Ever since moving to GP, JT seems to have lost his edge, and taking this constant pummeling can't help matters at all. Considering where the BMW is, and is probably going to be for the near future, hate to say it, but it looks like he could almost be better off looking for an ego boost somewhere like BSB pretty soon. Gota prove somehow he's still got it, and his current tools don't look up to the task.

he does seem to be using his brain this time and not trying to ride until he is fairly fit,in the past he would have ridden and probably fallen off and caused more problems.
Good luck James and come back when you are fit.

Just got to get something off my chest about this james is rubbish thing,
If james was so bad a gp and had lost his edge, why did he have over 100 points in his first gp year, and Cal so far has 30. Seems to me as if if was not that bad after all.

Just a thought.

Compared to Cal, James would be on a factory ride. At this point his rookie year, JT had 4 6th place finishes along with another 2 top 10 finishes. Cal only has 3 top 10 finishes (a sole 7th the best) and miles down in points. At this point, Cal is doing rubbish compared to JT no doubt. But let's not act like JT wouldn't have made a cheap watch blush at the way he fell apart his 2nd year though.

I think if anything crutchlows efforts this year shows how well James did in his first year at motogp....even if for lots of reasons he lost the plot in the second!!!.

Not sure what his issues are but I wonder if he's trying too hard to be the top dog again when the bikes he is riding are not capable?.

He's got the talent, just needs to find it again.
