Estoril 2006: Pedrosa skittles Nicky Hayden, putting a big dent in his title hopes. Rossi, Elias and KRJR battle it out, with KRJR thinking the race end was a lap earlier than it was. Elias beats Rossi at the stripe by .002 seconds, depriving him of 5 points, the exact number that he eventually loses the championship by.

Sachsenring 2006: Valentino Rossi at his finest. Starting in 10th position, the Doctor was in the lead by mid-race. The lead pack of Rossi, Melandri, Hayden and Pedrosa had a close ding-dong battle in the German countryside the remainder of the race. How close was it? 4th place Pedrosa finished 3/10 of a second behind race winner Rossi.

Laguna Seca 2008: Sometimes it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's more the size of the fight in the dog. After dominating practice and qualifying, Ducati mounted Casey Stoner looked to run away with the race. Too bad an obstacle named Valentino Rossi would stand in his way. Every time Stoner would get by Rossi, Rossi would counter; including probably the most breathtaking pass in MotoGP history, a miracle move through the dirt in the Corkscrew. Frustration oozing from every pore, Stoner eventually ran off track and toppled over like a 2-year-old on a tricycle, ending the battle.

Barcelona 2009: Yamaha "teammates" Rossi and Lorenzo beat on each other the entire race. Lorenzo takes the lead going into the final lap. After a couple of brief passes by Rossi for the lead that are rebuffed by Lorenzo, The Doctor teaches the kid that it ain't over 'til its over with an "impossible" pass in the final corner to take the win.
Rossi, Rossi, Rossi, Rossi.
Yeah, He was pretty good, wasn't he?
Faster you fool!
