He really is not as good as he likes to think anymore.

Well for 40 years he and Rick have rocked the world.

Very good yes I too like Francis Rossi

A new bike.

Still recovering from injury.

Nothing to prove.

Good answer!!

So why did he ride so recklessly then I think Stoner hit the nail on the head when he said to Rossi your ambishion outweighed your talent when he took him out, there was no way he was going to make that move.
As for the shoulder he has been going on about that for about a year now.

Ambition?? from a nine times GP champion.
Talent?? Nine times GP champion

I refer back to bremner - nothing to prove, just a competitive rider.

Stoner should have half Rossi's talent!

How many times was Stoner 125 champion?

How many times was Stoner 250 champion?

Nothing easier than putting the top man down.

However, it carries more weight if you get up alongside him first.

It was still a totally reckless move by someone who can't handle getting beat and is still using a year old injury as an excuse.

If Stoners statement was not true Rossi would have made it past him without falling off.

Rossi went in too hot. Even if Stoner hadn't been there Rossi would still have slid off. But Stoner was there and Rossi took him off with him.

It was a racing incident........ these things happen and although it is quite distressing for the other rider at the time it is not such an unusual occurance. Any move that goes wrong can always be described as reckless but we are talking here about a truly great racer of his time. Rossi is up there with Duke, Hailwood, Ago and Read. None of these people were perfect every time out.
