Valentino Rossi excited ahead of Yamaha return

Sunday’s final MotoGP round in Valencia is almost a sideshow as the world awaits Valentino Rossi’s much anticipated return to Yamaha in next week’s traditional two-day test session. Rossi will end his two-year Ducati nightmare in Spain on Sunday before moving back to partner newly crowned world champion Jorge Lorenzo in Yamaha’s official factory squad. The 33-year-old Italian spoke of his...

Hey....

I think you've solved it Keanu... :laugh:

Fcuk me, this is the best thread I have ever read on this site.  Imagine the possibilities, we could bring Hailwood and Simo back for next year and hav Cal from 2014 riding in 2013 with himself from 2013 as his team mate instead of Braders.  It would save on Herve's wage bill and give Cal a good chance of a top 3 title finish if not a stab at the crown.

... which half is right, and which half is wrong?

Are you saying that Stoner won on an RC213V which may have been slower or quicker than a GP10 (if he was riding it - which he wasn't) and, two years later, finished 8 seconds ahead of himself on the same bike? Magic.

If now is five years time from last week, Nostro is still. will be, and always was a boring cunt with fuck all of any value to say.

Rossi and Lorenzo

"I completely fail to see..." Nostro.

Couldn't have put it better myself!

Returning back to earth, I think Rossi will do well. He's still young enough, clearly has a few more goals in motogp, enjoys racing, and is still (very) fast, regardless of his resuts with the Duke.

It's a smart move by Yamaha. With Casey gone, Lorenzo and Rossi will be a very strong team, plus they have a brilliant marketing potential with No 46.

Still, it's a great pity Casey is gone. It would have made for an epic season. Then again, we may still get one...

It's not me that's clever, it's you that's........

Man, I revealed nothing that most followers of the sport here would not already know.

The fault was yours; you had no idea what you were talking about. Oh, and btw, I thought Rossi was with Yamaha for one year, it now appears he's signed up for two. But hey, what would they know?

Back on planet earth, isn't Pedrosa starting to (finally) shine, eh? Even with Casey gone, next year is looking like it's going to be a great season, wot with Lorenzo and Rossi on the Yamahas, Pedrosa firing,  the new boy Marquez, plus Cal on the Tech 3, and...

...Dovisioso on the Ducati. Very interested to see how he goes. A good move by him, I think, as he gets a good pay cheque (not to be sniffed at) and a works bike, albiet a 'problem' works bike. Then again, wIth the new owners of Ducati, maybe the combination of the two with start to turn things around. I hope so.
