i think you'll see dovizioso & deAngelis from 250s along with lorenzo. toseland is coming from wsbk & it's possible spies may be here next season as well. the only ama rider who i think belongs here right now.

im looking forward to next season already, and this one is only half way. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

Why should a national level rider jump up that big a step?



because he' good & should'nt waste time in wsbk. nothing against wsbk of course.

Here is a question. Does motogp keep certain nationality riders to keep up fan support in various countries? hmmm.....



Yes, the USA seems to be the most represented nation on the grid and only one of the riders is of any significance, but its all politics so they keep getting rides [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

DePuniet is well worthy of staying, hes talented and fast so watch him in the future (same thing i said about Casey last year when everyone said he wasn't worth a ride)

Biaggi is finished with motogp, we have seen him look fresh and relaxed in WSBK but that is a reflection of the paddock, the atmosphere and the level of riding that he is submerged too. Motogp is beyond him now.

Its a massive step from national superbikes to Motogp, its a huge call to say Spies belongs here. Its much more realistic to say that he may be talented enough to be worth the risk. Furthermore if you consider Spies worth a go then Kiyo and Rea would be equaly qualified, but most teams will be looking for safer bets (more established riders)

rea... young, fast & promising. kiyo not the jap for the job. he's a sbker nothing more. i'd also say that his results in wsbk will be akin to those of kagayama. he's not gp material imo.

Well a lot of non-Americans would think the same about Spies, he's done nothing to prove himself apart from win on a dominant bike against a team-mate who's frankly, past it.
