If Rossi is within striking distance to Lorenzo, 2013 is gonna be epic. Oh, but there's the other "if", that they both stay healthy. 2010 was already shaping up an epic season, then Rossi broke the leg.
The most memorable races from the 800 era, for some reason Rossi is almost always there in the fight. Dunno why "the others" don't create the same level of entertainment. This year Lorenzo&Pedrosa did produce a few good duels, though.
