MotoGP Rider of the Year: Full Results

Your full results for the 2012 Crash.net MotoGP Rider of the Year vote.
After calculating tens of thousands of votes, Dani Pedrosa has been revealed as your 2012 MotoGP Rider of the Year, polling an average rating of 8.86 out of 10.

Although we've already revealed your top ten, you were asked to mark all of the full time 2012 MotoGP riders - or at least the 20 that were under contract at both the start and finish of the season (so no Mattia Pasini or Roberto Rolfo).

The full list confirms that the only factory riders not to make your top ten were Valentino Rossi and Ben Spies.

Former double Rider of the Year winner Rossi dropped from tenth last year to eleventh this year as his average score slipped from 5.96 to 5.11 following another disappointing year at Ducati.

Factory Yamaha rider Spies' plummeted from fourth and an average score of 7.32 last year, to 18th and a score of 3.61 this year.

Cal Crutchlow was the highest rated satellite rider on your list, turning the tables on team-mate Andrea Dovizioso by the smallest of margins, with Aleix Espargaro recognised for his top CRT efforts with seventh on your list.

Here is the complete list and average mark out of 10 for each rider...

1. Dani Pedrosa SPA Repsol Honda 8.86
2. Jorge Lorenzo SPA Factory Yamaha 8.57
3. Casey Stoner AUS Repsol Honda 7.90

Rossi not in the top 10 is hate? i thought he was voted down because as the 'GOAT' and his 'cockyness' he decided he was better than everyone else and would humiliate everyone by winning on the ducati.. that went well didn't it.. he wasn't impressive at all.. infact he was just embaressing over the 2 seasons

cmpunk As with many other notable examples, it's because the people based their votes on expectations not just results - otherwise they'd just follow the world championship standings.
