Default If I were Rossi's agent....

Rossi is now saying he wants to stay in MotoGP for 12 years (not that I beleive that). If so he should switch to Ducati next year, with Melandri as his partner. Is that a concept?



Ducati can't afford him unless he does it for the challenge and probable beatification by the Pope.



The fun part would be hearing Max Biaggis excuses every week or so. Also, someone else might just get to win once in a while.

Default How about those tires!

Looks like Michelin have solved all the problems as far as Rossi's style of riding is concerned. I watched the race through the on board camera and noticed that he seemed to use a much looser line than the guys in front and behind him. It seemed to spread the wear over a wider stripe on each side.



After setting fastest lap on the last lap, he burned a 360 degree donut and took another lap; the rear tire STILL looked good. Yet the other riders had tire trouble at the end.



The last few races there's been no doubt about the winner after the 10th lap.

Face it folks. King Kenny is dethroned, fast freddie ain't so fast anymore. Not taken anything away from the moto gods of the past, but we are looking at the true embodyment of a motorcycle racing god.

Rossi has nothing to prove any more, he can just pick the next challenge he want. Ducati, WCM, KTM/Roberts?????

I'd wager that he will either get a kings ransom from Yamaha for one more season, or get a kings ransom from Ducati. Then he can be the first mult championship rider on three manufacturers.

The only thing that stands in his way is boredom.

The only thing stopping the competition is Rossi.



Oh, and prop's to Shinya Nakano, if he can get some A grade michelin tire on that Kaw, he might stay with the front runners. Nicky and Edwards look to be raising their games up as well.

Biaggi will be lucky to get a Honda ride next year.
