Loris Capirossi certain Valentino Rossi still fast enough to win

Valentino Rossi is still fast enough to challenge Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo’s recent domination of the MotoGP world championship. That’s the view of Rossi’s fellow Italian Loris Capirossi, who quit MotoGP after a record-breaking career at the end of 2011. Rossi is currently facing the biggest crisis of his illustrious career having admitted that he can’t get close to even challenging...

Well if that's not a bit of old matey dick licking.

So Loris thinks Rossi would be competitive on a M1 or RCV. But it is precisely the fact Rossi knew he couldn't beat Lorenzo over a season on the M1 that he got huffy and was shown the door. Hubris lead him to believe that the Ducati with a powerful engine just needed a little VR/JB pixie dust to give VR the edge he needs against the three young chargers. Whoops got that horribly wrong too.

Pure fantasy Mr Caprirossi, pure fantasy.

A well respected racer with an unenviable record and an incredible amount of know-how and experience at the top level…….all of a sudden becomes a moron to some on this site when he tells it like it is and people don’t like it. Funny that!

.."So Loris thinks Rossi would be competitive on a M1 or RCV".....not just Loris, but me to, along with thousands and thousands of other people. The bike isnt right, Rossi is. Put any of the gp riders on the ducati and they would all struggle. Think Rossi would rather Suzuki come back and ride for them than ducati at the moment. The question is how long will Rossi continue to try different things before his relationship with ducati becomes too strained to progress. Put him on the honda or the yamaha and he would be right up front again challenging, which is where he needs to be if he wants to be crowned the greatest of all time.

For sure....

Loris knows nothing about the capabilities of other GP riders.
I mean how could he?
The so called experts on here could never be wrong,well not in their own minds.

Capi, blind loyalty does no-one any favours. Tell your mate the truth, that'll help him far more. 

Should Vale be on a Jap bike atm then for sure results would be better but he'd still be running with Dovi/Spies/Cal at best. The current 'aliens' would blitz him.

I think both Rossi and Ducati had wished they had never got together. The dream partnership has turned into a nightmare for all concerned.

So going by the argument that Rossi would be at the front with Lorenzo and Stoner if on a M1 or RCV, then surely the same applies to Abraham and Barbera, who are every bit as fast (or faster)as Rossi on inferior machinery. Dream on.......

I wonder about this hate love thing that runs on MCN.Rossi lovers hail all he has done, and rightly so i think. Stoner lovers say Casey could put  an even less impressive Duc on pole pretty often. And yes this is true as well. Me as a Simmoncelli/Haga fan? Maybe i can be objective. So I will say this, J-Lo! Not my favorite rider or as it seems, not anyone's favorite rider? But  was it not Jorge that scored a pole in his first Moto-GP race. Didn't J-Lo have more points than Rossi before the Goat got injured? This dude deserves some credit. Focused, fast and IMO the best rider on the planet. It's nr 99

Capi Who

At least thats what Im hearing on most of the usual commentators posts... To think that all MCN had to do to get the real inside story from people who have decades of GP experience and know a thing of two about racing was to trawl through some of the user profiles on here !!! Shame on you MCN, these people trolling out the garbage about mindless Italian loyalty and how Rossi is finished despite Capirossi and many other vastly experienced riders and journalists saying otherwise, shows you are missing a vital source of information.... Blimey you lot even Casey Stoner said Rossi was still capable if Ducati gave him the right machine, you gonna disagree with him too... Every story on here, just another excuse for the same profiles to meat out the same old Rossi is the devil speeches week in week out without a shred of credibility between them.... Real lack of humility chaps....
