Last chance! MotoGP Rider of the Year vote

CLICK HERE to rate each of the MotoGP World Championship riders out of ten for their 2011 performances...
Crash.net's 2011 MotoGP Rider of the Year vote will end in just a few days.

The top ten riders - as determined by average score - will be revealed from December 22nd onwards, with a list showing the ranking of all 17 riders to be published after the winner is announced.

So far almost 75,000 individual votes have been cast.

Further information about the poll and how to vote can be seen below...



The MotoGP season is over and with it the end of the 800cc era. Casey Stoner has been crowned world champion for a second time, during his first season at Repsol Honda, despite stubborn resistance from Yamaha's defending champion Jorge Lorenzo.

Stoner's team-mates Andrea Dovizioso finished third and fourth, with Lorenzo's team-mate Ben Spies a first-time race winner on his way to fifth, ahead of the much-missed Marco Simoncelli.

Valentino Rossi ended his first Ducati season equal with Simoncelli on points, but with only one podium compared with two for the late Gresini Honda star, dropping Rossi to seventh.

Rossi's factory Ducati team-mate Nicky Hayden, Monster Yamaha Tech 3's Colin Edwards - the top satellite bike rider - and Gresini's Hiroshi Aoyama completed the championship top ten.

But riders aren't just judged on where they cross the finish line - factors such as their machinery, performance relative to team-mates and injuries all need to be taken into account.

The ability to communicate with fans and promote the sport to a wider audience is also part of being a 21st century motorsport star.

With that in mind, it's time for you to tell us your verdict on MotoGP's class of 2011, by giving all 17 full-time riders (shown in alphabetical order) a mark out of ten, so we can rank them according to your ratings.

Stoner obviously, and he dominated so convincingly , and it wasnt like thing all went his way - jerez knocked down , misano drained, motegi tank slapper , and yet he still smashed everyone, and then there is that riding style , im afraid he will run away with it even more next year ... and the next year ... and the next , by then rossi will have retired and hope marquez or some new up and comer will challenge him

@Daniella46forever "dispite everything, he remains always polite, friendly, sincere and a regular guy " I'm sorry but Rossi is hardly like that towards the other riders who beat him on a regular basis. I would say he is pretty much the opposite.
