Absolutely apples to apples.

While race times were close as well, Rossi's times best the qualifying times as well.

So qualifying/ race laps, Rossi top 'o the pile.

Well, in my mind he's already familiar with the bike, they have setup info from other races so other than a difference in power it's not anything really different. Was he on qualifying tires?
And he broke the leg 5 weeks ago........not like it was yesterday.

Crutches man............crutches. I've only broken my foot once, but at some point I got off crutches and onto a walking cast. Thats all I'm saying.

i do think the leg is not as bad as it seems. I could be wrong but he had a titanium insert to hold the bones, not sure untill i see the x rays but when i got my titanium rod in my femur i was able to use my leg with no problem in a few days HOWEVER i broke my anckle as well so i couldn't use the leg for some time but not from the titanium but again it is hard to tell unless a real medical report is realeased. Besides that, he is impressive and made the WSBK griid look bad. SO Rossi on a Red or Yellow duc?

Silly question........RED.

My point exactly, it was a broken leg......5 weeks ago.
, women have babies and 2 weeks later they are back mowing the lawn, washing the truck and working 12 hour shifts.

46 laps... Rossi Number is 46
The leg that was broken is his rear brake leg... other than putting weight on it and sticking it out in the turn its not used. still has to be strong to hold body weight and the abuse of the ride.

Let's look at this whole Rossi WSBK thing

It's like watching a group of fat women as some skimpy dress wearing hot chic walks past them.

It's a broken bone. Wether it's a minor break or a major break...it's still a break.

WSBK best laptimes at Brno:
Crutchlow - 1:58.018
Fabrizio - 1:58.695
Biaggi - 1:58.743
Rea - 1:58.829
Xaus - 1:59.075
Guintoli - 1:59.179

Rossi's best time out of 46 laps - 1:59.135
He would have had the 6th best laptime of the weekend.
Certainly very good for somebody just hopping on the bike for the first time. And exceptional for somebody recovering from a broken leg. But not exactly "decimating" the WSBK field.

Those were Superpole times, Rossi did best the qualifying times, and certainly bested the race laps.

But you are right, he did not beat the Superpole times you listed.

With his lap times, would he have "decimated" the field? Yup methinks so

Rossi didn't break his femur, Tom. He broke his tibia and fibula, and, as you know, those usually take more time to heal because you plate and screw them, not insert rods. Break a femur and you're walking halfway normal in a week after you get the rod.

I've never been anywhere near Rossi's caliber, but I have raced with a broken lower leg that was screwed back together (and other broken bones that weren't fixed, ). I came back four weeks after the injury and raced, and it was completey doable, although quite sore. To Rossi, riding at his level is a natural thing, so I am not all surprised.

I think if his lap times were not within the realm of the top rider's lap times, the news release/ reporting would simply leave that part out of the story or say something like, "while Rossi's lap times were respectable, they were a bit off the pace for the top tier riders of the class..." or something like that. Been done before.

To me, this is a case of incredible otherworldly talent. That said, I think Elbowz could probably duplicate the effort on the SBK R1
Im not amazed, Toseland sucks and always has he got lucky twice. Look at how Rossi finished ahead of him in GP and you guys are surprised that he did better than toseland?

an excerpt from an article on superbikeplanet explaining the rods used in the repair and healing...

...""It's not abnormal for him (Rossi) to be up and walking. In fact, that would be an advisable perspective if he had the treatments that I believe he did," Miller said.

"It's not unusual at all," Miller continued, "his biggest complication would probably be is that he had a fracture that resulted with a puncture through the skin. So, when that happens, you're worried about infection. But if that is clear and the surgeon installed a orthopedic rod in his broken leg, and there are no other issues, I'd suggest that walking and riding four weeks after is not really "early" in my opinion. Two weeks, I might have advised the rider to slow down a little."

"Essentially the rod takes the place of the bone," Miller explained. "It takes the pressure, and helps the bone to heal. In fact, you may want the rider to start walking on it sooner than some think, it helps promote healing, the pressure."

yea, him and Corser are the only riders in the series history to win championships on different brands, guess that's lucky
did you even see him take it to Laconi in his backyard, in the last round, for the title??
Did you see him stick it on the front row in his first ever MotoGP ride???
I'm not his biggest fan but the man has proved he can ride.....

as for finishing behind Rossi, who the hasn't, that's hardly a basis to judge any rider
