Cal Crutchlow: “Rossi still one of the best”

Cal Crutchlow said Valentino Rossi’s brilliant return to the podium in a rain-hit French Grand Prix on Sunday proved the Italian is still one of the best riders in the world. Rossi claimed his first rostrum for 12 months and best Ducati finish when he finished second in Le Mans after coming out on top of separate thrilling battles with Crutchlow...

come on elbowz, don't start blaming everyone else again .... Spies simply isn't good enough at this level.  his confidence is now shattered as the burden of expectation has got the better of him.  it's not a lack of talent, he just can't handle the pressure whn things are going wrong - and no doubt he feels that he doesn't have full support from Yamaha management.  Le Mans was fringing on farce for Spies, at least the only way is up ..... i think .....

Spies keeps going on about chatter and "feel". Which sounds not unlike Rossi's complaints. However Spies is finishing behind Rossi, even though he clearly has the better bike of the two. So Spies is having trouble adapting to the 1 litre M1 and to this year's tyres? Well most people are either adapting their setup and their riding to the tyres and the new fronts should reduce the chatter issue anyway. So that's one excuse gone. And he can't keep blaming the bike. There's clearly nothing wrong with it so he should have adapted by now. At Le Mans chatter was clearly not an issue for anyone. So Ben needed a new excuse. Visor misting? Even though he wasted about 90 seconds pitting he still wasn't near the pace when he came out again. Not looking good for him at all. Not only will Yamaha be getting tired of his excuses, but other teams will be noting it two. So far he's had over twenty starts on a factory bike and only one win. And there's many reckon he wouldn't have had that win if Simoncelli hadn't taken Lorenzo out on lap 1. Not a good record if he's looking for a factory ride for next year. Never mind Ben, I'm sure there's a CRT team who'll have you.

Ben on a CRT bike more like a trip back to WSBK me thinks well I hope so and go for a second title know that would be something. Many reckon he wouldn't have had that win if Simoncelli hadn't wiped Lorenzo out my ass he deserved that win not even Stoner could stop him Ben rode a perfect race everytime Casey responded Ben had enough in hand to stop him from getting anywhere near not even JL would have matched his lap times.

yet another bitter post from elbowz.  Toni Elias won a MotoGP race but i doubt he'll be remembered as one of the GP greats, and it'll be the same with Spies.  i'm sure Ben will go back to WSB to join the rest of the MotoGP refugees, wanabees and retirees, and will probably do quite well.

and another thought - no rider deserves a race win - they have to be earned.  don't forget that fact.
