Well, I think it's quite clear who'll take it. Although Haslam was great, Checa was shining, Max was simply the best. What about a poll that would ask "Who are the top 10 riders of 2000s?" or "Who are the best WSBK riders of all time"? Fogarty vs Bayliss vs Spies vs Nori Haga ... now that would be interesting!

If Max was really the best Rider, he would have won for three of the last four years....

Best overal package when combined with the Aprilia, yes, best rider... Nope.

Al, 100% correct! Max is NOT the best rider! He had the best bike/team/package. There were a handful of 'better' riders on the grid.

The Aprilia was way ahead of any other bike by far. Credit to Max for riding it well, but more credit should go to Aprilia.

@ Crash Net

The survey gets to Luca Scassa and keeps looping to .... Luca Scassa.

As much as the toatal scores I'd be interested to see how many 10s, 9s etc ratings each rider gets .... Because its easy for the totals alone to disguise if some dumb sob is, eg, rating a top rider 1 because they don't like the guy etc..

jimmy, oh of course, same here. Im a big JT fan, but i gave him a 3 i think, as he's had a hugely dissapointing season.

The problem is that the haters of all riders will have a field day with polls like this, so its pointless unless everyone is honest, and we all know that wont be the case.

Don't want to labour the point but that's why I posted for 'em to please forward all the data not just the totals - That way you can get some sort of handle on the knob-end to seriously thought about it ratio.

If you picked Biaggi that's fine but it's like picking Stoner in 2007... I would have being a die hard Ducati guy but alllllll the haters with there straight-line comment? Yeah that's the Aprilia. Not anyone but a LOT of riders could have piloted the best bike (by far) to a championship. Best rider IMO? Checa. Satillite bike with a older rider taking countless fastest laps, wins and podiums, destroying the actual Factory team. That's the best rider. Rider/machine combo, no but unless I misread were picking best rider right?! And his team failed him in the States or he 99.99999% would have taken the double at Miller.
