I think Rossi raced very cautiously. His unfamiliarity with the track, and the concerns he raised about the track's safety played into his race strategy. I'm not so sure that the corner has been turned or that Valentino will be consistently beatable. Actually I highly doubt it. Hopefully for Nicky and Colin, they have turned the corner, but I don't see them challenging Valentino for the MotoGP title anytime soon.

The main positive points about the Buell are it's pose value and aesthetics.

Not a picture , not a word about the "Czycz" that took 2 laps before the BIG one. The "Britten-like" herculean effort went totally unnoticed. Shame on somebody. DID YOU SEE IT???

OK maybe my respect and admiration for Nicky and Colin are clouding things. But Rossi has had the advantage of growing up at all those motogp tracks. Time will tell if things have changed I think so. but we will see huh.

I was wondering about that. As there is nothing on the Czycz website I thought maybe it did'nt happen.

James Parker writing in Motorcyclist pretty much dismantled the bike's inovations as pointless but I don't think he rode it.

It was awesome! Great pics Fonz, big surprise. The sounds is why you have to BE there. They all sounded different, they all sounded great. I want a streetbike with the KTM's howl.

The other advantage of taking the shuttle instead of scooting around on the dusty back roads of LSR is the survival of your drivechain. I've camped out at past USGP and Monterey Historics events, and my chain always ended up trashed after the trips, no matter how much lube I tried applying at the racetrack, after getting to pavement...



That fine red dust is just murder!
