What's Happening In MotoGP?

For those who have not watched the last two races of MotoGP, you have been missing out. I'd like to hear the Euro / Global perspective on the season to this point plus what do you expect in Valencia.

What happened in Sepang is very disappointing.  Valencia could have been a race for the ages.  Maybe the rest of the field will pull over and let Rossi by?  HA!  We can always wish.  BTW, what Rossi did was unacceptable. IMHO

Goes back to the dirt track tactics by the big boys when I was in high school.  A guy I knew led one of the big names into the first turn due to a terrific holeshot and great engine buiding, so the guy dropped inside him and kicked him out of the way breaking his leg.  No apologies, no consequences, nothing but laid up for 8 weeks to heal.  Maybe his fault for being too hot and allowing him to get inside.  Such is the competitive nature, but it shouldn't come down to crashing someone out.  Sad indeed, I was kind of a Rossi fan in years past, but it is apparent he's past his best and won't admit it.  Young guys always rule in this sport, all the way back to Kenny and Freddy.

#93 was deliberately trying to make #46 fall off the pace and stay back from #99 and #26 - you only have to study the Lap Times..

There were at least 5 instances prior to the "offing" of #93 where he caused his bike to contact #46 or take avoiding action..

Earlier in the Season #93 forced #46 off the track completely at the penultimate corner although he straight-lined the chichane and actually managed to win the race in question..

What comes around, goes around... it's called "Racing"

I only wish we'd had coverage like that for the Roberts vs Sheene battle at the British GP in '79 which I (happily) had to witness from the Grandstand at Silverstone...
