Most motogp races are a snoozefest unless theres changeble weather. Its pointless having 25 bikes when only 2 riders (4 if lucky) can battle for the win!!

If they didnt crash Rossi and Lorenzo would have been on the podium at every round :?

Stoner has only been fully fit for 5 races (missed 3 completely) and he's still comfortably in the top4 of the standings :(

"where would dorna and moto gp be if rossi went to race superbikes for the crack before he retires"
The sooner the better so long as he takes all his fan boys with him,
GP racing was here long before Rossi and will be here long after,

The real Deal have you been to a race recently?

Rossi gets more fans and noise than all the other riders put together! Whether it be Spain, Italy or England....

The way most of the yanks on here go on about Spies you'd think he's the seconding coming of Christ on a bike or something. I hope he lives up to some of the hype if only to add a bit more excitement to the front of the pack. Can't see that happening for a few years until he scores a factory bike though...

Yes, we shall see if Spies flops like all of those superbike rider before him.

Of course you mean, Roberts, Doohan, Lawson, Rainey, Spencer, Schwantz and Hayden right?

By the way for everyones information Spies does have experience on 250s and 600s. Carrying momentum and elevated corner speeds won't be completly foreign to him.

MotoGP is fast becoming an expensive European and becoming irrelevant to the rest of the world. MotoGP needs to look at riders buying there way into this class. While the spectator numbers are good in the European country like Italy, Spain etc, in the Rest of the World spectators are rushing across the WSBK as they have affinity to this class as they most likely have a fellow national in the class.
Im not say let less talented rider into MotoGP due to there nationality, I am say stop allowing less talented riders from Europe buying their way on to the best machinery. :rolleyes:
See ya I'm going back the WSBK as it is more entertaining.

I think the accumulative talent of the riders for next year will be the highest we have had in a few years. Thus, theoretically, there should be some good battles. Most of the riders signed have been a winner of one championship or another, and most of the others have been 2nd or 3rd in championships.
Yes it would be nice if they increase the number of riders. I think Moto2 will be an important test to see how some thier regulations make for good competition. If successful, I think MotoGP may benefit from adopting something similar to allow for more teams to get involved. I don't want a common engine for all teams, but some of the leasing ideas may help. My two cents :p

I just think it's a huge call to expect Spies to be up front, mixing it up with the top 4 in his first season on a satellite bike. He would need superhuman riding ability to pull it off which obviously a lot of you on here think that he has??
