Valentino Rossi boosted by practice pace

Valentino Rossi quickly brushed off the crushing disappointment of his first lap exit in his home race in Mugello recently to give himself a huge confidence boost on the opening day of practice in Catalunya. The nine-times world champion topped the practice timesheets for the first time in 2013 after a best lap of 1.42.297 put him just 0.049s clear of...

And hugelean...

he's been there all along, so should be the most familiar with all aspects of the technology in the series, including a heads up on tyre tech as Bridgestones very own employee.

btw I believe Doohan was winning championships at 34 so drop the fuckin' excuses you arse licker. You're such an apologist, it's pathetic.

You possess that rarest of skills in which your inane ramblings have the ability to make Wosi's tosh have the faintest whiff of plausibility.

Your analogy defies comprehension. You want a dead bloke to come back and race a 41 year old around the island whilst on a road bike? You might as well say nr.46 only beat the young guns on his M1 whilst they were mini bike mounted fetuses. At 34 years old the world nr.6 is at the top of his game. He's never been faster. Pre season he said he was as motivated as he's ever been for the fight ahead. Thing is, there's few who are faster and better riders. Watch the T.V it'll show you this. Electronics have fack all to do with it, remembering the old boy is one of the heaviest users of this modern GP drug.

The RCV 212V Honda's finest? How about a little trip into the history books. You might discover the RVF's of the mid late eighties and the NSR's of the mid late nineties. It gradually matured into a fine racing motorcycle, but In HRC terms the RCV212 was an unmitigated failure for the majority of its lifecycle.

2008 Yes nr.46 did dominate the same woefully handling Ducati that Stoner handed him his arse on in 2007. 2009 would've been a very different story if Stoner didn't chunder in his hat with his debilitating lactose intolerance. Nr.46 never dominated 2009. Lorenzo was still learning the game on an inferior spec M1. Pedrosa was still waiting for his big class balls to fully drop, which they subsequently have, while HRC floundered development wise with an ill handing under powered machine, somewhat akin to Ducati's current wilderness years. Dani still won on the thing though. That's what true top draw riders like Stoner and Pedrosa can do. Win despite their machinery.

Finally whilst the world nr.6's record is impressive it has to be judged in the context of a very dodgy Uncle in conjunction with the mans own machiavellian personality. Honestly there's absolutely nothing in the world nr.6's personality makeup I can say is admirable. It's a sad indictment on the shallow vacuousness of the world that so many halfwits like yourself have been conned by this man and his fawning press.

Time to give the bike back Rossi....

Give up while you still have a small shred of `cred,tell your latest "mug" employer,to give your bike to someone with the skill to use it. There are plenty of candidate`s in Moto gp and Moto2. This is what happen`s when "real" competition come`s along. Dream-world piss stained sheep,take note.

hmmm...

Dreaming, as it turned out.

Six races in and with all the practice sessions that go with them you would think that Rossi would have sorted things out... guess not.

Maybe those Michelin overnight specials realy did do the trick.
