    Ed Zachary! :D

    It was brought up in this video and I've seen the discussion in several other website articles.

    There's always going to be some young kid who comes up through the ranks and dominates (MM93) ;) and breaks all kinds of past records. Even after a great record setting career most old racers retire and move on to quilting. :D

    Toprak is the real deal. Dig the dude’s riding style. Kinda loose. Kaw will retain him, he’s only getting faster.

    Haslam is done. Relagate him back to BSBK. Dude flat out can’t win races in WSBK.

    Would be cool to see Redding in WSBK.

    You think Redding could/would replace Davies?

    considering Bautista's track record this season I bet thats a thought since redding is killing it in BSB.

    Redding might replace Bautista if he jumps ship to HRC for the $$$

    F1 has gone on without Schumacher. AMA Superbike has gone on without Mladin and Spies :D

    Alex Marquez to Petronas Moto2 next year (basically Josh Herrin’s old team), then onto the Petronas Yamaha in 2021.

    Dave K DaveK über alles!

    I just read they threw the Kiefer team out of moto2 for 2020 with Forward and the American team in danger of a similar fate.

    Didnt the American Racing team have money issues all year? With Joe Roberts team mate performing exponentially better on the same bike i'd be willing to be Joe is back stateside in 2020, maybeeeee find a WSS ride but doubt it.

    I think DORNA is trying to trim it to 28 full time riders...

    Sure MotoGP will survive without Rossi but they will take a financial hit from SWAG sales. Maybe only slightly from ticket or subscription sales.

    Its almost dead. Zero intrest from anyone, and the stands are empty.

    The Puccetti team boss has already been quoted saying that Toprak won't be racing with them next year. It's looking most likely that he'll be riding a blue bike next year.

    There are also murmurs that Redding could be joining Tom Sykes next year...

    If you think that's happening, you should look up some quotes from Lin Jarvis.

    Speaking of Sykes...

    Dude has done a fine job of landing on his feet at BMW hasn't he?

    Not clear where Syahrin is heading. Petronas has apparently offered 'help' him to find a spot but it left the impression it didn't go any further than phone numbers though.... (Last bit is pure speculation on my part)

    What makes you think Lin Jarvis will be around next year?
