I had the same thought. He's pushing 40 so hard that maybe it's pushing back! I can imagine that he'd miss competing so much that retirement scares him. But I do think it's time. The young guns are just too good. Sure he has good runs but overall his time is passed.

Stoner may have gone too early but he had the wife, the kid and enough money. Rossi has enough money but unless Ucci is the wifey then Rossi has to find something else to fill his days. I'm certain that any manufacturer would kill to have him as their testing/development pilot.

Heck guys like Rainey are still major players even from a wheelchair. Schwantzy is still in the game, even Biaggi is a player. Rossi has to reconcile with his competitive needs and his ego. Comes a time for us all.
