helluva race. no doubt this will be a real dogfight between yamaha and honda, with the fans being the benificiaries.



helluva risk by yamaha. if they hire the best rider in the world and he doesn't win the championship it will look like the yamaha is second rate. on the other hand, if he wins, it will look like he elevated a second-rate bike on sheer talent. hard to figure what they were thinking in hiring rossi.

He had one!

when max was with honda he complained his honda was not as good as rossi's honda.

when he was with yamaha he complained the yam is not as good as the honda.

on sunday he complained the bike was not set up properly for one key section of the track.

it would be refreshing to hear him for once tell the truth: he is second fastest to "the doctor."

after watching rossi for several seasons now i think i know the reason for his success. he is The Master at riding at 95 percent of his maximum, conserving his energy, tires, and engine until the very end, when it counts. then he kicks in the afterburners, at which point no one can match his pace. it's crazy that his max is so much higher than everyone else's, and that his cruising pace is right at everyone else's max speed.

looks like a tough season for honda. "the doctor" is in. drop 'em & cough!
