I wanted to stay on topic as every thread in this poll has ended up the same but we were told from the start that 2 factory riders hadn't made the top 10. One of them was clearly Spies and as Hayden was 10th, it was obvious the other was Rossi. Can anyone imagine any of the remaining factory riders, Lorenzo, Stoner, Pedrosa, wouldn't have made the top 10, regardless of any supposed fan block votes? So I can't understand the "I do hope Rossi isn't no. 1". What's more, while some may underestimate the competitiveness of the 2004 M1, Rossi still had to ride the wheels off it to beat the Honda's. The tyres were scalloped after every race. His team mate finished 7th in the standings. Stoner's brilliant performances on various Ducatis is rightly compared to his team mates, so give Rossi his due too.
