MotoGP 2010

Alright, in here I will try to post updates as we learn of them so we can see what 2010 is shaping up to be. Those with a - next to their name I do not know, help me out and I'll post regular updates!

Since teams change sponsors, come, and sometimes go, its MUCH easier for me to go by rider name, so I'll do that:

2009 riders and their 2010 teams:

Jorge Lorenzo - Factory Fiat Yamaha
Niccolo Canepa - ???
Nicky Hayden - Factory Ducati
Loris Capirossi - Rizla Suzuki
James Toseland - Awaiting Tech3 Yamaha extension or release
Valentino Rossi - Factory Fiat Yamaha
Aleix Espargaro - ???
Gabor Talmacsi - ???
Mika Kallio - Awaiting Pramac Ducati extension or release
Marco Melandri - Gresini Honda
Casey Stoner - Factory Ducati
Tony Elias - ????
Alex De Angelis - released by Gresini Honda, still looking elsewhere
Chris Vermeulen - released by Rizla Suzuki, still looking elsewhere
Colin Edwards - Awaiting Tech3 Yamaha extension or release
Andrea Dovizioso - Factory Repsol Honda
Dani Pedrosa - Factory Repsol Honda


New riders:

Alvaro Bautista - Rizla Suzuki
Hector Barbera - Aspar Ducati
Marco Simoncelli - Gresini Honda

Come on who doesnt want to see Rossi vs Spies ? Spies remindes me of a young Kevin Schwantz and Rossi is Wayne Rainey all the way . Did Spies flattrack when younger ?

Baustista is going to Rizla Suzuki..... Auyoma might be getting a call as well. There will also be a new ducati team next year I believe run by Bautistas current team.

If spies does go to GP, he'll be on a Tech 3 Yamaha next year.... Yamaha won't let him get away I'm sure, and they've already stated that they have a spot for him on the team.

He's great, but there's no way he can do in motogp what he's doing in wsbk. Even he knows that. I read an interview a while back where he states his uncertainty of being competive in motogp given his size and weight. If I find it I'll post it. It was on superbikeplanet.com. Also I find it amusing ducati states that they're so happy to have secured hayden when he was in fact at least their 3rd choice. Good for him though.

We will see Ben is a very humble guy he says allot of things to down play himself! i.e "Haga was pushing me the whole race and I was just trying to say in front of him" when in fact ben was what +9sec ahead of Haga

Why not? Casey did it, and he was lucky to finish a race on the privateer honda....

Hmm, could have SWORE I put Rizla Suzuki down there. Oh well, I'll fix it!

As far as Spies, I think we're all pretty certain about Tech3 being the team if he does go, but I won't put it on there until its confirmed!
