    Prediction time. What will be the biggest surprise next year?

    This year it had to be Rossi not winning, but what could happen next
    year. It doesn't have to be the championship winner. Ilmor winning a
    race be sufficiently surprising to me.

    No surprise, but world order will be returned
    Hayden *didnt* win the Championship, Yamaha and its failures lost it
    for Rossi.Still, unless Rossi had a mechanical issue in the last race
    he should not have gone down like that.

    And what about the 2 Yamahas in front of Rossi, why didnt they pull
    over and let Rossi pass and make up the few points he needed to win?It
    tells me Yamaha are total unorganised

    Yamaha dont deserve to have Rossi, its only him that wins on it and he
    should leave and send them back to the winless position again as

    Stoner won't crash, though he might get taken out.

    Biaggi will finish top five in WSBK via consistency.

    Rossi won't win the title...again.

  4. Excuse me. Are you by any chance Rossi's publicist?
    john cuthbertson, Nov 4, 2006
  5. Yeah, don't bother even responding to this nimrod.

    Besaides Rossi's publicist probably quotes Rossi which would contain
    things like:

    All I can say now is a big 'congratulations' to Nicky because
    he is a great guy, a great rider and he is the World Champion
    because he has been the best this year.

    Julian Bond suggests:
    I would argue the opposite over the course of the season.
    The factory teams will have a big advantage in that their
    development cycle will be much quicker than the satellite
    teams. Sure they'll start with the same thing at the first
    test but then the factory guys will slowly move ahead.

    Maybe quickly.

    Go fast. Take chances.

    Julian Bond reminds:
    Yep, I wasn't disagreeing, just extending.

    It'll be interesting to see how the Pedrosa/Puig team
    develops the bike versus the Hayden/Benson team.

    Go fast. Take chances.

    Ducati had lots of contact with lots of riders, hell will freeze before
    Hayden rides for them.Get in your head he is a ok rider nothing more,
    next year you will see what Pedrosa does to him [not punt him off
    though!] he had his day in the sun, its over for him, very very lucky

    How we have short memories look at what Rossi did to him as a team

    Once agin i give you the FACTS Yamaha lost Rossi the Championship,
    Hayden did not beat Rossi fair and square [other than the last race]
    Get Hayden as honest as he is he will most likely confirm it

    No need, only a fool would say the Hayden won it fear and square, he
    won the Championship [just] by the misfortune of Yamaha.
    If Hayden went out and beat Rossi fair and square race after race i
    would respect him, till them he is nothing more but a opportunist

    Less your blind its obvious

    He did win it fair and square, though it's mighty amusing watching the rossi
    groupies throw a hissy fit
    No, he won because he got the most points
    LOL. So, beaing your opponent is "opportunist".

    Rossi had the title in his grasp, and *choked*. priceless

    So, Rossi lost his championship to an "ok rider, nothing more". So much for
    Rossi being the "greatest of all time".
    Hayden's rookie year. Now our memories have Hayden beating Rossi in 2006.
    No, Rossi choked while leading on points
    Yes he did, he got more points and didn't choke under pressure

    Tex Guest

    Yes he did. He's the world champion
    Rossi choked. How exactly is yamaha to blame for him ending up in the
    They deserve someone who doesn't choke and loses his title
