There was only five winners in 2009, 2010 could possibly be one of the best in WSB history, no one rider will dominate. Very good chance of having all brit podiums.
Jonny Rea top three at end of season.

You've forgotten to mention the German. Max Neu. if fit is as good as anyone mentioned here. If not better. Hopefully he's got over his injuries. If so Max will definitiely win races if not the World Championship. (And I'm not German. Just not blinded by the whole UK hype.)

The reason there is so much hype around Toesland and Crutchlow is because they are both wicked riders who are undoubtedly going to do the business in 2010 :p

1. Haga
2. Fabs
3. Biagi
4. Rea
5. Crutchlowe
6. Haslam
7. Toseland
8. Corser
9. Byrne
10. Sykes

*Neukirchner crashes too much - will miss multi races due to injuries again.

** All the Brits will crash more than they normally would desperately trying to be top dog at each race (Crutchlowe/JT in particular) - consistency will win the 2010 Championship.

Good luck to all!!

How do you figure that Neukirchner crashes too much? He crashed once, like Regis Laconi did to have that horrific injury.

This season should be another classic, with so many unknown factors, like Toseland and Vermeulen coming back to superbikes and Crutchlow stepping up, plus Camier, Neukirchner, Sykes, Haslam all riding new bikes, the continuing development of the BMWs and Aprilias. That's without mentioning Rea, Haga, Bog Brush and Biaggi...

Roll on 2010 season!

Max N. has got only one problem: bad luck.

Actually he crashes very rarely. In 2008 he hadn't a single crash in a session until the 10th round in Brands, of course except of this last lap incident in Valencia. In this one, which wasn't his fault at all, he broke his collarbone.

Remember Monza: He was in the lead through this stupid chicane. Usually this was the safest place where he could have been, but not in Max' case. Again, this wasn't his fault.
