No one has mentioned Caprossi'e early breaking forcing Spies and Hayden off the track. Have seen any comments about not being right to the limit with that manoeuvre?
I started watching MotoGP with the Valle vs Sete in Jerez, where Rossi bike was under performing but he pushed until back on terms with Sete and the ambition to win. Even the Sainted Suzy said at the time, it was all a bit boring until those last few laps.
Nexr year, when Hayden performed consistently and nearly lost - I though we were going to see a boxing match when Danny Pedrosa knocked Hayden off in the penultimate match. Remember, when Stoner ran away with his championship? Out in front and no one else in sight, pretty boring.
Yet here we are discussing a third place scrap with the championship just abut decided. Laguna Seca this year, how many tickets were sold when people knew Rossi was going to ride?
Again, it has been mentioned before, but JL mistake is going public with his grimpes. Rossi knows that it will rile him and can use it against him. Lorenzo is a great talent and we should expect that he will win championships in the future. He needs to be a bit more shrewder with his comments and put the opposition on the back foot. He might not have face a full opposition, but he stay on his bike and bagged wins.
See we are up to 96 comments on this topic. Wonder if we can get to 200 before the weekend?
