After yesterday’s post about the MotoGP season opener, I saw this list of riders who have left the class along with all of the new blood racing the top class for the first time.
Gone are: Max Biaggi, Alex Barros, Troy Bayliss, Ruben Xaus, Roberto Rolfo, Franco Battaini, Shane Byrne
New riders are: Randy De Puniet, Dani Pedrosa, Jose Luis Cardoso, Chris Vermulen, Casey Stoner
It’s going to take a few races to get used to the new names and to stop wondering where the other guys are. Is it just me or is this a bigger turnover than usual?
