    ive put the download through jotti's and scanned the file with adaware and spyweeper, so im as sure as i can be that its safe, please watch it, its a small download. its the reason why i picked motogp as my fav. sport to watch. it shows Australian Gary Mccoy, the most beautiful racer to watch, going sideways through a couple of corners, with his back tyre spinnig up through the whole corner on a GP bike. GP bikes have a higher top speed then a formula 1 car, and im sure they have a higher power to weight ratio. and as the tyers are super sticky and could grip at any moment, it really shows why hes in a class of one.

    im glad you like it. i can watch it about 20/30 times in a row :D . if anyone reads this and dosent know Gary Mccoy, thats how he really races a bike, hes not just showing off, other racers dont like being behind him. firstly, because of all the smoke, and secondly; because he rides like that, his speed through corners are different at different times to the others so they have to take the cornor slower then they normally would.

    another thing which might seem odd is that he uses softer tyre compounds to other racers because his tyres run cooler then the other racers, i think because his tyres arent gripping so it puts less pressure on tham

    thats a great pic, Buck. that's Rossi's bike. i think that hes not just the greatest living sportsman, but in the top 5 of all-time, he won the world title again this year on a bike that last year, when he was in a different team, had one podium finish, and that was in the wet, when the power of a bike doesnt really matter. so this year Rossi won his 7th world title on a bike that was about 15mph slower than the other top bikes.

    there was a race 1 or 2 years ago when Rossi went off the track and was passed by about 6/7 racers. those racers ahead of him were riding flat-out, but none of them was able to catch or pass the one in front of him. after afew laps Rossi was back up to the last guy of the 7 and one corner after another he passed them one-by-one easily, so after 2 laps he'd gone through the lot of them, but Capirossi, who was in first place and went on to win. probably not interesting for you, but to me its just another reason to prove that Rossi is the best of all-time :)
