

Because - they won't be there no more next year.

It's all Bridgestone next year. Good for MotoGP and tight racing, but very sad day for production and research that we street riders, club racers get 5-6 years down the road.

He is the WSBK Champion. He's ridden with the best in his own league. I think he was riding his 'satelite' Yamaha to the limit when he was between Rossi and Lorenzo (who were both on 'factory' Yamahas).

He was doing very well - if he you notice his lines, they were very different from every other rider, he was also blocking very well and clean.

His only blunder cost him a couple spots, and Dovizio. I think he took Dovizio wide with him while trying to make an inside pass on the last lap, him and Dovizio went wide - openin the door for both Nakano and Lorenzo.

Dovizio was later on and "gave him(me) those eyes" quote - Toseland

But its riders like himself and Dovizio that proof if ridden to the limits, the 'satelites' bike can sure give to the factory boys!
