Valentino Rossi relieved to escape injury in qualifying crash

Valentino Rossi said he was lucky to emerge unscathed from a crash in the fastest corner in an incident-packed qualifying session ahead of tomorrow's Spanish MotoGP showdown at Jerez.

GOAT Pens

The measure of the world Nr.6's 2013 competitiveness, or otherwise, in the ultra cut-throat environ of MotoGP could not be in sharper focus than the race track of Jerez - scene of much past sucess for said rudiment in an age of circumstantial control.

How much more of this wheezing and gasping can Yamaha's marketing department stand? Afterall how many 16 year old 150cc scoot buyers in South East Asia knows who Valentino Rossi is? Winners are all that matter for young consumers. Dead wood is, well, just that....

Good

thing none of the front runners who crashed were hurt.
Crutchlow, Rossi, Pedrosa and Marquez.
Should be another good race.

Dead wood Nostro ?

More self-analysis then ?    Perhaps that's why you're a wooden spoon!    Four of the top five crashed out this afternoon or had that escaped your wooden head ?

Pressure

Not just Rossi feeling it. Sure it's been a good track for him in years gone by, but the rest of the top guys were all on the edge, and all because of Jorge. Still, there is the small matter of the race to come.

The new quali format is adding to the problem

As the guys have around 10 minutes to book a place on the front row. At least you could put in an early 'banker' with the old format... Wasn't Rossi being accused of not pushing the Pig last year - now he's pushing too hard trying to catch Jorge? SUNDAY is what matters anyway guys...

Saturn...

I think the point is that Rossi is not doing justice to the factory Yamaha. But let's focus on the positive: we have a British rid on the 2012 bike making your man look a little overpaid and past it.

It's Ok I know what the point is - just can't resist having a pop at the Nostro the Kiwi fruitcake!

Bob - What is the excuse for the other 3 aliens crashing ?  All trying to keep up with Jorge ?

You know what ? The bias of the Orange Munchkins is much greater than the Yellow Oompa Loompa's.

Hahahaha
