Le Mans MotoGP: Valentino Rossi revels in first Ducati podium

Valentino Rossi toasted his first Ducati podium in Le Mans yesterday after the Italian finished the French MotoGP race in third position. The 32-year-old just failed to defeat compatriot Andrea Dovizioso for the second successive race, but Rossi was still jubilant to show the increasing potential of the factory GP11 machine. Using a new carbon fibre frame he first tested in Estoril...

Jog on! - yeah back out to the playground now, run along. It is a bike forum indeed, so stick to bike racing rather than your aggresive and down right offensive comments that I don't think anyone has really got time for. You sound like a 13 year old who has just found his first copy of Viz, I would also think before using words like "retard" in your posts, were you not banned for that kind of naughty behaviour before. Enjoy the hand job from your mate, and no looking at bad pictures on Daddy's computer.

9 titles.....

Ha Ha indeed.

Maybe though his time is ending (or even ended?) and his record will forever be nine. I never disrespect Rossi as great champion and his record is without question. Shame the Rossi mafia cannot do the same when he is soundly beaten by the better guy without resorting to the Casey Moaner gags.

Titles are great history to look back at, the racing is now.

Nice to see Rossi and the Duke get a podium...bout time

How well deserved it was too. He was obvisouly prepared to hold station and not do anything stupid as it was obvious the Hondas would dominate again, and they did. Rossi looked on to settle for 5th or 6th bit the obvious elevation for Lorenzo and Dovizio gave Rossi a smell of the podium so he did what any racer would do and went for it. Lorenzo was very easily disposed of and Dovi (riding one of the totally dominating Honda machines) proved difficult but not impossible on the 'coming together nicely' Ducati. Finally the Ducati has some consistency with Rossi at the helm. No  more do-or-die races but solid places. Lets face it the Hondas are taking the top spots and probably will all year. Taking Lorenzo must have felt great. What an awesome feeling after being kicked down by the media, half the pricks on this forum and his own team mate not to mention everyone expecting him to win instantly on a bike even its most experienced rider was crashing on last year.

Minty Fresh we love ya fella.

 

Regards Stoner...He's awesome. Better than Doohan.

Casey, the titles yours. If you don't win this year there aint anyone to blame kid. You and that bike are like crackers and cheese mate, tea and milk. You have no competition now Diddy's gone the way of the bone breaker. I'll be celebrating for ya come Valencia when you've already lifted that trophy. Awesome rider. Probably the best there is now. Not a chance Lorenzo or Rossi will give him any greif this year. The Duke won't ever make a win and Lorenzo's Yam looks tired. Come on Casey!!!!!!

Very good, I admire your persistance to trawl through all of that. I must admit I couldn't even be bothered to read it through. As I said previously, Rossi's record as a great champion is without question. I first witnessed Rossi on track in a European Championship 125cc race back in 1995. Even before he came to GP's it was clear he was out of the ordinary.

However, his stunning career record wasn't actually the point. We were I believe only discussing the 800's era. My feeling is that Rossi may be the greatest of all time, but now in a new dawn he is no longer the 'stand out' champion he once was. This does not intend to devalue his overall career, just to accept that times have changed.
