What a joke, Tech 3 cannot even afford to stay on after races for virtually free testing, so stiffed JT, a great rider.

Spies fans are clearly so stupid they have already antagonised most MOTOGP fans against him, the races are mainly run in Europe, plenty of Ale to throw over the Septic ****....

Suzi Perry must be devastated to no JT won't be around now next year but she will keep banging on about twice as much now till the season over. I'am not a JT fan but I'am glad least he should be going back to WSB now where he can/should be able ride a bike again flat out.

Make America proud guys!!!!

Alex is just pissed because JT was horrible, and hit his peak at Qatar LAST year, I guess some people are just not cut out for MotoGP, and lately those people have been Brits :( Too bad, so sad..... :rolleyes:

For his sake, I hope he does well but don't expect miracles people, he's not the second coming like a lot of you think! MotoGP and WSBK are two totally different platforms. Only time will tell I guess.

Good luck to the bloke though.

Before all the brickbats are thrown at JT again (gets boring anyway), I"m led to believe that as a Yamaha contracted rider (and the fact they were friends) Edwards got to see Rossi"s data, but as a Tech 3 contracted rider, Toseland did not. If that is true it might go a little way to explain why i) he was off the pace for most of 2009 ii) why he wanted a swap of mechanics as this would be the only way of getting Rossi data (indirectly).

Just a thought

Come on now. It's not that JT's been the worst ever rider, it's that Yamaha knows exactly where the JT path leads.
Ben has proved himself this year, and although he might not be able to run up front from the start, Yamaha is looking after their future past 2010. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't, doesn't exactly apply to Tech3 now does it...
The sooner Ben gets into MotoGP the better. Everybody knows that.

One thing's for sure. Nori won't be "crying is his ale" tonight.
