It is time to face the music, let us hope that no moto2 youngster takes your ride next year. And I do not think it matters what nationality you are, I do not think anybody in motoGP (besides Karel Abraham) is there without working hard and starting from the bottom up.

well the rookie rule worked well for spies and yamaha,if it had not been in place,spies may have had a works bike, and that would have meant that he would have wasted 3 years on a yamaha works bike instead of just two.bring on crutchlow,and some passion for racing hard, ya all come back now

I bealive its a bit desapointing for some riders this rule drop so suddently when specially when its need, because of Marc Marquez.. But at the same way have to be honest i dont tinck that this could change to much the history.. Iven If Spies was him factory on the 1 year on Motogp the history will be the same.. aim not saying that Ben dont have the potencial to beat does guys because i bealive he can make better but we have to be honest to.. Spain is a great school of Motorcycling and the realaty is that most of the spanish riders at the momente are better... Marc marquez could have go to one semiofical bike but what would be the diferent for factory?? the Colors?? and the name of the Team?? because Marc will always run factory he is Repsol..

America allready rule Motogp him the past.. We have to give then the respect they deserve..!! American riders normaly are good but on recent Eras dont had been with the pace.. I dont like some of the changes of Dorna but today my friends money rules the sport and if Motogp whant to have Future they have to play with Marketing and with manufactors..
