First Blood To Rossi

That was some race yday.

Got to say that even though Biaggi's a bit of a twat, he rode a blinding race and could feel slightly aggrieved not to bring home the spoils.... Rossi was very fortunate to have Biaggi on his outside when he dived for the lead thereby baulking him and pushing him wide as well.

Rossi.. what to say ? Unbelieveable ... I hope the rest of the guys can up the ante to match these two out front as it looks as if they're in a class of their own.

That's strategy, not luck. Agreed though, great race!

Oh yeah that's the stuff...

Wasn't that something BC!!! I was on the edge of the couch the whole way....

Agree that the push wide was just about the only thing he had to slow and stay in front of Biaggi (deliberate I say), but how much more poke did the Honda have!!!, it just smoked on by through that back kink......

I don't like Rossi's chances when they get to a real track unless those Yammy boys find him a few more nags

Bayliss???? What can I say, pitiful start for the big Duke wasnt it, come to think of it he's riding just like the newest member of the ducati owners club

and don't even bother with the pit tootsies from the S.A round - they look like they should he hearding cattle not holding an umbrella!!!!

See for yourself - a real ugly stick massacre

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

I'm a Rossi fan, but they are in trouble. Welcom was not a horsepower track and was not letting the Hondas use their top speed, which they definitely have on the Yami at this point. We'll see.

Mmmmmm, mmmmm sounds finger licking good
So how's your mardarin going?

I think Rossi just gave Yamaha a reason to find a little more power.... don't worry about that.

That's not all

The 125 and 250 were cracking races down to the flag as well. If the MotoGP had been a walkover for someone we'd be talking about those.

Tug, why you eating gizzards? Time to switch fom Scottish fare to some tasty Chinese food.
