I've never seen Adriano angry! Saturday's interview was very, very interesting, telling the commentators and writers to shut up Justin Mc said that he wants a cut of Adriano's million when he won it if he was going to be responsible for helping him win it. It was actually kind of weird seeing Adriano anything but positive. I predict that he will ride the rest of the season like the champ that he is. He may not get another world title, but I bet this riding slump is over in nothing flat.

I dont know, hes trying but hes just not making the whistle...ill give him credit hes giving it his all now instead of bailing, i guess we'll see next weekend. But believe me im rooting for him to ride, i hate all this talk about him being too old.
I've seen Adriano get mad before, just not verbally so. Usually him getting mad is screaming and maybe punching the chute gate. Anyway, I agree with Reride; I'd lay odds the slump will be done with in a few weeks, if not the next event and he'll be riding back to form. I don't particularly like the "too old" comments either; if you're still good at what you do and you still enjoy doing it, who cares how old you are.
He's not too old. He's distracted, for sure, but that doesn't have anything to do with his age. He's in shape. It's not his body that is the issue - he's had this happen before and went and won a world championship in 2006
