Rossi is a tool, a great rider, but still a tool. I'm glad to see other riders taking podiums and making the races interesting instead of Rossi, Rossi, Rossi. Stoner, Hayden, and whoever is piloting the ZXRR in any given year:)

I'm not so sure that Michelin let a lot of riders and teams down last season. That coupled with new machines probably aided in Rossi's demise in the 07 season. I'd like to see someone new on top in 08, preferably wearing green leathers. Or even Team KR if they could just finish a race.lol

No doubt he is capable but with the influx of fresh young talent each year they shall make it awfully tough on him as well as the entire field.

Interesting read. Obviously alot of people would like to see him do it again, as it will give a big boost to the sport. As we all know is being threatened of being overtaken by world Superbikes in terms of viewing numbers. Rossi probably has a better chance of winning now than in the last couple years. For him personally,it "Win or bust"

There is lots of new talent and lots of electronics that make for closer racing, the days of relying heavily on rider talent for success are dwindling, though it was cool to see Nicky do better when he'd turn his off. Kurtis too!, the 'mericans are old school, back it in baby and get the hell outta the way!
