I'd call it a tie. believe spies, who has raced w/both, said in an interview that both can do things on a motogp bike what no one else can do, and thinks stoner is slightly faster. he's also good friends w/stoner, so prob a bit biased

I'm not at all surprised to hear of the deal between Marquez and Honda for another 2 years. Mr. Marquez will be a very rich man by the time he is 25.

Just to bring it from the LeMans thread, I don't see Repsol Honda and MoviStar Yamaha keeping the same 4 riders next season.

I think it's kind of sad to see Edward's farewell tour go almost unnoticed. Even at COTA, the reaction was a collective yawn.

That's pretty funny. Finally gets out from under the red turnip truck and ends up on a gutless honda. Now development with the ducati is finally going somewhere. Poor guy is having a tough run.

Yeah....he is not getting what he was promised and is speaking out about it..finally. Sad thing is...IMO... if Nick was on the advantaged open class Duc , he would better than Dovi or Crutch. He deserves to be on a good bike..after so many years on the TT.

I think Crutch had no idea the mistake he was making...and how good he had it on Japanese equipment.

points table after Le Mans:

1 MM 125 (perfect sweep - unbelievable, and he naturally stays with HRC)

2 DP 83 (well behind his team-mate, but then his team-mate currently deserves an uber-alien status)

3 VR 81 (doing very well on a bike, that apparently is not as good as the Honda right now)

4 AD 53 (this is gotta be very surprising, considering Dovi΄s on a Turnip Truck!)

5 JL 45 (80 points to Marquez – he has bled on average 16 points per race! A huge disappointment, and if anyone is gonna get the booted from factory Honda or Yamaha teams, it actually looks to be him.. but he was Yamaha΄s clear no 1 rider just a few races ago, so frankly, I don΄t see it happening either. This is just a temporary dip in form, and he΄ll be up front again).

Dovi is not on the TT..he is on a whole new bike taking advantage of the open class rules.
