Did Rossi kick some ASSen or what?

That was the best race so far this year, like the commentators have said for years, write Rossi off at your own peril. The last 500 GP champion is still out there WINNING, adapting his technique to deal with the latest generation of bikes,tires, electronics and shit hot youngsters, and still getting it done.
Thanks from bradp51, gramps, youngR and 4 others

So much happened in that race!! Battles amongst the racers, AND battling with the elements [a little bit].

One of the best so far for sure. Rossi is able to find speed and pass everyone in so many varied conditions, and often from a rubbish starting place as well. I hope Petrucci gets a win as he really deserves it and was very unlucky not to get it at Assen.

Quality MotoGP race, as mentioned above, not only battling among each other's, but many factors played into this race; tires, setup, weather, experience...etc.

But, to be fair, Marquez also raced impressively... In fact, some on this forum might even say he raced better than Rossi...

But yes, Rossi (when his chasis is set right, is pretty much unstoppable), I don't think even Stoner would stand a chance...

PS- if you want the race let me know

PSS- I just graduated with my PhD last week and not one of you cunts has congratulated me...
