just goes to show that he truly is a monkey.. an incredibly talented one!

in all seriosness tho, the donington save was one of the most impressive feats of rider ability I have ever seen, but not the best piece of racecraft since he was WAY in front, made me think "look man, why bother, you're flogging a dead horse, just ease up some"

which he promptly did.

The first set of pictures are not at Donington Park. It was the grand prix in Jerez, Spain on Rossi's first season with Yamaha.

BTW Rossi struggled in that wet race in Jerez, Spain. I think he missed the podium. I think he ended up 4th if I remember it correctly.
