Aragon MotoGP: Valentino Rossi rues first lap error

Valentino Rossi fought back from dead last to eighth place after a costly first lap error in yesterday’s Motorland Aragon MotoGP race. The Italian had to run off the track in the braking zone at the final corner on the opening lap after he almost tangled with British rider Jonathan Rea. The close call dropped Rossi to the back of the...

Rea took the line everyone took, all the riders were going wide to take that corner, Rossi made a mistake which he admitted, although give the guy credit he showed skill and composure to keep his bike upright and avoid taking Rea out. Rea did NOTHING wrong, he was just taking a normal line, anyone who thinks otherwise obviously doesnt know much about racing.

Amateur hour..

If you look at the race footage, Rea was looking to take Hayden on power and was over half way to the left of the track. He shaped up to take Nick on the inside, decided against it late and braked early moving in front of Rossi who had nowhere to go and didn't miss his braking marker at all.

Val must have figured he had a chance of taking him around the outside of the last corner, which is an open, wide sweeping 3rd gear turn..it's not a fkin hairpin bend or chicane asswipes.. Rea changed his mind and moved onto Rossi's line leaving him no option but to pick the bike up and go straight on. He was braking hard from over 200mph.

Rea probably didn't know where Val was, but he wasn't fkin bothered either and has made sudden moves like this before which have ended with him and others on the deck. He's a liability and a hot head who is known for crashing and stacking bikes.

Take your jingoistic heads out your patriotic orange arses and try and show some balance..fuckos.  

Take a look at Forgarty's career ending clash with Ulm. Similar but Ulm's movement is nowhere near as pronounced and quick as Rea's.

Look at it any way you want

Rea did nothing wrong, Rossi committed a beginner's mistake

Golden rule - if you're behind it's up to you to react to what's happening in front. Rossi should have seen that coming a mile off, hardly unusual for someone to move to the outside of the track to get better entry. Rea doesn't know who's behind him, Rossi can see that the door that is beckoning probably won't be there when he arrives. It wasn't, his problem.

You're letting your dislike of Rea cloud your judgement. When have you ever contradicted anything Rossi says....

Stroppy little Wosi today

He really does hate it when Rossi speaks the truth, it makes it that much harder for him to reconcile his distorted reality with the actual reality happening out on track.

 "Lorenzo and Pedrosa are now in great shape and did 49.1 and not just because the factory Honda and Yamaha are better but also because they ride better than me."

A shame to see a former champion fade away. But then if anyone deserves it Rossi does.

You Cahn..

I like Rea and have championed his cause before now..but I'm not fkin blind and have probably forgotten more about tarmac racing than you'll ever know Bulto.

The day you show a bit of balance when it comes to commenting on Rossi is the day I burn my yellow panties you fkin hypocrite.

Stick to green laning pal.

Rossi's Mistake

He admitted it, what's the issue. It was the first lap, the bikes were close together so Rea may have had to adjust his initial line slightly but I didnt see it. All the bikes were going wide to take that corner and all the bikes were veering out to the kerb at the end of the straight to do it. Rea has a bit of an agressive reputation in WSB and he's had a few crashes fair enough but in his 2 GP's he's not fallen off once, he's kept it steady and controlled in order to learn to bike so he was probably the safest rider out there on Sunday.

I'll do the maths for you simpleton..

335.7 kmh = 208.6 mph

..about 200mph faster than you manage chasing that sheep down the mountainside.

Another video paying homage to your hero Wosi?

That move at 0.40s was pure Rossi / Gibernau @ Jerez...
