Valentino Rossi reflects on disastrous first lap exit

Valentino Rossi was fortunate to escape injury after the Italian’s hopes of claiming a home podium in Mugello were ended by a disastrous first lap collision with Spaniard Alvaro Bautista. The factory Yamaha rider was trying to gain lost ground after a sluggish start from seventh on the grid when he collided with Bautista’s Gresini Honda RC213V at just the third...

You have it wrong, I haven't rubbished Stoners achievements or his results. He is a bloody good rider and did amazing things on a motorcycle. Maybe you could question his tactics and state of mind, but everyone is human. It was only his demeanor I didn't like, so if I did say anything untoward, it was probably just to wind up the anti Rossi brigade.

The man raced from the age of 4. He set untold records in his youth. He and his family moved half way across this planet to 'follow the dream'...

Can you name a rider that haven't?

poor old Rossi

There is no question that Rossi is past his prime but I'd say a podium was definitely possible for Mugello. His second place finish at the opening race was a good performance and he showed some superb race-craft. The boy just needs some luck...

that Valentino has won

7 or 9 championships El D doesn't mean that championships won by other riders didn't really happen or have no value though, which seems to be the general line of argument of you and others, and it is that line of argument to which exception is mainly taken.

your addition is faulty El D

5 +2+1 = 8 actually, not that this is particularly relevant to the question of whether world championships has value if they are won by riders other than Valentino Rossi, which again is where all this started and why this and all other forums have descended to petty name calling .

..... Nobody liked him? The MotoGP grid isn't the X Factor, there are no buzzers and the riders haven't got 2 minutes to impress or they're out with a flea in their ear!!? It's not about popularity (although, the more popular the more merchandise they sell), it's about riding a bike as fast and as hard as possible, getting as far up the field as you can and gaining the most points as possible. It's an easy system for scoring and the only talent you need is what you do on the bike. Smiling and waving at the camera and the fans is an added extra and some do it, some don't. Your love of Vale is fine, he's a good rider and gives time to his fans, I liked Stoner because he was a good rider who gave it everything. Just because he didn't put a pantomime together for every other Sunday, doesn't mean he was shit, a twat or nobody liked him. As I said, it's not a popularity contest, it's about riding the bike you've been given.
