Neatly summed.

I just read somewhere (Krop's site?) about how many Italians consider those from Rossi's region to be "country bumpkins". Kentucky Kid anyone? :D

IF that is the case, maybe because Rossi is steadily wiping out Ago's records and that is a race they are still running?

Masterful display of racecraft by Rossi. Marquez defensive in the post-race interview. The crowd would have lynched him if Rossi crashed out there.
