Good to see a team who isn't intent on recycling old has beens!
Whether you like it or not CRT's are the future. Hope he does well for the team and his future!
Go the Aussies!

For those who don't know of him, Bryan is absolutely the right choice for this ride. Those of us who have followed his career are aware that he's a supreme talent - better than Bayliss and maybe even surpassing Stoner.

Here we go, comparing riders of different classes and claiming one is better than another. Once again the experts know more than the people whose job it is to spend the millions of dollars of sponsorship money and run a MotoGP team. What they looked at are his results when racing against bikes of similar performance, i.e the STK1000. His race craft is second to none and his ability to ride around bike issues are what stand out of this STK1000 season. He is a nice bloke who tries hard on whatever machinery he is given. He more than qualifies for this chance and it has nothing to do with him being Australian. Since when has any Australian been given assistance by the F.I.M? When an Aussie gets a ride they are guaranteed to have earned it.

I can now add more on to my previous post. Ryuichi Kiyonari is being strongly linked to be reunited with Samsung Honda alongside Alex Lowes in BSB for 2013. I can not wait to see King Kiyo back!

it's not so bad that people all around the world get the opportunity of racing in the world championship, so it develop the sport everywhere (while the rider is worth to be there)

same that's happening with girls that get a chance to be in the worlds.

I'm spanish and a I see quite a monopoly now of spanish teams and riders, no chance for many other people that could be good with the right opportunity.

good luck for Bryan!
