MotoGP » Miller to join Crutchlow at LCR?


Realist:
RSMick: What's wrong with going straight from Moto3 to Motogp? The last Australian who did it won GP's. Others have done it, so old news.
No, Stoner was in both 125's and 250's (..essentially M3 and M2), and he spent a total of 5 seasons between those two classes. He did not go straight from 125's into the premier class.
Who said anything about Stoner??? For a realist you don't know your history.

And your point? All the riders who have come from Moto2/250 apart from Aoyama and Hernandez have been in 125. All of those who have have won GP's in 125 except Abraham and Aleix Espagaro. A fast rider is a fast rider, what ever you stick him on, Miller might be rubbish on a Motogp bike, he might not as well. I would sooner take a Moto3 rider than the current crop of superbike riders.

Motojunky: Interesting? Years ago they stopped rookies getting straight on to a factory bike due to safety reasons I thought. Now there is talk about putting upstart Miller straight onto a rocketship from the tiddler class.
In 2010 they stopped rookies going on to factory bikes to give satellite teams the chance to sign a top rider therefore attract top sponsors, Poncheral asked for it, the Spies effect. Along came Marquez with Repsol cash, with only Gresini and LCR available to him, both with Rival oil company backing. Although they wanted him they would have had to break there long time association with Castrol (Gresini) and ELF, for just one year. The oil companies would have put their money into another team and would have left them without an oil backer. Therefore they didn't want to be forced to take Marquez. Bike racing is dangerous what ever the class, even minimoto

Yossarian: McCoy was great to watch, he could back it in like Marquez on his Moto2, saw him go head first through a braking sign at the bottom of Craner curves though
Yes that was in his first season with WCM replacing Crafer after he was sacked, he smashed the polystyrene distance to corner sign to pieces with his back, was lucky to get away with just a broken ankle, I was sat on the inside of the craners/hairpin. McCoys first season in 500's was on the NSRV for Hardwick Shell Advance.
