@sasha... I couldn't have said it better!!

Toni has come and gone with more chances than I can remember... look at the difference in performance between him and Bradl on the same bike!!... I mean he got dropped mid-season in Moto2 for goodness sakes!

Why not give the sub ride to a talented American rider for, ummm, the 2 US rounds?? I'm sure Yamaha would of given JOSH HAYES the chance to ride in MotoGP on a privateer bike... he deserves the shot based on performance!!

Toni Elias was actually one of the few to ride the Ducati with some resanable results. He did much better than Valentino is doing although I know Valentino is a much better rider. I would like to see Pramac with 2 bikes out there one with Elias and one with Barbera I'm sure if that happened the team would perform even better and these two guys could take the factory team for a fist fight!

Wow, the muppets are up early today!!

"Elias raced for the Pramac Ducati team in 2008 and his performance that year remains the most successful by a satellite Desmosedici rider, in terms of rostrums."

90% of you don't know sh*t, and have never even seen a race track. Bayliss, Vermeulen, Redding.....blah blah blah blah. Ever heard of contracts? Ever heard of racing fitness? Ever heard of not wanting to kill yourself?

I have a lot of respect for Toni Elias and I love his win or bin attitude but that bike is a career killer. I will keep my eyes on the gravel traps cos he'll be there or behind Petruchi.

I predict this is the last we'll hear of Toni Elias in Moto GP. He'll be on a bought ride in WSBK next year. Probably a Ducati. Who knows. It might end up being the best thing that happened to him.

Elias didnt get dropped, he left the Aspar team cause he asked them to change the Suter (which only supports Marquez and Luthi, every other rider has switched to different chassis ie De Angelis... ) for a FTR or Kalex, and the team didnt want it/couldnt afford it...
