Rossi, has always been a no holds barred ruthless racer , Max Biaggi, Sete Gibernau,Casey Stoner,Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez have all felt the aggressive bite of a straight up dogfight with Rossi. In my years of watching GP riders, few riders have shown such determination/bravado and skill..Nothing beats the old style, before traction control overload when they slid the bike everywhere and the "rider" controlled the machine , that's when Nicky proved awesome as well. IMO the new generation of riders don't have the same level of talent for riding on the ragged edge, Rossi has nothing to prove. He's the 2nd best ever GP rider as far as statistics go depending on how you interpret them there's a case for number one in many eyes. People always compare the championship winning Ducati of Stoners to all the others, but reality is Stoners Ducati that year had a huge power advantage over all bikes, with his ability he exploited that and walked away with a championship. Best bike that year, no doubt with a guy who rode it like it was bendable.
From all I've watched over the years, all who have challenged Rossi straight up, have fallen at some point or another, now that he's going to be practiclly 40 years old soon is just remarkable and a irrefutable testenant to his incredible ability.
As far as I'm concerned only Marc Marquez is even close or equal to Rossi's natural ability. As it stands he has a very good chance of surpassing Rossi's 9 championships, As Marc proved in Moto2 and MOTO GP just like Rossi has so many times it's the rider who's capable of awesome spectacles of riding skills.
All other riders Lorenzo, Stoner, etc, play 2nd fiddle to these two riders , as far as pure aggression and control of a machine, truthfully what Marquez does on a bike all have been in awe of, simply astounding.
