I guess I'm not really surprised. JT has just not gelled with the bike this year whereas Spies has demolished all in his path. It remains to be seen whether he will make the same impact in MotoGP as many have seen their dreams flounder there.

I don't think JT should worry about his own future. Ten Kate have stated that they want him on their bike and he has proven he knows how to ride it. The guy that needs to be worrying now is Kiyonari and I can't help but think that his wild card ride at Croft is an indicator of his future.

First win the bloody WSB title and then worry about MotoGP. But either way, Yamaha's got the future sewn up in terms of hogging most of the top talent. Marco S. on a satellite Honda should do okay, maybe enough to get him Pedrosa's seat when the wee fella goes to Ducati. Pity about Stoner, whether it's a mystery illness, nerves or whatever. He's the only one who could make that Duc fly and a racer with his talent should be out there. Healthy and happy, I'm sure he'd be up there with the other top lads. And you lot fighting over who's the best. Chill. Do a track day sometime and see how tough it is to maintain consistent times as your tires go away and the bike dances around.

I'm sorry but Toseland doesn't belong in MOTOGP. Here's a perspective. The following are the only REGULAR riders since the start of the season who haven't yet scored a podium in 2009.Capriossi 97, Vermulen 84, Toseland 78, Kallio 51, Canepa, 35.
The top two have at least scored MOTOGP podiums in their careers, the bottom two are rookies, and I have no idea what Canepa is doing there in the first place. So after around 30 MOTOGP race starts what does JT have to show for himself?

2 things, well 3 actually. Toseland will be going to Moto2 with the Tech3 team, I'm pretty sure of that. I'm disappointed Cal Crutchlow looks like he's going to replace Spies in WSBK. Wrong move in my eyes. He should be in Moto2 ASAP. And last but not least, apologies to those I argued with that saying there would never be two yanks in the Tech3 team next year.

Now where's my humble pie?
