And here he is heading from his motorhome to the pit box.

Since it's off-season, i'll post one more.

This is Nicky and I, taken with my iphone. He commented on my Rossi hat and Spies sweatshirt, but was still a great sport. The bitch is I was wearing a Nicky T-shirt that he had signed and I had bought from his Dad under the sweatshirt but it was too damn cold!

[IMG][/IMG]

I took similar pictures with Spies, Elias, Edwards, and Bautista but when I asked Rossi he told me he didn't speak english and kept walking!

At Indy in 2010, Rossi crashed in one of the practices. When He came out of the garage to hop on the scooter with Uccio, I shouted at him; "VALENTINO, WHAT HAPPENED?" Never missing a beat he said "I crash" and sped off. Turned out I got the best interview...

It would be nice if he was right. I wonder what he bases that statement on?

Yep it would be nice if he's right, but being injured I'm not sure if he's
ridden the Ducati in anger yet.

I agree that hopefully he's right; but I have my doubts. And I wonder what Hayden thinks about that statement? Kind of insulting to his fellow Merrikan. He's probably thinking "Yeah yeah, you'll see".

How crazy would it be if he beat Rossi this year? I don't think that will happen, but it would sure be insane.

We will see about the Ducati's when the talking stops and the racing starts.

(FWIW I'd love to see them kick ass.)

They (Ducati) were all talk and no results in 2011 and 2012. In fact 2011 was always gonna be a learning year for Rossi, and then they´d build him a winner bike for 2012. Or that´s what they said. But nothing much happened. If anything happened, it was the top CRT bikes getting awfully close to the factory Ducatis in some races.

Don´t know, how much credibility they have left right now. I´d like to see Spies up front, though.
