I think the animosity between Sete and Valentino is a direct result of a few unfortunate incidents this year on both sides, and probably has nothing to do with their personalities. I'll bet they'll kiss and make up before next season.



Biaggi is just a whining b!tch. I doubt that the people on his own team get along with him, much less his competitors.

This is the case allover something that involves some sort of technology.



Could Fangio outbeat Schumacher ?

Coul "Steady" Eddie rip off rossi ? or even Dohan ?



Who nows!?



what I think is in those days rider/driver/pilot count. It could make a difference. Nowadays it still does but the gap is narrowing.

At the same time, young riders are getting used to nicely tuned machines and they just step up.

Just look at their age.



Does anybody thinks that Rossi will keep up for the next 3 years ? With riders like Vermeulen ? Take a look at Pedrosa. He's only 19.



Things are happening much faster now. And that's not only in lap times....



I do think that Rossi is actualy the greatest. However nostalgia of Sheene, Lawson, Dohan, Shwantz, Roberts and the kind stil rules....



I guess it's the age.

To cool. Just read a little bit about Jordan being the newest team owner in AMA road racing. That is one I never would have called. He seems into it.



Did you see Montez Stewart's bike? It's Carolina blue and has the Air Jordan logo between the pipes on the back. There is a good interview on the AMA website as well:

He talks about leaning to do wheelies and crashing his bike(s)...a 998! Oh to be filthy rich and use your Ducati 998 as your practice bike for stunts.

From MOTOGPNEWS.COM:



The euphoria of Rossi's win was apparent throughout the Yamaha team who have finally managed to win a world title since Wayne Rainey managed it, which was somewhere back around the time that the first fish crawled out of the sea. But Yamaha have even more to celebrate than just a victory, they have the satisfaction of thoroughly humiliating their hated enemy Honda - not by building a better bike, but by employing a better rider.



Perhaps the outcome was best analysed by Rossi's chief tea boy, Jerry Burgess. "Yamaha make pianos", quoted the Australian, who has made tea (and the occasional vegemite sandwich) for some of the greatest riders of recent times. "Good pianos, but ****e bikes", Burgess continued, "the M1 is certainly better than it was, but it's still a steaming heap of roo poo. It was mainly all my advice to Rossi that won the day. So in a way I'm actually the champion."

I'd like to see Rossi try winning on the most uncompeditive bike in Moto GP. If he does, my mind will be made up about who is the best of all time...

With Jordan backing a superbike team, does this mean we'll eventually see Nike leathers, helmets, gloves, boots, frame sliders, seats, tires, exhausts, etc.?

Default Re: Rossi like Mladin are the greatest.

I've never said anything about Mladin either. Kook is just engaging in his usual studitity.



My wife's mother is an Australian war bride, now a naturalized US citizen (complete with Utah drawl). I did a 7 day R&R in Sydney while I was in Nam and had a wonderful time... except for getting used to the left side traffic.



In fact Australia is the best ally that the USA ever had. They've stood with us in every major conflict, including Vietnam and the current one. Their army has been as tough as they come giving the vaunted Germans fits. They are inventive and irreverent and I wouldn't have it any other way. My hat is off to Australia.

Default Re: Rossi should grow up...

Kook agrees with you.



That should make your day.

Register to vote for Bush while you're there, okay?



That should raise The Illiterate Idiot's(tm) blood pressure to stroke levels.
