Money talks and all that...

A star of the future completly derailed. fausto gresini should have had some honour and stuck by him after last season's crap moriwaki / change of chassis effort.

Hope you get sorted gino, keep fit and a ride will come once the crashing starts.

I feel for him personally ... but seriously, the US has had two winners of the Red Bull Rookies Cup but none of them get a second look by anyone at any level. Jacob Gagne beat Danny Kent in 2010 and look at where Danny is today... Jacob is nowhere.

How many 'Stoners' are being missed because they aren't European? :?

Gagne and Beach chose to go back to the US because you make money (Ask Chaz Davies...) in their championships but its odd that they were not snapped up like subsequent Rookies runner ups.
Bad move by motogp, with 3 US races and no young hopeful to cheer for.

Rea should be supported by the Circuit of Wales/FTR group as they bid for a spot on the calender in the near future. FTR have lost faith in the moto2 category as the teams have flocked to Kalex & Suter in recent seasons.
They live on under the brand SpeedUP

sorry to be devils advocate, but gino didnt set the world alight last year, and if you are a potential sponsor you want your brand or product ' out there'.... so when the potential sponsoree says 'please email me @sky.com', he would be as well having a hotmail address. it doesnt fill you with confidence that the boy is going to get bodies looking at your company.
own website?
up to date wikipedia even?

if youre not gonna bother that much about promoting yourself dont moan about lack of sponsors.

High opinion of himself? Gino is one of the most modest riders in the paddock. Anyone who has ever met Gino, wants to meet him again. He puts his heart and soul into his racing, trains like a champion and is an absolute gentleman off track. He has worked extremely hard to get to where he is today and deserves his place more than most in the world championship. I assume you meant he hasn't won anything? You obviously don't follow racing do you? He effectively won a world championship in 2009 by winning the European Superstock 600 championship (series running alonside WSBK). Gino was a podium finisher in World Supersport...and WON in Brno in 2011.

People like you Dexys Midnight Runner haven't the first idea. His entry into Moto2 wasn't a smooth one. He tried his best on a **** bike and anyone with any knowledge or appreciation for the sport will know how bad Gino's situation was in 2012. Wet races evened the playing field and Gino showed what he was capable off. He won a Moto2 race in

Continued... He won a Moto2 race in Sepang this year before the rule book gave him 3rd because the slow coaches at the back hadn't crossed the line in time.

Give him a good bike and he'll deliver. The guy oozes talent. Maybe you should read up on how many racing fans go crazy for his riding abilities.

The Brit pack in GPs like your Reddings, Webbs, Kents etc have yet to set the world alight. Redding in one of the best teams, hasn't won the champ yet and this is his 3rd or 4th year now. Had Gino been given that opportunity...the outcome would have been different and a lot of people know it.

So pipe down trolls. We need to get behind this kid. He's special!!! #getginoaride
