Valentino Rossi was amidst his second year running without winning a MotoGP World Championship. This is something Rossi had never experienced (at this point) throughout his entire premier class career in MotoGP. At the 2008 American GP at Laguna Seca, Rossi found himself in a heated battle with defending World Champion Casey Stoner. Rossi knew that Stoner had the edge on race pace and he would have to disrupt his rhythm from the start. This lead to one of the most legendary battles in recent MotoGP History. The Ducati had the edge on the Yamaha in terms of sheer horsepower, but Rossi would not be denied the victory. He frustrated the defending World Champion into making a mistake, eventually going on to win the 2008 title.
