Rossi is the best man on two wheels in any form of bike racing at the moment but that was out of order. He should be disqualified.

I'm a big Rossi fan, but, I felt a little bit of guilt as though it was a little out of line.

I dont agree, just a racing incident and I think Rossi was lucky to stay on the track himself.

He did look a bit TOO smug on the podium though, I thought Gibernau was serioulsy thinking about tw*tting him!!!!


I love the bikes, although must admit find the World Superbikes more exciting than Moto GP..... usually go to Brands to see the UK round (will do this year for sure as last time hopefully!) and cant wait to get to Philip Island!!!

I saw Hodgson do the double at Philip Island 2 years ago. Much better than Silverstone last year - No queues to get in or out to speak of, cheaper, you can take your bike in and drive around the outfield and even go and see the cute penguins afterwards. It is my only real regret about choosing Perth over Melbourne.

Is there a racing track at Perth? Do they have the Aussie superbike championships there?

Brands is a much better circuit than Silverstone... cant wait to go this year!!!!!! Think my Dad will be sad about it though as we usually go together (on the back of his Honda Blackbird!)... he's looking forward to flying out for Philip Island though, but it is always raining there!!!

I agree, I thought he pushed his bike to the inside from too far back. It was a desparation move, and not a fair one.

Gibernau left a gap on his inside and Rossi used it.The experience that Gibernau has,he should have been hugging the inside line,leaving nowhere for Rossi to go but to try to go around the outside.In racing terms Rossi did a block pass,took the inside line,forced Gibernau wide and won the race.Gibernau didn't like it but,hey that's racing.If Gibernau doesn't like getting overtaken he could always try and get a drive in Formula Bore!

Yes it was a great race. I thought the 250cc was fantastic, realy close the whole way. And great for Cassy too. I think we are in for some great racing in years to come.

Rossi is a world champion on an inferior bike and its moves like that which will keep him there....Gibernau would have done the same to Rossi given the chance...verdict ..a racing incident...
