Rossi wasn't particularly close at the start of that lap, so I guess Jorge should have gone a bit faster. :deal

Didn't think I'd ever see another Rossi pole, though.

Have to hand it to Hopper--he had a long lay-off before returning this year and his body has taken a beating. I'd say he'll be back in contention next season if he stays in BSB.

Rossi once came from 11th (at Assen) to beat Stoner, but that was 6 or 7 years ago.
