@well the truth will set us free

Great Odin's raven. What a stupid thing to say (the burk bit). Not even going to bother to explain why you are wrong.

OK for those disagreeing, he had to do it now, I'm sure he would have much rather waited to the end of the season but this time it started getting in the way of his riding (see MarcVDS website)

Firstly it's carpal tunnel syndrome, not carpel. Secondly your article states that carpal tunnel syndrome is another name for arm pump. It isn't. Arm pump is one of the things can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, but that's not to say that CTS and arm pump are one and the same thing. In Scott's case I'm sure the CTS was caused by arm pump. The surgery he has had will not cure the arm pump, but it should alleviate the CTS symptoms.

All sorts of things can cause CTS, even pregnancy. Although I doubt it's that in Scott's case.

I suffer from CTS in one wrist (no it's not caused by *that* I use the other hand for that) but it's not caused by arm pump. In my case it's down to a previous untreated broken wrist, but there you go.

Remember Fast Freddie he suffered from arm pump, but in his case it seemed to lead to tendinitis and probably tenosynovitis.

Scott Redding is another rider who isn't able to show his true skills due to the restrictions, or lack of them depending on how you look at it, of Moto2. Scott is far too tall to be in Moto2 and should be given a chance in MotoGP. Surely some manufacturer is willing to take a chance on a lad that has loads of potential and could bring all sorts of good things to what is becoming a mediocre racing event! Young riders need to be brought through at the first opportunity and I think it would do nothing but good for the sport. Scott Redding would be a real asset to a good MotoGP team and also bring in some much needed personality!!

Moto2 is a specification class. The majority of components that matter aside from the frame are limted by the rulebook.
Most important are the engine snd the electronics.
These limit the power output.
When a tall relatively heavy man like Scott is racing a smaller lighter person like Marquez, he (Scott) is going to be at a disadvantage his bike makes the same power as Marquez bike so the heavier person is going to be disadvantaged.
To make it equal you either weight the lighter riders so the bike and reiders weigh ythe same regardless of the individuals size.
This happens in Moto2.
Alternativly you do away with the spec engine and teams run what they brung.

I think Espeleta would love to get Scott into MotoGP.

Aside from the fact he's a hot shot rider he quite marketable, Good looking, funny, good with kids - witness his minimoto school.

DORNA need a Rossi replacement and Scott could be that man to be it..
