Turdly falls off, and Jorge wins a gimme, you gotta love it...
I agree. It was very clear in the previous race, that he was willing to push that bike to the very ragged edge, to try to win. He was riding the wheels off the bike today, when he fell. You have to respect his drive and willingness to push the envelope. So....yes, I feel a growing respect for the little Bot. I still get a kick out of stinky Puig crapping himself in pitlane though....I've developed a begrudging respect for Pedrosa. Last year he rode hurt for a good portion of the season and this year he seems to be the only one able to take it to Lorenzo. Despite crashing heavily many times throughout his career he doesn't just ride around and collect points, but rather is willing to push over the edge in order to win.
And according to Greg White, his race face is worth at least a few tenths per lap.
I have to agree. I'm no fan of Edwards nor was I of Hopkins when he was in the series. For whatever reason I always liked Vermuelen and Biaggi while they were in MotoGP.Most people I know do not bring nationality into their likes and dislikes. Most people I know like riders based on Heart and skill.
maybe Jorge will fall off...
Rossi knows this could indeed happen . Then the Championship is wide open once again . Problem is he got injured at the worst time , missing four races . Right now the one factor which makes a Jorge injury a real possibility is his own ambition to win EVERY race ; compared to just cruising for points . But the M1 is such a sweet handling bike that a serious toss doesn't seem in the cards .
