With riders like Iannone, Simon, Redding, De Angellis with a year under their belts, and Sofuoglu coming from riding 600s in WSS during 2010, it's hard to know where Kallio & A. Espagaro will fit in next year. It won't be as easy as they will think coming down from MotoGP. I'm more interested in how the ex 125 riders will do (Smith & hopefully Marquez/P Espagaro)

I definetly wouldn't count Kallio out, but wouldn't be surprised if Redding ends up showing him the way. Redding will be a huge star someday if he can manage to stay on competitive machinery that fits him. He's all of what 17 years old?

Great news for Scotty as I think he'll be able to learn so much from Mika (and the way Scott is progressing maybe vice versa!!).

Good luck Mika!

If there is a clear loser in this inner-team rivalry it will kill that rider's career.

If Kallio has serious designs on ever getting back into MotoGP he HAS to beat an 18 year old with 1 year experience out of 125's.

If Scott has serious designs on getting into MotoGP he HAS to beat a man who has essentially failed in the series and left with a whimper.

I quite like Mika and his reserved nature, and at points in his rookie year he looked really impressive (hence getting Stoner's ride for 3 races).
