Marquez pens two-year deal with Repsol Honda. Stays where he is through 2016. My guess is the rest will stay where they are too.

Colin Edwards to race Harris-built frame in Mugello?

I posted my thoughts in the Frog Race thread, only thing to say here is I think you're half right.

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.
