:+1: you and me both, it killed me to see him struggle in the GP's...i mean he would be in the top 5 or so in points BUT never won a race that i remember? i'm sure i'll be corrected if so.

No, he rode the aprillia cube when he first came into moto gp but he's never rode the duc. i hope he gives biaggi and them boys fits next year in WSBK!!!!!! and i pray that spies will run circles around lorenzo BUT that little fugger can ride!!! it'll definately be interesting to say the least

I know BUT don't lorenzo and rossi have the same parts? i know when edwards went from honda to aprillia he did it more cause of his relationship with michelin along with the fact that HRC was treating him like a stepchild and not giving him much support as far as parts that the rest of honda's were running and he would have been on a satellite team on bridgestones. if yami puts spies and lorenzo on matching bikes then it will be very entertaining. i'm just still amazed that they would step over VR and offer lorenzo more cash than him after everything rossi has done for and with yamaha.....politics and racing, the same thing that's fuked up the AMA for the past few years!

I like edwards, he's a great rider, BUT even if he'd gotten better parts than rossi i doubt he could have beat him. Edwards has never really reached his potential in gps, i think he'll do great in wsbk on any team. Remeber that bayliss was the same, kicked ass in wsbk, floundered around on ducatis and hondas in motgp, went back to wsbk and kicked ass again.

Yamaha's just trying to secure their racing future (lorenzo). We don't really know the whole story about the contract offer so at this point it's merely speculation. I can see however that yamaha would offer less of a raise to rossi than lorenzo though just based on how much more rossi makes. Not to mention tht lorenzo has been in command of this years championship since the beginning and obviously yamaha knew that he can go anywhere and just might if they did not ante up. They definately would like both of them to stay, but they ain't gonna let the next 10 years (lorenzo) worth of title runs walk out the door for what may just be 1 or 2 more (rossi).
