Folks will continue to predict podiums for Rossi in 2013.

Eventually, if you predict it every single week, you might be right 3 or 4 times a year

Rossi off the podium, and the first step on the road to announcing his retirement at the end of the year.

The way Rossi's season started, it sure looked like it might play out to be a dream return to the top for him, but since then, not so much so.

You know this must already be on his mind. I'll bet before he joined Yamaha.

I really do hope, that he proves you wrong on this one. Would hate to see him go out like this, but he said it himself at the end of last year, that if he finds himself stuck on 5th or 6th place on the M1, then it is time to quit.

He´s shown more potential than actual results lately. Qualifying better than 3rd row would be the first step in the right direction, and Rossi probably knows that fully well by now.

It'd be nice if race threads were about racing, not guesses pulled out of tuchus'.

Also, my lawn. Get off it.

If it as hot or hotter tomorrow the tires will be a big factor. The bikes and riders who can save the tires the best will likely pick up a position or three between mid point and the finish. Race distance is a long hot ol' way.
