Kind of an anti-climactic race, I thought. Rossi's victory was never in doubt, although at least Gibernau made him work (a little) for it. Makes you wonder if Valentino would go to a lesser manufacturer like Yamaha just to provide himself with a consistent challenge. Naw ... Ducati maybe, for the high profile potential for an Italian champion on an Italian bike, but any other move just doesn't make sense. The top rider will want to stay on the top bike.
