I love when people that know nothing about motorcycles try to talk/write about them. It sounds so DUMB. that is really the only way to put: dumb. They repeat like 7 times that Rossi crashed. Anyone that cares was watching the race and doesn't need a ****ing newspaper article about it, and anyone intelligent enough to read, can grasp that Rossi crashed, after announcing it the first time.

Hayden is new world MotoGP champion after Rossi loses control of bike

a race that was radically changed by Rossi's fall.

Nicky Hayden won his first world championship Sunday after Valentino Rossi lost control of his bike at the Valencia GP.

Rossi, the pre-race standings leader, fell on a bend in lap five

The seven-time champion appeared to lose grip of his Yamaha bike on a bend and skidded sideways off the track. Rossi was able to recover from the fall and eventually finished 13th.

While trying to make up time, Rossi lost tire grip on lap five


Yeah we ****ing get it. How about talking about the fact that Nicky won the championship because he was the most consistant rider all year?

I'm so sick of hearing "well Rossi had a bunch of DNF's and that's the only reason Nicky won"

Okay so what about the other 20 guys that race GP?

I couldn't agree with you more. That article was poorly written from a motorcyclist's point of view, or even a racing fan in general.

This is probably a good reason why none of the other news papers wanted to take a shoot at writting an article about Nicky's W/C? sometimes I think it is all about "If you have nothing good to say... don't say it!" saying

Sad
