I'll give you that...he does make a lot of excuses, but he's always reasonably competitive, not like that wank Roberts Jr. who makes excuses and ISN'T :wackit
But that's another thread...
Imagine being in Max's shoes, all that talent, a 4 X World Champ in his own right, always the #1 rider in whichever team he's in, the best parts, the best bikes and STILL can't quite beat Rossi. Trouble is that now he's slipping further and further away from being competitive, it must be eating him up. He's probably got a littel voodoo doll of Rossi that he sticks pins into in his trailer! :1poke
Giberneau is another rider who has been cracked by Rossi, I don't think either him or Max have the mental toughness. Imagine how Sete must have felt when Rossi stated that Giberneau wouldn't win another race while Rossi was on the track...Man those are some pretty bold words, but you know what?
It got to him...Sete hasn't won since...and now the championship is slipping away....AGAIN!!
Rossi is a GOD!
