We're yet to see what the graduating Moto2 riders will do, remember, that is Moto2, production based 600cc bikes with less power than World Super Sport, NOT svelte 250cc 2 stokes......and even then, there are a LOT of fantastic 250cc riders who never really lived up to their potential in the Premier Class, Biaggi, Capirossi, Elias, Pedrosa, Dovi.... All had good bikes.

The jump to 220+ hp, 150kg, rear sliding bike is a big step. Lorenzo had a training regime and went to King Kenny Roberts ranch to learn to slide. Let's see what the others will do.

same reason why do people feel the need to belittle Rossi,
is he not a great rider, is he not a past legend, one of the greats, whom his struggling at the moment.
thats how it seems to go in any sport, a past champion starts to lose and he is worthless.

Rainey was a great rider but his last championship was gifted to him from Doohan's misfortune. To be honest, I doubt Schwantz would won his championship either. Doohan had their number and would of romped away with the 92 and 93 WC if it wasn't for nearly killing himself!

It's amazing isn't it! Doohan said nothing wrong but to suggest maybe...just maybe someone might possibly beat his records. Hardly worth getting your knickers in knot but they just shows how utterly ridiculous Rossi fans are. They don't like Motogp...they're just totally infatuated with Rossi. It's nearly scary!

No one will beat rossi's record ever! 125, 250, 500 990 800 world champion so its unbeatable and this is from an average rider beating the best riders who were competing at the time.

What do you expect from Caseys his manager... all cynicism aside.. There must be a right moan everytime they get together both spectacularly uninteresting... zzzzz
Providing Casey keeps the huge techno advantage the honda has over the rest and Marquez stays in moto2 he might be able to catch doohan, but I doubt it, Rossi will beat him again before he retires and he'll go down as the best of the rest which he undoubtedly is..

this is completely unacceptable. No one is ever going to beat Rossi record. Ever. To even suggest it is ridiculous and besides stoner just moans.

I have coome to the conclusion that there are real fans, who appreciate all riders who manage to break into the ultimate class of Motorcycle Racing, and those who ting their hero would apprecaite the abuse they heap on other riders and fans.
