Valentino Rossi ecstatic with Sepang speed

Valentino Rossi could barely contain his delight after he finished the Sepang MotoGP test with the third best time on his much anticipated return to Yamaha’s factory squad. After a disastrous two-year spell with Ducati, Rossi answered questions about whether he was still fast enough to challenge dominant Spanish duo Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo in emphatic fashion in Malaysia. The nine-times...

Ha ha Zulu man & some other knob

So because I dislike Rossi I'm a 'cunt'. Because Stoner beats Rossi regularly he's a 'whingy twat'.

More intellectual reasoned debate from the oompa loompa's. Can you breathe and type at the same time?

I must admit I get tired of the argument against Rossi that he only ever won on the best bike in the championship - it's the same for them all. In order to win a championship, you have to be on a bike capable of doing it. Granted Stoner was able to put in a couple of heroic races together in his last couple of seasons on the Ducati, but championship contender he was not. As for Rossi being the most looked after in MotoGP - surely that title better fits either Pedrosa or Marquez for that matter. Both have been groomed from very early on in their careers by Honda and been given nothing but the best machinery throughout - some even argue that the switch to 800s was pushed by Honda so that it would suit the smaller frame of Pedrosa (though I'm not sure how much I buy into that). Casey didn't have it that hard either - except for the aforementioned couple of seasons on Ducati - the LCR Aprilia squad was one of the best teams in the smaller classes. Lorenzo too - he's never been on a bike not capable of winning the championship. All of the guys at the top have been given some of the best opportunities to get there.

ok I'll admit it

It wasn't just because he had the best bike, it was also due to the farcical lack of opposition. Ever since some other top tier riders turned up he's been 2/6. Had he had some actual competition in the first half of his career he'd probably be a four time world champion which is a much more accurate reflection of his ability.

The Trouble with Casey Stoner

was his arrogant character which gets in the way of his winning streak.. No doubt he was one hell of a rider... but can u guys explain this y the fuck it was only stoner ending up arguing with different riders...see for yourself 2008 season...refused to shake hands with rossi like a whining kid... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lboSRZT2XxI Then he punches depuniet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMUyw9N6RDY Then a low life arguement with Karel Abraham Big thumbs up to karel for not taking any shit from aussie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jki1V9QsmDE

Nos

Nos your not a cunt because you dislike Rossi. But you make yourself appear a cunt for not admitting that Rossi is still one of the best riders out their. I don't like Stoner but as a rider he was one of the quickest and he will be missed so before you make your self look more of an idiot eat humble pie and admit you are wrong about Rossi

Or DH46, Rossi

throwing his handbag, sorry helmet into Biaggi's face, or sitting sulking in Parc Ferme Mugello having been fairly beaten to come third.

Stoner gets rough shod out of control dirt tracking and brake checking against him by Yamaha's new nr.2, thumps RdeP's arm for endangering his life - for which Randy profusely apologised. Where's the parallel?

What's in a test?

Rossi just a half off the test pace, eh? There must be a few Iberian onions getting worried about the races this year.
