I find it a total insult to compare Edwards to Bayliss. Edwards should only be compared with other losers not a winner like Bayliss.

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!!!!

Yes boys “IT IS AN INSULT!!!” to compare and degrade!!! Bayles just proved last year and mind you in the most sort of to be competitive race of 2006 that he can cut it with the best and beat them....where was Nicky???? Where was Val??? Oh he CRASHHED!!! lets put everything into perspective as far as Mr. T.Bayliss is concerned!!! First ride on a motoGP for 3 years etc etc....and what did he DO!!!....lead every lap of the...what else do you want him to prove??? Troy you’re a CHAMPION & A CHAPION BLOKE TO BOOT!!!...we need more guys like Troy in any SPORT!!!

Anyway, back on the topic.
I wonder if Lorenzo will be any good. I'm thinking back to when Biaggi started his 500 career after dominating 250s for 4 years. He won first time out didn't he? He was runner up in the class that year? But he never actually won the 500 or motogp title. I wonder if all the hype about Lorenzo isn't just a little bit much. Only time will tell.

The lorenzo boy will either impress from the start or just go to pieces when Vale turns the screw.You can see him (Vale)creeping up to Casey gradually already,only time will tell my friends.

If Lorenzo won the 250cc championship, there's no reason why he shouldn't get the factory ride from Yamaha.

Jesus Christ, some of the comments in here are unbelieveable.

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

Of course, d'uh! That's why Edwards is so good, and Stoner, because they have Aussie blood! How could we all be so stupid?

It sounds like something some certain Dictator would write for his speaches, riders are good because they're good, not because of the f'in country they originate from.

It is hilarious to see so many people hail Bayliss better than Edwards based on one race, would we all agree Simon Crafar was better than doohan?? Didn't think so.

As For Jorge, i think many of you have him seriously misjudged, take time to listen to his interviews and you will find him more down to earth and less big headed than any of you like to think, you may even notice how he almost always gives credit to his competitors for pushing him hard and in even beating him. Also i think he is intelligent and mature enough to approach motogp with a learning head, he knows Rossi will have a lot to teach him and he knows watching and listening will work to his advantage. I hope he stays on his bike as much as possible, he was never a major crasher so i hope that continues.

In this case, if or when doesn't make much of a difference.

The European press seems to think Edwards will be replaced in the Yamaha team by Jorge Lorenzo next year, but we don't buy it yet.

First of all, Edwards is running pretty well. Is a rookie going to come and perform better, getting some poles and putting the bike on the box? We doubt it.

The second factor is Edwards has been an ideal teammate to Valentino Rossi. Rossi likes Edwards and is comfortable having him on the team. And what Valentino wants at Yamaha, he gets.
