So WOW, what do you mean by he MUST have a good manager - the implication being that otherwise he wouldn't be returning to motogp. Perhaps you watch different races to me, but he has speed. And perhaps you missed the last race of the season. Suggest that is why those in the know keep on employing him. But what would I know, I'm just an Aussie!!

Congratulations Ant - Go Westy....

I'm an Aussie but think he's a whinger. Always bleats everybody else has a better bike or has bought a ride. Dont think he has "speed" any more just quicker than most in wet or damp conditions when he has nothing to lose.

Better break out the carbon fibre moulds, they're gonna need 'em. The lad has never done anything, like I mean, ever.....This just shows that anyone with the right connections can get a ride on one of these CRT bikes or is that they're so desperate they'll chuck anyone on them. It's going to be horrible next year watching him and the rest of the CRT crowd just get in the way of the real racing between the Honda's (Yam and the Duc will probably be scrapping with the CRT's at this rate)......but quick Aussies, collectively group together and dis my comment irrespective of his (very limited) abilities on a bike, come on, hurry up already. You know you can't resit.

@ Ann

Speed Master.

I can't agree that he deserves this though. He has been SUPER inconsistent. The only reason he got fourth in that last race was pretty much dumb luck. Although, he's solidly out performed Max Zeukirchner... Oh, wait, that's not that hrd.

Good luck anyway..

Former Gp winner has been lumped with 2nd class bikes all his riding career and still puts in up front in the rain because it's the great equaliser..if the CRT bikes are within 4 seconds in testing with no-bodies onboard, wait until the weather gets nasty and Ant West, and other quality riders, get a sniff of a podium then we will see something special!!..couch-racers here who bag- out these guys and who circulate in the slow group at their local ride day should learn and earn some perspective..these guys are the real deal!!
