you would have thought the young whipper-snapper lorenzo would 've been fitter faster n more agile then Mr Rossi. But once again Rossi shows he's the man, Gwan Rossi!!!

what they should have done is had  Rossi n lorenzo holding there hands out in front like handlebars and making engine revving, down changes changes n braking noises/actions as they traversed the stairs n corners!

Hahaha that would have been brilliant and oh so funny to see them do that for a laugh ;-) ( i want a remake)

anyway good luck and safe racing to all those guys.

N like i said to you James(Toseland) ; KEEP SAFE MATE

Gorgeous Jorge

Since when has Lorenzo had 99 as his number?  Wasn't he 48 last season?  Or has he changed it because he didn't have much luck with it last year.

What an awful video, that ranks alongside that guy flogging his own double glazing with the long hair and the cape, pants!

Stoner Dig

Weird. Probably hilarious to italians

Loved the dig at Stoner on the hallway wall of Yamaha.

Watch again and spy  the 3 blown up shots of Rossi taking to the dirt of the Corkscrew at Laguna where he stuffed Stoner.

Love it!

Rossi's 09 bike..

Those bikes are most likely just for the press launch and havnt got the FULL valentino or Lorenzo touches.. Valentino is apparently very supersticious, (tuggin the right footpeg, pullin his wedgie out b4 leavin the pits etc...). He is alo the sam ewith his personal stickers, such as guido, The doctor and the Rossifumi graphics. Im sure we will see them all, (and probably some new ones), back soon!!.. Does any1 know WHY Lorenzo is now 99?? Besides many other personal reasons, surely not a good merchandise move??..
