Watched this live and it was nuts. Started with being an F1 fan but now enjoy motogp more. The competition is definitely tighter.

Wish he either stayed with Honda or Yamaha. Ducati just...........

Although I do miss seeing him on the podium, Rossi is one of those who enjoys the challenges. Being on a Honda is just too easy. He just needs to finds his way on the Desmo GP, work out the kinks, and somehow come back from this bad streak.

I watched that with the same thrill as the first time I saw it.

He had to pull in his knee to pass Lorenzo at the end of the strait.

On the program where I originally watched this they had a super slow motion close up and Rossi lost the front in that final corner, but kept it going. You can see it a bit from the overhead shot at 7:12.

Rossi was the greatest. His time seems to be over.

i was shouting at the top of my lungs at the tv screen while watching that race... it was so god damn epic.
edit: i got the full season video pass from motogp.com this year and i just watched this race again last night. palms were sweaty even though i knew the outcome lol.

here's another one from the guy who made the rossi/lorenzo video. i really like wsbk and moto2/3 because the races are more exciting to watch and it often comes down to the final few laps to decide a winner.
