Sepang (Malaysia) 500 GP Result

Another dominant race win for Valentino Rossi. 2nd went to Caparossi after a hard battle with McCoy who had led for the early part of the race.

Biaggi took down Roberts in the opening laps when he out-braked himself into a hairpin.

This makes 10 wins this season for Rossifumi, who's betting on 11 ?

Now there's a toss up! We should start a poll :"Who do you dislike more, Roberts or Biaggi?"

What? You didn't honestly think he would finish the race (at least anywhere even close to the front) did you?

It was awesome to see McCoy have another strong race. I think next year he'll really excel and be some serious competetion for little monkey boy Rossi there.

In all honesty Amber I see it as Max's fault. Eurosport showed a heli-cam view & it looked like Max went in too late & too hard.

The comentators also said this so I must be right !

Mind you, it looks like I might have to replace my Roberts replica lid !

Biaggi down again!!!

That's a new record for Biaggi!
5 races, 4 times down!!
I don't mind that he took Roberts out either
It sems he went straight instead of turning, maybe he was thinking of something else like 'I'm never going to beat this guy Rossi' or 'I will never win the 500 championship' and he lost concentration. If he 's thinking like that, he's right!!!
I enjoyed the race

Aris

Biaggi was at fault when he took out Roberts. It kind of looked like Max was trying to take advantage of the inside then had some indecisiveness and realized he was in too hot. I think he was going to take his chances driving off track instead of lowsiding but didn't have enough room. Roberts really squared off the corner and took a weird line. I think they both chalked it up to shit happens. They walked off the track together without getting into a slap fight.

There are girls who like to watch motorcycle races? wow ...I am glad to find one here... The only one I know of
and whats more I also don't like Mladin much ...I don't care for Kenny, ...Biaggi ? he is a good rider but .... and too bad I missed that Malaysian GP ... I d love to see how Rossi won but what I would love to see even more is to see dinkwad Kurtis go down (what's dinkwad anyway ? ) I don't think I can ever like this guy after seeing how he tried to get ahead of John Hopkins by bumping him to the side and a few other moments from his racing attitude.

I don't want to bad mouth Kurtis... it could cause Pete's bike to lose value.
