I gave Spies and Rossi 10s. Rossi continued to get podiums with severed ligaments in his shoulder. Ben Spies was quite phenomenal for a rookie and then owned in testing. A definite title contender next year.

It seems as if a lot of people have forgotten that Lorenzo was beating Rossi in points even before his injury. A lot of you can say that it would have been different if Rossi didn't get injured. But you can also think maybe if Rossi didn't break his leg, maybe he would have got hurt even worse than he did the next race.

"It seems as if a lot of people have forgotten that Lorenzo was beating Rossi in points even before his injury. "

Rossi's injury was after the first round, which he won, so how do you make that one out?

It was a season full of great rides, interesting developments, and disappointments. Honda found form with their bike, but george had already taken a commanding lead, ducati sucked, although stoner continued to ride it to, and often passed its limits. All in all, george was the man to beat all year, so congrats to him. My thoughts are that it will be a year of fighting between yamaha and honda next season. George and Casey fighting for the win most races, with ben, pedo, and simo collecting a win or so each.
IMUO (in my useless opinion)

@ AR

"And what fantastic articles would you come up with?"

Well how about an interview with Jeremy burgess? or an interview with Stoners crew chief? how about an interview with programmers about the current and future direction of the electronics? how about an interview with some of the factory engineers about the affects of the 81mm bore rule for 2012? ...I could go on..

Anything of these things would be better than this tripe

"Rossi's injury was after the first round, which he won, so how do you make that one out?"

Rossi had an "injured shoulder" after round one. It wasn't until round 4 that he suffered a broken leg. It seems as if there is a ton of excuses when it comes to Rossi and his fans...
1. Dani Pedrosa broke his collar bone. However, he attempted to race only a couple races later. He tried to tough it out, but was unable.
2. Ben Spies experienced a hurt ankle. It wasn't until minutes before the race that he decided to withdraw.
Some of you can say "Spies and Pedrosa were just not able to tough it out and race, but Rossi was". In my opinion, Lorenzo deserves an award for not crashing out. Casey Stoner would have given Lorenzo a good run if he could stay off the pavement. It's part racing. Getting on the tracks yields potential crash, so if it happens, it shouldn't be used as an excuse.

A bit misleading as the title is vote for the best rider of 2010 but then the actual poll is who was the most impressive. You can give multiple '10's to folks that impressed you. Weird poll... where are the results? I gave them all 10's cause racing those bikes around and finishing is really really impressive to me.

Lorenzo missed testing and had just come back for Qutar, the first race from a broken hand so spare me the injury rubbish of Rossi...forget the so called shoulder after the first round, he blooddy well got podiums in the last 5 races! That leaves the leg and he was getting beaten clearly by Lorenzo, he cracked under the pressure and up on his behind. All riders virtually carry injuries even when their upright..Stoners hand grafts, lorenzo's busted hand, leg breaks, collar bones...Its the first time rossi has had a bit of plaster...
Face it fangirls.....rossi got smacked senseless.
