I think the bottom 10 could make a very good living owning Track Day Riding Schools.

I'd agree with most of this but would question Iannone and Redding. Scott is in his rookie year and on an open rules bike so doing pretty well considering. As for Andrea, I don't believe he has the consistency. One week he can be fighting for a podium spot and then the next he's nowhere.

Think again, Scott is not in his rookie year, and not a open rules bike either. Andrea is on a very old beast.

Scott is in his rookie MotoGP season and is on a customer Honda RC1000V running open software just like Hayden. Not sure what your looking at Donsy.

I think Bradley could be good in World SBK. But I agree. Someone else should get his MotoGP ride. Would like to see another Brit get the ride. Perhaps one of the Lowes twins.

What a sad state of affairs MotoGP is in? There are only four competitive seats in the series, three of those seats have been occupied by the same racers for the last 7 years, yes Rossi did have a two year break from the sharp end when he went to Ducati but he was on the bike for seven years prior to that and welcomed back with open arms, and assuming Jorge signs then there'll be no change for another two. The hopes for anyone on a satellite MotoGP bike or worse "that other grade?" progressing any further are nothing more than a pipe dream especially now since Honda had the rules changed so they could leapfrog riders straight onto the factory bike?

In two years time the majority of people on that list won't be in motogp, no matter how young or good they are, the factory seats are taken and when they're ready for new blood they'll pick riders straight from Moto2 and Moto3? You could say if your winning in the lower classes your better off staying there keeping yourself in the limelight until the Factory teams are ready for you rather than moving up and languishing around in 12th to be forgotten about after a couple of years?

Do you think Pol's going to be on the Tech 3 bike for another two years, by which time don't you think Yamaha will have their eyes on some new rising star?

Interested in anything that Sucks, Bangs and Blows!
