People invariably always have a tendency to 'write him off' John....for their own reasons.

Not Me though...because as you know I'm a BIG fan along with 'countless others'....and will him on as long as I have the privilege of watching him race.
Go Vale

Rossi will always be regarded as one of the greatest of our time.. However, maybe subconsciously hes worried about seriously injuring himself again and prematurely ending his career

He needs to win at least one race this year before the end season to shut his doubters and to prove to himself that hes still a contender..

Going to Ducati appears to have been a mistake and has marred his bike development reputation. Hes now on a championship winning bike and hes certainly got the talent to turn this poor performance around and get back on the podium spot..

Lets hope that we see Rossi fighting for a win again during the second half of the season.

Yes that would be nice John, I hope so as well, because I am struggling with Moto F1 at present - boring boring boring

Whoever would have thought we'd be saying that about the fabulous sport of Moto GP? - Thank heavens for the 'lesser' Moto GP classes

I agree Rob..

It also depends greatly on the track..

Problem nowadays is that the top riders make it look so easy.. If they get a good start and into a rhythm, then the only way to over take is to attempt a risky manoeuvre ..

The likes of Marquez is prepared to risk the lot to win a race, but the other more seasoned riders look at the bigger picture and play the long game..

It would be great to see riders like Scott Redding promoted into Moto GP and stir the field up a bit..

I'm just so used to seeing 'real road racing' week in week out ..and witnessing what Michael Dunlop and co do on public roads in front of your eyes...just 'feet' (sometimes inches!!) from you.....,makes 'everything' else seem very tame. Even the top Moto GP guys are 'gobsmacked'! when they see it first hand.
Much as I'm in awe of the top Moto GP guy's ability...I'd just like to see a bit more 'action'. as without it ..it is in danger of becoming a bit of a 'snoozathon'
And I wanna see Vale 'up front'......,badly!

Likey - I will use this also with the proper credit (of course) given to its author!
