Yonny rides the hell outta that bike. The Avintia team has kept improving their bike all season long. Ive read that RDP has said that their has been no updates for their bike since the beginning of the season. We should be seeing him on a prototype next year. His style reminds me alot of Garry Mccoy, sliding around the track like an absolute maniac.

CRT's should be given more TV times since they are doing more "racing" in MotoGP. But Hernandez sure is something special, and that Avintia CRT is one good looking bike. CRT's are not bad idea after all, qualifying 1.7 sec from the pole in the halfway of the season is good enough to justify they existence. Spec ECU will be the key to close the gap, cause the traction control system of the prototype is just so advance, without that, CRT will be at least a second closer. Proof? RdP qualified 1.7 sec from Pedrosa, with a top speed of 317 KPH vs. 333 KPH, meaning they are that good cornering machine, with better TC or spec ECU they could be closer.

It was great to see Simon back om the podium in Moto2 after switching to the Avintia Suter team. According to the commentators, part of the reason he joined them was the offer of a a CRT ride in MotoGP. It'd be good to see him alongside Hernandez next year, especially if the CRT/Moto1 bikes keep developing as quickly as the Moto2 class has. While I miss two-strokes, would anyone seriously want to see a return to the expensive factory Aprilia dominated 250GP class as it was? Yet there was massive opposition to the change on this site at the time, just as there has been, and still is, to the CRTs.
