Rossi put on a clinic. Sliding the bike WAAAY sideways in the turns. Even with him just riding around out in front he put on a stunt show sliding that Honda like it was a dirt tracker making it a pleasure to watch.



Now bring them to Barber!

Not a great fan of Rossi as a person, but, boy, the guy can ride. You get a feeling that any company that signs him gets the equivalent of an extra 20HP or so. I mean, how different can his bike be from those of Gibernau, Biaggi, etc.? And yet, when Rossi pushes a bit, he is on another planet. At the previous GP he gave ONE SECOND to Biagi in 3/4 of a lap after he passed him. In GP terms that's a spanking. As an Italian I dream of a Ducati/Rossi team (or in a couple of years, Aprilia/Rossi). I think Rossi would find the way of making the most out of the Ducati power.

The last lap at Rio, Rossi was just showing off. He could have been standing up, or doing wheelies the whole lap and he would have won anyway. Amazing.

Stop me if everybody already knows this, but there's some very cool articles by GP commentator and former motojournalist Dennis Noyes over at speedtv.com. re: Rossi and his worth to Honda or maybe Ducati...

This is getting almost as boring as WSB. I hope another manufacturer can step up and mount a serious challenge next year. Ducati may be our only hope.
