The real problem came when Rossi complained about the Mich. tires. BS did not want to supply anymore riders, but what I believe was a backroom deal, Rossi gets his tires and BS wins the single supply without any competition. Funny how that happened huh? Mich. could not get thier act together to produce a tire that worked across a wide range of operating temps. BS had the experience in this which is why the playing feild was leveled in 2007. Mich. was screwed because all the riders wanted to jump ship. Instead of allowing Mich to catch up to BS Dorna just enacted a single tire rule. A tire supplier should work hand in hand with the manufacturer to produce the best results. It shouldn't be "here's your tire, figure it out", which is essentailly what has happened. Ask Honda how that worked for them.
