I for one am very dissapointed to see that Toesland has not been offered a works ride. I am sure if he was Australian or American, the works teams would have been fighting over him. Chris Vermulen went to a works Suzuki team, Colin Edwards to works Yamaha, Athnony West to Works Kawasaki. I think Toesland has shown his true colours this year against some seriously stiif competition, I only hope that he has the right package to be competitive.

Unfortuntely James blew his chances by binning his h***a 8 laps into the Suzuka 8 hrs. Mr HRC san was not impressed, to them it is the most important race of the year, if he had done well there he would have been on a h***a Moto GP bike.

don't know about full works bikes, but motogp website says the team
may be switching from dunlops (which is probably where a lot of
their problems are at the moment) so may work out well

another rider i wouldn't be surprised to see in moto gp next year
is max biaggi

think his style would suit the 800's

i'm not sure max could cut it in motogp now.
i dont know what tech3 are gonna run next year,
this year all teams are on a pretty level playing field with the 800's
being new for everyone. From what's happened in previous years though
i'd guess the sattelite teams will run lower spec motors and will not have access to chasis developments.
Roger Burnet is no mug though and i'm sure he's got JT the best deal possible.

i'd like to see biaggi back in GP's on an 800 - think he's still
got something to give

barros didn't do as well in WSB but he still has his moments
in GP's

just hope toseland doesn't end up the same as walker,hodgson.ellison
etc

I think JT had 3 offers on the table and one was Suzuki.

I am sure he took the Tech3 ride for all the right reasons. Only JT can know why, lets support him and not write him off 6 months before the curtain as us brits are prone to do (me included).

if tech 3 move away from dunlops then i think the ride should be ok
with enough potential for top 10 finishes

the main class for the first time since mcwilliams - and on what is looking like a fairly decent bike :)
