    when he started to get beaten that when he started to moan and never stopped till he left the GP..
    he even accuse those that were right behind him of copying his lines.
    thats why I like Rossi never moans about any body,bike yes but he just gets on with it.

Rossi was also in his younger days and indeed continues to be, despite his age. Marquez has brought a completely new way of riding a GP bike, to the paddock. Everyone else is struggling to catch up, albeit they are having some success. Lorenzo is also special. He has had a bad season, just like others of the same ability have had from time to time. Pedrosa also is another very special rider, albeit he has had a horrendous run of bad luck, for which I would hold his manager Alberto Puig largely responsible.

    All of these men have skills that us mere mortals could not even dream of. Just try doing a track day and you will understand better what I mean.

    Valentino won the first race in Qatar this year. COTA is today. Rossi lines up in 6th. Ducati is back in a big way with their new GP15 bike and should garner more than a few podiums this year. Dani sits out the next 2 races after more arm pump surgery. Jorge fixed his helmet. Watch out. Marc Marquez is superbly talented and has matured. Certainly favored for another championship season. He set the record for the fastest ever lap at COTA, jumping on his second bike in the closing minutes of Q2 yesterday. Should be a fantastic season with a good half dozen bikes contending every race.
