Default Re: Results 500cc Australian GP

Colin's remarks:



"If Biaggi were to show some sort of generosity in defeat, you could almost feel sorry for him...During the post-race interviews, there were no words of congratulations from Biaggi, and he even managed to describe the race from his perspective without mentioning Rossi by name. Winners are by nature bad losers, but even the greatest of winners, Mick Doohan, would have had some words of felicitation".



Hits a home run. Very well and true. Mouth..err... Mad...er... Max Biaggi has ALWAYS been a sore loser and and @SS. Many in the paddock (including in Yamaha) surly agree.

From Dorna's website:

"The 22 year old Italian became only second rider of all time, alongside the legendary Phil Read, to take the 125, 250 and 500 crowns..."

Default PI does it again.

Once again PI treats us to an outstanding race. That's only to be expected though. It's very rare for a dry race of any kind at PI not to be truly spectacular. The PI track is one-of-a-kind in that it causes races to be close-knit, exciting events, that you wont find in todays world of sanitised "race" tracks. What makes us Australians even luckier is that we can regularly get onto the PI track and experience it's exciting qualities for ourselves. I'd highly recommend anyone from anywhere if they ever get the chance, to come to Australia, russle up a sportsbike and sample what must be one of the worlds truly great tracks.



Congratulations to Rossi on achieving what we all knew he would the very first time we saw him play with a GP field on a 125.



Congratulations to the entire field for a tight, exciting race.



And as for Haga, he finally rides the 500 as we knew he could, just as he's jumped back out of the series. What a waste.

What Rossi has accomplished is incredible, and it appears he may rewrite the records books, if luck stays with him and he stays healthy. As for Biaggi being a sore loser, I will list a few more sore losers for you. As memory serves: Kenny Roberts, Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson, John Kocinski, and Wayne Gardner are a few that come to mind. I recall post race comments from each of these men that were far more sour and far more direct than anything I have seen from Max Biaggi.

You mean, aside from the little Biaggi-Rossi fistfight in the stairway to the podium?
