Rossi's latest weapon

Maybe Rossi is trying a new tactic with psyching his opponents out.
This is the BACK of Rossis new helmet.



First Sepang results show he's in 2nd place behind Marquez, so maybe it's working...

Despite Lorenzo's attempts, he's nowhere near as entertaining as Rossi.
And Pedrosa is downright depressing.

LOL -agree with your comment on Pedrosa - he's gotta be one of the most boring guys in Motogp and just once I would love for him to acknowledge the tv viewers with a wave or a smile. The others all wave or at least give a thumbs up.....Hey Dani -maybe a better personality will get you closer to a championship.....NOT ! !

Once Rossi leaves MotoGP there is going to a gigantic personality deficit to fill. Regardless of your feelings about Rossi, you can't help but like the guy. I for one hope he is back to challenge for the championship.

Seems to working, at least so far.
Just behind Marquez in today's Sepang tests.

Pedrosa was the only top class rider we saw at Motegi who wouldn't stop for pics of autographs. Just a moody git. At dinner that night in the Hotel's restaurant - only 1 guy sat with him. Not that popular a guy. He's already a has been and knows it.

Rossi's got class.
I've been a fan a long time. I don't think he's hungry enough to be a serious title challenger this year, but we'll see I guess.

As for other personalities on the GP circuit, Edwards & Crutchlow spring to mind...
Lorenzo, although not really an entertainer gained a lot of respect last year for fighting the way he did with a broken collar bone and still coming 5th in that race and 2nd in the championship as a result. Pedrosa wasn't nearly as determined...

That helmet is awesome!!!

I totally agree. I love Rossi's personality with the fans. He makes it fun to watch.
Loren'tho is still better than Pedrosa. His astronaut outfit where he planned his flag and jumped in the water was hilarious.

Riding is what keeps you on your toes...
