I didn't vote but glad that Cal came 4th. 0.1 ahead of Dovi shows that they weren't just close on the track this year. Yes Dovi scored more points and podiums but then again this was his 3rd or 4th year in Moto GP I think and Cal's second.

They say that qualifying shows outright speed and he outscored Dovi there. But Dovi is still a extremely good rider (he finished 3 rd overall the year before) and suppose that Ducati were right to sign him instead of Cal.

But in terms of laughs and personality Cal is def good for Moto GP (all riders like him) as is his willingness to really go for it. He surprised many this year (me included) with his speed (just look at his front row starts).

Off topic slightly - sad that Casey stoner has left, personally I think that poor simoncellis accident weighed heavily in his decision.

Crutchlow exceeded expectations by a greater margin than anyone else. He is on the up.
Dovi is quick and usually consistent, but reached a plateau a couple of years ago and isn't likely to be consistently higher.
If VR46 is not in the top ten, it will be as much due to CS27 fans voting him down as it is Rossi fans being realistic about 2 years in the wilderness.
Come 2015 it will be all change anyway with Kent, Marquez, Fenati and Maverick providing our entertainment.

Whether you or the quitter liked it or not motogp has always been about rossi and it always will be about rossi untill he decides to retire. Posted by a desperate LCtanner.

I hate to break this to you buddy boy,but Motogp was going LONG before your little hero showed up,and it will continue LONG after he retires.
Now stop crying,its getting a bit embarrassing.

Tetley.It has nothing to do with Stoner fans voting Rossi down.What has Rossi achieved in the last 2 years?
Nothing.He has voted himself down with his performances mate.Dont try to switch attention away from that fact by making sneering little jibes at Stoner.

Just goes to show how highly people think of Rossi that he doesn't make the top 10 finishing 6th in the championship, because everyone expects him to be a title contender no matter what.

Meanwhile someone like Cal crutchlow on a better bike with worse performances comes 4th

I think this caind of raking dont make any sense.. What means Rider of the year?? on what they focus to select there riders?? Each competicion have there on way of show us a performance level.. For exemple to see who is the rider of the year i think i only need to wach the standings of Motogp to wach that, this stndings represente all the worck that one rider did all year to deserve the place he had, to wach who is the best Roockie they have Roocki of the year list and on that one is Bradl.. To wach the fastest qualify rider they also have a list!! I mean this thing rider of the year dont make to much sense for me.. Exemple why people would choose Pedrosa for rider of the year?? i mean is riding one Repsol for years had a lot of experience and only because this year he did is best i will choose pedrosa for rider of the year?? i think Lorenzo for what he did with the Yamaha deserve that spot just like the standings say... Why i would put Cal im 4 place?? and Dovi im 5 place?? dont make

dont make to much sense to me is because Cal is a good qualifyer and less experience?? because on race he dont beat Dovi the suficiente times to be better place... what i whant to say is that the final standings of Motogp represente the place that each rider really deserve was what they build and had done!! I dont understand this ranking of riders
