Nostro of old in from the cold?

Fantastic post Nostro! Try and "Not be arsed" more often........ Not that you should care but I concur with your comments. Much like my reference to Spencer your Poggialli prognosis seems to fit the bill. 

For some time now I have thought that Rossi just didn't get on with the bike, combined with the broken leg (1st proper injury of his long career not that I think any rider should get injured... ever), and a crook shoulder (ouch) with the inherent long recovery time. 

Add to that nightmare of nearly taking the  head off of one of your mates and the unavoidable consequences of that accident. The fire could easily have been reduced to a few embers and he doesn't even know it? With his spate of Ducati front end crashes and lack of confidence in the feel he gets from the bike.... maybe he is subconciously concerned he could be seriously injured if he comes off in a crowd?

I think Hayden is on it at Jerez because of the conditions and he is proported to perform better at left handed circuits because he is a Yank. Ah yes I know Jerez isn't an anti clockwise circuit but turns 3 & 4 (Doohan and McWilliams career killers) and 7 & 8 are big boy, big balls drifters which....... go left.

Funnily enough I am wishing Nicky a really good result here but won't get excited about his performance on the Duke for at least 3 more races and then we will see how the positions are shaking out.

Ciao....

Last season for VR?

I must say I do admire the VR fan club, whose ambition for their favourite rider certainly out weighs his talent. Face the facts he is history. The only reason he still turns up to MOTO GP is because he has a legal obligation to do so i.e. a contract with his employers to do so, I do not believe he has the belly for it any more. For sure this is his last season.

If it all clicks into place for him then he will win again.

Best of luck for Cal tomorrow.

Three and a half seconds. Not three teenths, three and a half bleedin' seconds! And you're telling me he's still mentally strong? In comparison to you maybe! Rossi conceded defeat to Lorenzo the moment he walked away from Yamaha, and to Stoner the moment he tipped the Ducati into turn one at Valencia 2010. Have you not read any of the words the man himself has spoken?

Thanks Willie. You make good points regarding the subconscious nature of Rossi's problems and steel shoed Nicky.

The Italian dream team what was supposed to be looks all but over Ducati has a new lead rider in Nicky does not bode well in the Rossi camp.
