Stereotyping

What you write about the Italians is boringly stereotypical.

In fact, an Italian demonstrated the bravest possible behaviour in recent times when Al-Quaeda in Iraq were at the point of beheading him and he fought to stand up and said to his captors "This is how an Italian dies".

That is truly humbling courage in my book.

With respect to Rossi, it has been an unfortunate episode with Ducati but looking on the bright side, it cements Mike Hailwoods reputation as the best motorcycle racer of all time (Hailwood was notable for getting the very best out of whatever he rode).

Ago's Leap

Its called Ago's Leap (IoM) because he was one of the few brave souls to keep it pinned at that part of the circuit.

I saw Ago in a 350cc race at Brands in mid-1970's where he was way down the field on his now totally out-classed MV by a whole bunch of Yamaha TDCs.

Then a miracle happened ... it started raining and within one lap Ago was leading the field as the Yams spat off their riders left right and centre.

Ago won by miles, a fantastic racer.
