Valentino Rossi fit for Phillip Island despite test absence

Valentino Rossi will be fit to ride in next weekend’s Australian MotoGP race, despite withdrawing from a vital 1000cc test at the Jerez circuit today with a hand injury. The 32-year-old was due to ride Ducati’s GP12 in Spain but had to withdraw with a left hand injury picked up when he crashed out on the first lap of last Sunday’s...

What's going on?

Expectations unmet, garden paths, false dawns, myth busting,  obfuscation and pressure building. Something's going to give soon with a very loud bang.

Let's be fair, guys ...

Rossi has actually  "broken" the finger - and this adds to some prior damage there sustained way back in 1995 @ Assen. Reports say it is very swollen and painful, despite not appearing to be a big problem immediately post-race. I have a dodgy left thumb from a big impact years ago that can still be agonising, given the right "tweak". Being just a mere mortal - no specialist tendon and God knows what other microsurgery for this little brown duck - more's the pity! Even for a top talent, trying to ride & control a 240 hp GP bike must be more than a bit of a worry?

Some of you cretins just crack me up. These incredible athletes ride with injuries that would have us in bed and calling for our spouses or Mummies. Please don't diminish what you can't or don't understand, OK?

And before anyone ese says it, yes - I have been a critic of Rossi this year about his total failure to get to grips with the Desmosedici - however - that isn't anything like the same thing as wishing him, or any other rider physical harm. I admire and respect Rossi for his talent and his sensational past record - along with the bravery and talent of all the others too. His manipulative and hubristic bitchiness in more recent years has caused me to go off him as a person - not for what he has done on a racing motorcycle. Cheers

Why does Aquarius' comment come as a surprise?

WWB? Over the years he has been very clear and consistent with his perspective.

UNCONDITIONAL ROSSI WORSHIP DEFINED:

The last few months have been illuminating for anyone capable of independent, rational thought. I mentioned recently that no-one, however iconic - is allowed, permitted, licensed or whatever - to criticize or even cast any slight doubt whatsoever on the alleged Zombie Ubermensch, Valentino Rossi. To do so is to bring down the wrath of the blindly-adoring, Cyclopean hordes.
 

To reinforce and prove this knee-jerk silliness– here’s an illustration for you: twice now and very recently I have posted verbatim quoted comments from giants of the sport to support the really very obvious reality that Rossi is struggling like buggery and should have done better, whilst at the same time, Casey Stoner (who got numerous Wins and Podiums on the same bike that so baffles Rossi), is marching from strength to strength and will win the 2011 MotoGP Championship Title. That will be 2 x GP Titles on 2 different marques of machine. Go on – I know the history exactly – far better than you ever could - but you know you want to...so, make dickheads of yourselves, again.
 

These luminaries included Cristian Gabbarini (ex-Ducati and now Stoner’s HRC Team Leader), Filippo Preziosi (no intro needed), Carlo Pernat (ditto) and Giacomo Agostini – please note - all Italian, OK? Add to these commentators the experience, stature and vast knowledge of Mat Oxley, a Brit who has raced at the highest level and also been involved up to his neck in motorcycle GP PR and Journalism for many years. Oxley has won TT’s and got 2nd at the Le Mans 24 hour back in 1984.
 

When I posted THEIR verbatim comments and made it crystal clear that these were THEIR views and not mine – several slobbering geniuses on MCN still wanted to take issue and argue with me. Talk about just not “getting it” and a case of not liking the message – so – try and kill the messenger! Anyway... I found a particularly apt quote to cover this ongoing hopelessly dead-headed, dumb-arsed, biased nonsense and myopic bullshit and show it below. Enjoy - all those with half a brain. The rest – you would never understand it anyway. Cheers
 

Tattered washing on the line
It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish, and crawls insanely up to the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.
