sorry to interrupt you guys, but is this still a comparison of edwards and bayliss as riders (i think they're both awesome although i like bayliss just a tad more) or is this now more a battle of US vs Australia? because i think that this would be totally unnecessary.

I dunno about antfan (who tends to like Australians more), but i am not from either of the countries and don't particularly care for either rider. I just think that Colin has done more than enough to show he is better than Troy.

Colin's Dad is Australian.so he's got good Aussie blood flowing in his veins, thats why he's a good rider , but not as good as Bayless.

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (tinks @ Jul 11 2007, 10:30 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>Theyre too strong characters to be in the same team so i dont think they could ever work like colin + vale do.
However lets face it vale makes up the difference with the bike or else colin would be winning. Vale has said he wil leave moto gp in 2010 so yamaha need to get a good replacement rider who is that extra bit special so theyve struck gold with lorenzo as he could be the one to carry on the wins when vale does leave.


Edwards is Rossi's shadow as if Lorenzo is going to want to be Rossi's shadow he will turn up thinking he is the top dog in the team.

I would love to see what would happen if they took each other down on the track.

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (antfan @ Jul 13 2007, 01:03 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>I have to disagree.. Edwards has kept his GP ride ONLY because of Rossi's power at Yamaha and Bayliss was ousted from GP because the Ducati GP squad treated him like shit (for a year.) Both Bayliss and Edwards struggled at Honda.

I think had Bayliss been given the amount of time Edwards has had on a GP bike he'd be doing better than Edwards is doing this year and in previous years.

antfan I agree..I hope that Ant is not going to be and pissed on by the green machine as Troy was with Ducati!!! But judging by all the news for 08 it very much looks like it will for Ant!!!

I hope Ant kills them in the remaining gpís...

Lets see the teams first. I can't see how Rossi and Lunatic can work together as a team. So Lunatic will have to figure out his bike alone. Can he do that? Time will show.

I agree..he will be the same as when he joined the pack in the circuit of M/Cycle gp racing ...crash crash crash....ijust go back...he was known as the crasher (every qp's & race) and that was when Casey was on 125ís and didnít...to tell you the truth heís going TO GET A BIG BIG SHOCK when he comes to motoGP!!!...heís not going to have the fastest unit (like he does in the 250ís) he cant ride in the WET...so JL will take some sorting out specially with his attitude!!!...cheers and I still think his a JERK!!!...just be modest "JL" and then everybody will love you!!!...Just like mAXiiii was in the OLD DAYS until he GOT THE BIGBIGBIG CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER!!!....U KNOW THE ROMAN EMPEROR's CROWN...but that was because he smoke to many Marlb....RoS...or IT might have been something ELSE??? This my prediction for 08!!!...Cheers

I agree totally. He is riding against a field of always losers. When he was riding against Dani and Casey he was only in the race long enough to be dangerous. Dovi was the same. The level in 250 has come down to where they can look good. I think they will have good battles with the old guys in the mid and rear of the field in 800cc.

Edwards better than Bayliss? You've got to be kidding me! Bayliss' genius was shown last year, coming from WSBK back to motogp and totally dominating, and winning was so brilliant I was lost for words!!!!
