I think they just dressed up someone in a Rossi suit and sent them out to do a few fast laps to shut Lorenzo up :crackup:
I sure hope it works

Problem is these guys have such a fire inside them to get back on the bike (Hopper and Dani Pedrosa are prime examples) that they return way early and end up crashing more and just can never get healthy, I am afraid Hopper's competitive career may have ended from this type of thinking. And Dani went from being the Championship favorite, when the 800's first came out to just now finally getting halfway healthy and I still think his fitness is adrift. I hope this does not happen to Vale. IMHO he should sit out the rest of the season, the Championship is gone, Lorenzo had his number this year whether he got hurt or not, I believe anyway. I would start fresh next year and see if he can put one more season togher before retiring.

Keep in mind he's spent time in a hyperbaric (sp?) chamber, which means recovery is accelerated.

That said, maybe he should wait a bit more and at leats get his shoulder sorted.

I think doing a few races at the end of the season is good, it'll keep his mind and eye in the game...
Also, fresh info for comparison when he jumps on the Duck... If that does indeed happen.

I think it is as good as done, Rossi to Ducati, Stoner anounced this week that he is going to Repsol Honda, so that opens up the Ducati seat.

Why would he do that when he has done so well with Yamaha?? Is it just to prove that he is the best and can win on anything?? Maybe just a change of scenery?

He would be an Italian on an Italian bike. I think thats the idea.
