re: "Ben didn't suddenly lose his skill set!"

exactly, of course he didn't. and neither did rossi. this is MOTOR-sport not olympic track and field. million dollar motorcycles are a factor... always have been.

I hope Cal doesn't get left out in the cold. The lad belongs in MotoGP. But Herve apparently has some interest in DePuniet (Cal is a better choice as a rider, but maybe Herve wants a Frenchman, who knows), and with Redding and Iannone, or perhaps Petrucci, tipped for the Ducati "Jr." team, things are a little tenuous for Cal.

comments like "say goodbye to your career are really funny".
the only sure thing is that the manufacturers and the riders know a lot more than the spectators, and none of them make a decision in order to go worse.
Ducati is a really powerful bike with some issues in the front, we ll see next year what they are up to at ducati and how they will cooperate with dovi.
The bad things in motogp are the limitations in tyre rules rpm's and engines... it should be the place to innovate with prototypes...

I agree with the comment prior...his "smooth style" won't work with Ducati.

Notice how only those who like to slide or drift the bike do better on that machine, Stoner who won on it and Hayden who's doing better than Valentino.

Gary McCoy would have been good or one who rides like them?
