I've cracked my collarbone, it was painful, bad painful. For lorenzo to break his, go thru surgery having a plate and screws to piece it together, then race and finish 5th, that's just ridiculous. If i were one of the guys who finished behind him, i'd be considering retiring. I'm happy for rossi, but lorenzo racing and finishing that high makes rossi's win seem rather insignificant.

Yeah rossi needed that win. He should have a couple of races before lorenzo is 100%, so maybe he can take advantage of it for another win at some of the tracks he enjoys and has had success.

As much as i like rossi, i doubt he's ever going to beat a healthy lorenzo again. Then, maybe all he needed was the confidence from a win and that may boost his competitiveness. I'm just afraid rossi is getting a little old to lay it out enough to hang with those guys week in and out.

I think he might have what it takes. Seems like he needed the time to get reacquainted with the Yam. He has the passion and to be capable of winning after all these years is amazing to say the least.

The confidence he gained today might do him wonders.
