LCR team 2015

I see Cal Crutchlow and Jack Miller will be LCR teammates next year. That's cool!
I'm anxious to see how Crutchlow will do on the satellite RC213V. He's been testing on it, sounds like he'll have a bit of a learning curve, but he seems optimistic.
Looks like Miller will be riding the Open Honda, I'm assuming thats the RCV1000R. It sure will be interesting to see how he fares moving from the 250's to the GP class.
I haven't decided if I like him or not. Dude can ride the snot out of the 250, but I didn't think much of his immature pouting and non-interaction with Marquez at Valencia. What, he didn't know it was possible that the very scenario that occurred, actually did? He won the freaking race, on the top podium, yet he acted like an ungrateful brat.
Maybe that was an isolated incident. Like Aleix's little temper tantrum when he smashed his own windscreen with his fist.
Time will tell, I hope Miller does well next year.
But I really hope the best for Crutchlow. We've seen that he has great potentiol, now if he can be more consistent. Hopefully his Honda wont crap out on him like the Duc did more than once this year...

Where is the news that Pedrosa gets fired for being a habitual tail pipe sniffer of Marquez and Rossi?

Honda needs to get off their ass and sign some better talent than that hack.

I like Cal, I'm hoping to see a lot more out of him next year.

Miller needs an attitude adjustment, on/off and during/after the race. Making Aleix sit up and as many times he did was just dirty racing (if you ask me). I really hope race direction doesn't let it fly in GP.
We all know that Val wont.


How about a Repsol Honda team of Marquez and Stoner

Currently Eugene Laverty and Nicki Hayden as team mates.
Plus the open Hondas now have pneumatic valves, so the revs, power, and speed is much improved over 2014.

Still not up to par compared with the factory bikes (and HRC will make sure of that), but at least it will give Nicki a fighting chance next year.

I'm looking forward to Suzuki and Aprilia returning to GP with factory rides. Aprilia is said to be moving away from WSBK and putting a full fledged effort in GP. Suzuki has Aleix and Vinales, who were putting down lap times not too far off Marquez. A little more testing and i think Suzuki will be contender.....especially with Aleix riding it.

Where's Bradl going?

As far as Pedrosa, he's a contender with a little notch of bad luck EVERY season. Seriously, some of his mishaps are completely out of his control. Like Marc clipping his traction control at Aragon last year. On his birthday, no less.

I'm looking for Crazy Joe Andrea Iannone to do well on the Factory Ducati next year too.
