MotoGP » Nicky Hayden: Turning the page

oldsquid: He has done nothing for ages, why does he continue to get top dollar rides? Josh Hayes should get a chance to fly the American flag, he at least has the minerals to run the numbers whereas Hayden just circulates and collects a cheque.
Yeah, he had a decent run on the T3 Yam as a stand-in, but do you honestly think he would enter GP and do better than Hayden on similar equipment? No way. Hayes would be a legit SBK contender for sure, but lets not get carried away with the notion of an old guy that spent his career on production bikes being the answer to the need for an American in GP.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden: Turning the page

kirk66: Nick will get one more 2 yr contract out of this for two reasons. 1- His results will be better with the new bike. 2- HRC needs Nick since there are no other American's in the pipeline. This is coming from a fan. I figure Nick has the ability to run as long as Colin did if they let him.
As a fan (being realistic) you are pretty much on-point. Most of his "prime" years were lost on a Ducati, and then there was the proddy Honda. But I hope he doesn't drag it out as long as CE did... a move to SBK would be better at some point than going in GP to the bitter-end.

WSBK » WSBK Rider of the Year vote: 6th

GSiebert: 6th !! Come on, the guy doesn't know how to finish races ...
...and Ducati currently doesn't know how to offer an SBK package that can win without requiring a rider to push to the ragged-edge (and beyond), lap after lap... this is the bike that made Checa throw in the towel! Big ups' to DG. Dude has the skills, style, and desire. Let's hope they finally give him a bike that doesn't want to "close the front".

MotoGP » MotoGP Rider of the Year vote: 10th

RyanJG: Bradley shot himself in the foot when he openly stated at the beginning of the season his aim was top satellite rider. Top satellite and sixth overall (behind only the factories) should have been achievable for him. Eighth and beaten by his team mate and an Open Yamaha is not a recipe for a healthy career.
I applaud him for the ambition. Problem is, as you have mostly stated, is that he isn't delivering. I know this will make some people mad, but ask yourself this question- if BS wasn't so likeable as a person, would he still get the same level of praise? What if this was a guy that didn't have much of a media presence? I like Smith and hope he can finally get down to business next year but I don't feel the criticism towards him is unwarranted. So close yet so far from being true GP material IMO. Next year is go time or bust.
