I agree. Dont' know why but even to me as just a fan of motoGP all seems a mess. Maybe Sic's Death, The Fall of the goat, CRT's all play their own part. Either way, why keep risking his life if the flame isn't burning anymore. The Man can ride though. Not too many people can leave while being the fastest around.

It def sucks now, with the CRT teams, theres really two different races at the same time, they should let us view the CRT battles, we already know what the front looks like.. I'm really happy that Dovi and Crutchlow are front runners now...

I don't blame him, MotoGP has been lame for the last few seasons. The last exciting race was two or three years ago at Laguna Seca with Rossi and Lorenzo. Last week both WSBK races were each more exciting than the last three MotoGP seasons combined.

wsbk has been more entertaining for a little while now. Although it would be a nice throwback to have a Rossi biaggi battle

I don't blame him one bit, race politics, family time, wreck hazards and traveling just to name a few of the factors. Everyone has their reasons and priorities.
