The Doctor falls off down under
VALENTINO Rossi crashed out of the Australian MotoGP at Phillip Island.
The 9-time World Champion lost the front after overtaking Suzuki's Alvaro Bautista for fifth place on lap 14 of 27.
Rossi qualified 13th on the grid, however he started from 11th after Lorenzo and Spies both withdrew from the race.
Rossi said of the crash: "Unfortunately, I lost the front when I passed Alvaro, and I'm really disappointed because I didn't expect it. Evidently, despite all our hard work, we still haven't solved this problem."
This is Rossi's third in-race crash so far this season.
