Can't wait to see how VR performs on the Yamaha next year, I guess he'll need a whole new book of excuses if he aint winning or in the top 5 all year........

I think that Burgess seriously believed Rossi's talent was greater than it is and was hugely dissappointed to find out that he couldn't actually ride around problems like he claimed to be doing at Yamaha.
