    “It is our fault and we cannot cry, regret, just remember because next week we have another crucial race in Sepang” – Valentino Rossi.


    What a competitor and champion. Regardless of the results of this season, Rossi is a class act all the way. At least toward the tail end of his career.

    +1 on rossi being consummately gracious in defeat...no excuses, just praise for the others. i can't think of a more thrilling race...from start to finish. & thank god for marc marquez. what a spectacular last lap he pulled off.

    He has always been a class act. He's also been racing long enough to know when you give it your best and get beaten you don't try to shift the blame. The next two races will be interesting. Both have so much to lose.

    I felt kinda sorry for the seagull.

    Did you see Iannone's fairing after the race? Just imagine the force that seagull transmitted to punch a hole in the fairing...

    And that double inside pass under Vale and Marquez was insane.

    He hasn't "always been a class act"!! He's gotten better with age in that regard. Biaggi, Giberneau, Stoner, and Lorenzo (in the early years) would all disagree on Rossi's graciousness....as would many of his 125 and 250 opponents. He has always been in a class of his own, and just about the most entertaining rider to watch in the Paddock. It was an AWESOME race.
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.

    Hahaha. Here's the "class act" acting more like an Ass Hat.....

    Kinda reminds me of when he went all prima donna over JL in 2008-2009. I lost some respect for him for a while, then.....

    I keep looking and can find every Moto race from that weekend except the MotoGP race. Anyone have a link to it? This thread has really piqued my interest in watching it. Sounds exciting.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.
