watching JLo Rossi Pedro and MM fighting for 3 steps on the podium would be even blisser :)

I have to agree with you this time, buddy! :) Wouldnt say it better. I hope Vale at least adds a few more wins to his list next season. Although, I hope for much more. If Honda guys get the kicking yet again, that would be awesome.

2006 Rocket ship? Who you talking about Nicky? and then you end your whole post on Stoner cracks.

Interesting stats for sure, if its to do with Stoner then they are totally made up as in 2007 he was WC and also in 2011.

Jiri Somek who agrees with you also must know who you are talking about but its no racer than I have watched in the last decade.

Keep the creation of facts coming and also the Fossi excuse book as you'll need it if his results are not 12-16-10

Following that logic, 2010 - Lorenzo pressure, Rossi cracks. 2011 and 2012 - bike understeers, Rossi cracks completely... you can twist anything if you want.

Anyway, Stoner's retired, it's Lorenzo, Pedrosa, and a talented but unproven rookie now. That's about a one in three and a bit chance.

The question is what results constitute a success?
Given the above, it must be a lot more than an occasional win.

One thing is certain - there are no excuses for Rossi in 2013.

What will be a success for Lorenzo? Winning the championship, otherwise... loser.

What will be a success for Pedrosa? Winning the championship, otherwise... always the bridesmaid.

What will be a success for Marc Marquez: matching the big guys' pace, a few podiums, otherwise... overrated.

What will be a success for Rossi: multiple wins and finishing in the top 3, otherwise...he's lost it.

Rossi needs to be winning multiple times(say...3 or 4 is acceptable) then it will be a success. he's kinda remind me of biaggi as the next fallen legend, biaggi once asked "give me the same bike like what he has right now and i will beat him" then they really exchanged the bikes , rossi to yamaha and biaggi to honda and biaggi was beaten fair and square, now the same with rossi and stoner. anyway i will still support THE DOCTOR!!!!!!!

If considered by many a fraud and exposed for 2 win less years, I would think it logical that a win would constitute success???

The haters spouse that rossi is a fraud and owned by the CRTs along with everyone else, I would think it logical that a win would constitute success???

3 younger spaniards on top flight (equal) machinery and one of those a legend in the making, I would think it logical that a win would constitute success???

As an a side...MM loves to fight, rossi wants to fight and pedro has discovered the joy of fighting, I think Jlo needs to watch out in 2013.

Yeah I think Swiss Judge has the year wrong there (rocket ship in 07, and cracked in 08/09), but otherwise on the money

@ Dave,
I think MM may fight himself a little at the beginning until he settles down.
I peg Pedro as Rossi's #1 competition (that 2013 RCV fits Pedro like a glove), and I am thinking there may not be much between JL and VR
