Yeah, bad deal for Danny. I was actually starting to like him. His throttle stuck open, or some shit?

I was surprised Jorge took it to Rossi yesterday ... not much to gain, but everything too lose.

It's a shame Jorge wasn't challenged more this season. Although, he was damn consistent and rode some good races.

Yeah... the ugly side of fly-by-wire throttles...

I agree with you on J.Lo vs. Rossi... but not surprised that Lorenzo's ego manifested itself... simply a matter of time.

Glad to see Rossi hold Lorenzo back and out due him, even in those few mere seconds Lorenzo was able to push ahead :laugh

Hats off to Stoner.

told ya so, maxx ;)
Uninjured Rossi finished ahead of Lorenzo twice and vice versa... and we saw what happened this past weekend (and at Catalunya last year) when it's close between the two of them... even Dani can stick it to your boy, and unfortunately, he can't fight for the championship anymore...

We all know that Whoreghey's sympathy words towards Rossi after the Mugello injury were playing-the-media-bullshit, and he likely feels no different about Pedrosa... A true competitor wants to beat his fiercest opponents when they are at their best... just sayin'.
