Yeah, we all wish for the all GP championship to be raced in Laguna Seca on sunshiney days.

This will be the 2nd time I read that Ricky Carmichael is the V. Rossi of American Motocross, very dominent indeed.

Moto GP is the king of all motorsports, and rossi and the rest are masters of these machines. Any other four wheeled motorsport would have been red flagged in those conditions but moto GP goes on sun rain hail maybe snow- Who knows, half of the field crashes out, but the show must go on.

i get the feeling that Rossi runs the first 80% of a race at 80%. Then when there's about five laps to go, he wicks it up and checks out. It's like a cat playing with a bunch of mice.



Three races in he mentally destroyed Gibernau for the rest of the season.

This is what makes Rossi the greatest. He chooses his pace and ups it to win at the key point. Only great riders can do this. I also think that if Carmichael and Rossi raced in each others venues Rossi would make Carmichael look like a chump. Rossi is known to be great at all motorsports. He was 2 seconds off of Shumachers F1 times when he tested a Ferrari F1 car.
