The corkscrew was well swept this year, exposing the underlying asphalt for all to see. However, I don't believe MM planed to pass Rossi here.
He just practiced the move and added it to his bag of tricks. Rossi had to leave the door open. I'm surprised that he did.

There's just more asphalt there than there used to be, it's never swept away. And you DO NOT want to ride on that asphalt, it is the least bit smooth.

A couple of comments I recall hearing over the weekend:

More asphalt had been added to that part of the corkscrew "runoff" than when Rossi went thru on someone on another bike (was a while ago, can't remember the other rider).

Mark commenting that he had riden that line by mistake in practice and that it was surprisingly fast (sounded disingenous in retrospect).

The amount of dirt he did ride thru to make that stick was impressive tho, hell, I get twitchy when I see three grains of sand on the road!

Yep. I could understand Joey Dunlop. But Guy Martin, maybe half of what he says is intelligible to me.

Cool video of Rossi's place.

Haha, you yanks expect us all to speak like Hugh Grant! I once sat next to an American woman on a transatlantic flight. I chatted to her during the flight and she complemented me on my excellent english and asked me where I was from to which I replied England!

It's off topic for this thread, but I grew up in the southeastern U.S., small town Georgia. Most of the people there speak something that vaguely sounds like the English language, and would likely be as mysterious to someone from your part of the world as Guy Martin is to us!

That would be the interesting part... just how much does the "duc suck"?

I'd like to see another alien (one a little closer to his prime) give the ducati a go just to get an idea of how those different riding styles work (or don't) with the ducati.

Rossi and Hayden weren't enough for you?
