why do people think that CRT bikes will makes racing more competitive? There are two factory yamaha, four factory honda last year. how many times have we seen "close racing" between the factory yamaha or honda? I'm sure spies and lorenzo yamaha are the same specs just as stoner and pedrosa bikes but how many times have we seen close racing between lorenzo and spies or stoner and pedrosa?
The bikes have nothing to do with it, its the skills of the riders that are making the difference. Last year and the year before we saw some close racing between Rossi and Lorenzo because they have similar skills level whereas this year Spies is no where to be seen.
If you want close racing like moto2, get rid of the aliens.

@Ray Watson
"In that time, both have 2 world championships.

Stoner has 1561 points, Rossi 1539.
Stoner has 34 1st places Rossi has 24

Check yourself on the results from

I rest my case who is not the GOAT !!!!!"

Rossi isn't consider one of the greatest because of the last 6 years but because of his all career and the numbers of his career are very impressive, you can check it yourself on (Valentino Rossi's profile - Statistics)

Rossi in 16th seasons only 2 times classified worse then 3rd (9th on his rookie year in 125cc and 7th last year in motogp) and lets not forget that 9th times he won the WC.

If the CRT bike can make the races competitive like moto2 i'm in favour of it. It was good to see the best riders go head to head almost every weekend for the win.

The moto2 formula works lets see if they can bring that to the top class.

Maybe we are all just sick of listening to Rossi this and Rossi that and how wonderful he is, what I have loved this year is not seeing him on the podium all the other riders get on better now that he is out the equasion which is a fact and great.

If you are "sick of listening to Rossi" why you comment an article about Rossi??

A smart person didn't lose time to read it and post a comment, if you are "sick of listening to Rossi..."

You are just a hater

Can we please drop all of this irrelevant Rossi Vs Stoner crap, yes they are both mentioned in the article but the article is about CRTs.

Personally I don't much care what the rules are, although it will make more sense when the same rules apply to the whole grid. I just want edge of the seat viewing and I don't care that much if it's at the front or back of the grid. Of course it helps if you're a fan of a rider and care about the outcome - Colin Vs Randy could make good viewing.

No my friend, "we all" aren't sick of Rossi, we are rather sick of Stoner and his fans like you who instead of praising your barely smileable hero just go on criticising Rossi.

Stoner fans are a tiny weeny percentage of the global motorcycle racing fraternity, the great majority of which are Rossi fans and for many reasons. They just don't all talk english like Stoner fans so they are greatly underrepresented on english forums.

So, in the future please specify which "we all" it is you are referring to.

@me: very often mentions the names of Rossi and Stoner, preferably on the same "news" piece, just because they know what'll happen. It's what makes their site score "clicks". Now let's all be good boys, and get on with our keyboard fighting, their living depends on that :)

Ray Watson, that's not quite true, Rossi did have a few years experience on him in the top class, yes, but both started on 800'S at the same time so that arguement is fundamentally flawed, Rossi experience was on two stroke 500's and 990's. Casey has been the rider of the 800 era in terms of wins but they are both tied with 2 WC'S each.
