personally i think shakey deserves the title, specially after loosing out last year, his points tally would of won the championship so the showdown worked against him. lets see if it can work for him this year

You can say the youth has the future,but what is ben spies doing in motogp?
Sure, he has some technical problems but he isn't riding well also this year.

Maybe haga has lost it,or he has a difficult time the last years.
I think it's mentally,when he can overcome that state,he can be back at the top.

I hope he will have another chanca next year,and will perform good,the last 3 weekend's of this year

I hear Shaun Muir has offered both Hill and Haga another year with Swan Yamaha in 2013, so it all depends on whether or not Nori wants to ride or not. God I hope he does, would love to have just one more season of the Samurai of Slide! You never know he could come to life next season when he doesn't have to learn new tracks and a new bike. I'll never stop believing in Nitro!

I hope you are right tucker,I think Nori has had some bad luck this year,had it not been for injury he would be in shootout. Been a huge Nori fan since 1998 and dont think he is ready to stop raceing yet. Go Nori

ARGH!What is this obsession with Haga?
Yes he was very, very good but now he's in gentle decline and should really think about retiring, or else follow in Chris Walker's footsteps.

Can only respect Chris as he's still quick even on a privateer bike but understands the young talent has to come through. You wouldn't expect him to get the Swan Yamaha seat so why do we think the same for Nori?

Its unfair to comment on nori on this thread. Yes he has had a up and down season, with no real excuse. But the bloke at Donnington rode with a broken collarbone and shoulder and in race two was putting 110% effort in until he snapped his shoulder again breaking on the back stright. That's Japanese balls for you.
