    Rossi on pole for Assen, Movistar Yamaha’s Rossi silenced the doubters by smashing Casey Stoner’s previous pole record from 2012 by over a second to claim his 61st career pole position. The nine-time World Champion set a 1’32.627, the fastest ever time on a motorbike around the 4.5km track.

    Don't write Lorenzo off he's a fantastic starter and Rossi is'nt, gonna be an interesting race.

    About time might try and go next year would have gone this year but my lad couldn't get time off.
    In a dilemma collect a new bike tomorrow was hoping put some miles on for the running in but can't miss the race so have to be long day in the saddle Sunday. Want in run in and first service before next weekend.

    Marquez is the master of block passing on the brakes, using other rider's bikes as a berm to richochet off. Most other riders lift and let him have the place. Not Rossi ... he's too canny with the rules! :)

    He is still the man :). Looks like his off road training paid off too. I am a huge Rossi fan but I do think that Marquez is a fantastically talented rider too. He needs to be very careful if he wants to still be racing at Rossi's age though.

    It's a shame pedrosa came off in warm up , it would of been more interesting if he had been on full song mixing it up with Lorenzo up at the front. Still a good result for Rossi though.

    PHEW! After hearing Vale on pole had to avoid any posts on here, news etc until I could watch it on ITV4, then we were out and bloody digi box threw a wobbly on series record & didn't record it, finally watched on catch up just now.

    Awesome race The Doctor at his best so nice to see a rider coming to his racing twilight years give such a performance, really did show Lorezo the home.

    Can't wait to see him live at the San Marino GP.

    Oh boy was that the understatement of the year.

    I don't know if I can take a full season at this pace.

    Once again Danny Kent using his head and extending his lead, if he instructed Marquez on use of head Marquez would be leading.

    Sam Lowes seems to doing a very good job on the B grade bike, all others at the front are on Kalex.

    I don't know if you know the area but we've stayed in one of the endless campsites in glorious Riccioni and push-biked into the track, not on a race day. Road access by vehicle looks poor for a race day. I got there one Sunday and it was a track day, you should see what the Italians turn up on and how they ride, a seriously good free day.

    It wasn't as if he gave Rossi much option, it was like Marquez was on a game of skittles.
