Valentino Rossi ranks Assen win as one of best ever

Valentino Rossi ranked his 80th MotoGP victory in an enthralling Assen race yesterday (Saturday) as one of the best of his career after he rolled back the years to win for the first time since 2010. Winless since the Sepang race in Malaysia 32 months ago, Rossi controlled the 26-lap Dutch TT from the sixth lap to notch an incredible 106th...

Not sure anyone believes Nostros ravings that all ducati's problems were caused by Rossi and JB they appeared to start a while before that(on the introduction of the stoner/presiozi lead design)


Can you give us the results of the Stoner/Presiozi lead design versus the Rossi/Preziosi lead design please bud?

all speculation now

Hugelean to which we will never know the answer, and probably an inappropriate tangent now that the certain truths are Rossi still being a winner  and Stoner being retired, and I was drawn back to this by a reply to Nostradamus. Obviously what both of us have are opinions; mine is that whatever the relativity of the opposition was in 2007, the GP07 still required a radical riding style to be fast over a lap. Valentino whilst much better obviously than all the riders who couldn't alter their riding style would still imo have needed to alter his, which sure maybe he could have done in 2007. Marco Melandri who as has recently been pointed out was no slouch on a Honda 990, to my surprise at the time couldn't ride the non carbon fibre bike, including the GP07 in the post season test, but I guess he couldn't ride Yamahas either.

I have always thought Rossi was in no way responsible for the pig that was the 2011 Ducati, but then I don't think Stoner was really the architect of the 2010 bike, with a Marlboro advertising executive having quite a role in that bike being, like that former New Zealand bowler, neither one thing nor the other. The 2009 bike was fine for Stoner, if no-one else, when he was healthy.

Yes hugelean, the only reason Stoner won in 2007 is because of his superior tyres. The same tyres that EVERY Bridgestone runner had access to. Unlike the overnight specials that Rossi received from Michelin for the previous six years. F@cking fanboys!
