Assen MotoGP: Rossi takes dominant win

Valentino Rossi took his 80th premier class win with a dominant performance at Assen today onboard the factory Yamaha. The victory marks Rossi's first win since the Malaysian grand prix in 2010. Starting from the second row, Rossi moved up to third at the end of the first lap with a hard move on German Stefan Bradl at the final chicane. On lap...

The Doctor will now see you

Dominant indeed! Hardly put a foot wrong. Shame the BBC cut off the coverage on the podium.

Another

lucky win for Rossi to go with the other 79.

He only won because Lorenzo hurt himself and Cal got a slow start and Marquez got slowed by Pedrosa and Spies got injured and Ducati are crap and Stoner retired and Bradl and Bautista are struggling, and he has the best bike.

Brilliant race

Congratulations all around today, 4 brilliant rides in the top 5 finishers. Rossi rode like he was 24, cut his way ruthlessly to the front, controlled the pace and then pulled away. 80 wins is a mind-boggling number. Marquez, brilliant again, pure entertainment, and you could almost hear him say 'fuck you old man' as he swept past Dani. Again on the last lap, all bets are off, and he ruthlessly dealt with a faster Cal. Cal, usual crap start and difficult first few laps, but what makes MotoGP so watchable is if you have the talent you can come from miles back. More importantly, Lin put huge pressure on him to come in ahead of Dani, and he did it along with grabbing a podium. There's something slightly bizarre about seeing a satellite Yam overtaking a factory Honda piloted by one of the best riders in the world. Can we please give the guy some respect? Or at least the trick fuel tank? Finally, ride of the day to Jorge. He isn't human. He has to be a machine. What he did wasn't possible.

Clearly over the hill, not that he was particularly high up it in the first place, after all he only won the previous 79 because he had a turbo bolted on under the fairing and uncle carmelo was putting water in everyone elses petrol tanks.......oh wait

Yes there is no way Rossi would have beaten a fit Lorenzo at Assen today.

cracking race

Seriously brave ride from Jorge "this is sparta" lorenzo today - total respect to the boy well earned points and kept the pedrosa in his sights for the championship. Good to see the old boy on the top step again (please don't get over excited fanboys this doesn't mean he's suddenly going to win the championship). Great to see something approaching an exciting race between the yamahas and hondas. Awesome job from Cal even if he did get a shit start. Deserved 2nd but thats racing no place for shoulda coulda woulda.

well you would expect that since hes clearly on the best bike. The fella that broke his collarbone gets 5th, with a satellite bike able to take podiums, and could possibly have challenged for victory if he had a better start. WEll done to Pedro for atleast staying in front of Jorge.
