Marquez V Rossi
« on: 29 April, 2015, 12:55:31 PM »

I've watched and rewatched the last Moto GP race.... and I've come to the conclusion Marquez was trying to make Rossi crash... he had no business being where he was... Rossi had the racing line... Marquez was barging... I don't see how the racing committee deemed it a racing incident... Marquez is an awesome rider... but he has a dirty streak and it was there for all the world to see....
Can't wait to see the next encounter.... Is there nothing Rossi can not do....
Perhaps win another world title before he retires......?

Hitting someone with your front tire/wheel is not the best way to knock another down. I've watched a few times and it's pretty hard to place blame. Great action !! Marc has a broken finger suffered a day or two ago. Will make the drama even better.

Marquez made an error of judgement due his young gung ho "I'm a god attitude"
he thought he could bully Rossi and it back fired,
don't think Rossi even realised what was about to happen in the second incident as he was well in front,
blame if that is the correct word was Marquez he should have rolled off a tad and tucked in behind Rossi,

I enjoyed watching that for sure.  Rossi had the position - Marquez took himself out.  Glad to see Rossi get the win.

Me too. But does it not show "others" they should sign up to watch it ?

If you look at 2:20 you see Rossi having a glance over his right shoulder and he either

Marquez is an incredible talent but he is a dirty racer and always has been. I laughed my head off when he fell down, it is usually the reverse situation when he is battling that way. Rossi is just tougher than the other guys and can't be intimidated.

Rossi saw him, and knew what Marquez was gonna do.  Notice that Rossi, at the right time, stood his bike up and straight lined it, just as Marquez was gonna turn.  This gave Rossi the stability from the impact and Marquez went down.....just like Rossi knew he would.   All in a split second.  Great riding from Rossi.
