We had hundreds of ‘virtual quotes’ entered into our Rossi shirt competition, thanks guys! Unfortunately we couldn’t publish them all but here are the winners and runners up, as well as a few ‘highly commended.’ Congrats!

In first place, and the WINNER of an ACTUAL team shirt signed by Valentino Rossi and courtesy of the Fiat Yamaha Team, it’s…

@the_mcevoy LORENZO: “I am trying hard to remember it isn’t a real race. I broke three laptops in practice by sticking a flag through the screens!”

Well done, we love it! The two RUNNERS-UP will get their hands on a beautiful copy of Motocourse, courtesy of the lovely oil people at Fuchs-Silkolene ( Here they are…

@dunc_b – HAYDEN: “The Desmosekeyboard has a pretty savage return key. I keep sending premature tweets out of the corners.”

@TraceyMcGarvey – ROSSI: “I have terrible pre-race twitters, I hope there is no chattering between commas or running wide between parentheses.”

And here are a few more we thought worth sharing with you. Well done to all!

@katelynelders – LORENZO: “My bike is in safe mode to ensure I make it to the end without crashing.”

@racephoto – STONER: “Our wi-fi signal is inconsistent; we filed a protest against Simoncelli’s hair being used an interference device”

@dodgyempire – JB to VR: “Stop trying to email, TWITTER me!”

@ValentinoMossy – STONER: “I think we are going to suffer a bit with the electronics this weekend, the anti-spam control won’t let me take full control.”

@Stuhing – SUZUKI: “After poor Friday lap times, we’ve upgraded the package to 16gb of ram…air induction.”

@ChrisJonnum – BURGESS: “TwitGP is okay, but I miss the days before electronics took over racing.”

@madmark99 – ALEX BRIGGS TO VR: “Have you tried switching it off and on again?”

@twosheds46 – ROSSI: “For this weekend we need to sort out the electrics for sure. Popups are still a problem at the start.”
