Deciphering the Spin

Most MotoGP press officers are quite skilled at issuing quotes from riders after tests and races that are filled with words that at times say almost nothing at all.
But sometimes one quote - even one spinning on an axis of PR-speak - can speak volumes. This quote from Valentino Rossi after the test session Monday at Barcelona fits that category:
"We didn't have much new stuff, so we concentrated on testing settings, trying many different configurations," Rossi said. "In the end, we understood that the setup we settled on for yesterday's race was really the best one for this track. We tried the aluminum swingarm, which could help us in terms of grip on acceleration, but it triggers too much chatter, as opposed to during the Mugello test, where it proved to be advantageous. It will be interesting to try it again at Aragon on Wednesday."
Run that verbal maze of contradictions and confusion through the Ovaltine secret decoder ring and team PR Ouija board, and the translation may be quite simple: "We're pretty lost, man."
Rossi said earlier in the season that he is praying for rain until Valencia, the end of the season. (QUOTE ENDS)...
GOOD ON YA'S, BOB B & NOSTRO - AND NOW, ALL OUR LITTLE BOYS - THE NEW SWINGARM IS GIVING ROSSI "SEVERE CHATTER" - HEY -I DIDN'T SAY ANY OF IT - SO LET'S NOT HAVE PEOPLE LIKE MILKYBARS & HIS READING, LEARNING & COMPREHENSION DIFFICULTIES SAY ( AGAIN )THAT I DID - JUST LIKE ATTACKING ME FOR WHAT STEVE PARRISH SAID. JUST SILLY & SAD, ISN'T IT? CHEERS
