I Ride: Honda CRF250 (modified for Dirt Track)
I hate the riders market to be this early, but this was by far the most enjoable silly season I remember

I however would be really happy to see Dani racing another couple of years and with a different bike. Hope the rumors are true!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but Movistar have put off their talks for sponsorship with Yamaha for next years and sky also haven't renewed yet. I'm sure it'll all work out fine though, Rossi is too big of a star for it not to and Monster is supposed to be Yamahas plan B if Movistar don't work out.

Maybe Valentino isn’t interested in owning a satellite team and is aligning the sponsors to get behind him as boss of the factory team instead?
He’s certainly ambitious enough and has all the credentials and contacts he needs...
Given this seasons unusual struggles for Yamaha, he might feel he could do a better job?
Wouldn’t blame him...

I hadn't heard anything about that. As has been said, Vale is too big a star to not have a gold plated sponsorship backing.

Does anyone imagine Marquez would give a shit about ever riding a Yamaha or having a characterless prick like Jarvis as his team boss??

Absofuckinlutely. Yamaha would move mountains (as would any manufacturer) to gain MM as rider.
