All you need to do is watch the Rossi interview where he says he spoke to the doctor. Rossi spoke of Nicky in past tense the rest of the interview. Like Rossi had been told by that doctor that Nicky wasn't going to make it. I suspect we'll hear sometime today that he's past. This makes me so damn mad because Nicky shouldn't have even been there, he should have been in France getting ready for the Gp race where he still belonged. He wasn't finished in Gp he was pushed out because he was American just exactly the way they done Spies. Nicky had not been on top level equipment since the year he won the title. Honda build the following years bike to fit Pedrosa which meant it didn't fit or work for Nicky. From there it was a steady tumble to the bottom of the equipment and finally out! Politics is in every aspect of human life. Seldom are the most deserving people rewarded the most because it's the most connected people that take praise for work they never done and can not do.
