ok, well letting you know that I could only vote for one. No worries.

I'm going to go for Marquez, I dunno, I think he still has some fight in him. If Honda can get the bike quick enough , he can ride it. The rookies are simple fearless and are taking the riding to new levels

Sorry Fuzzy, I don't know how it works.  @Kamanya  edited it for me to allow three votes.  I have no idea how it works.  Let's see if he pops around and have a look for us.  If you are planning to go for Marques M, the 93 dude, though you will be allowed no votes and I will arrange for you to go to bed tonight without supper!   ;)

You know.. Im' a Honda fanboy, have been since forever. So I support whoever rides on that Repsol machine. I even had to swallow my pride and support Lorenzo when he rode for Honda. I had to bite my lip and take it on the chin but support I did.

I am a massive fanboy of a few riders.. Dovi being one, Quarteraro I've been a huge fan of since he started racing. So much talent in one group of riders.

Fully understand as I am a huge Yamaha fan.  My worst two years were when my #1 rider, VR46 was riding a Ducati.  I do have a few other favourites now.  Obviously the Binder-bros, but basically Morbidelli and Bagnaia.  No coincidence that they are VR46 Academy riders I suppose.  Thankfully, two of my favourites, Morbidelli and DB40 are on Yamahas.

One thing that seems to have changed with MotoGP since MM had his crash is that its open season with regards to who potentially can win a Championship.

Morbidelli has shown that he has the pace and can beat the field.. someone to watch for sure.

For sure.  Two things made a huge impact on the 2020 and 2021 season.  MM93's crash and the development freeze.  I hope we will still see such close racing for years to come.  There are now a couple of riders who could win the championship, depending on how the stars align which is cool. 

Talking of MM93, I sincerely hope he gets over the eye nerve injury long before the start of next season.

Its why these guys get the big bucks, they have worked their asses off to get to the top of their game .. only for it to be taken away with one career ending crash. Its amazing that Rossi had the career he did for the length of time he did, although I swear he must be mostly made from titanium  :laughing4:

You are correct, but they do get paid very small amounts compared to other sportsmen.  Ridiculous amounts in fact.  Guys like VR46 and MM93 are not on the top 100 list for sportsmen earnings. 

Top earning rider:  MM93.  $12m per annum + $631000 per race.
Lowest earning rider:  Lecuona.  $200 000 per annum + $0 per race.
12 of the riders earned less than $1m for 2021.

VR46 bounces well.   :lol8:

Wonder what our Saffa's will be taking home for 22.

According to Forbes, the threshold to make the top 50 in the world increased from a measly $28M to $34M with Connor McGreggor topping the charts with a whopping $180M :lamer:

I believe BB33 was paid a measly $280 000 (no specific fee per race) for 2021.  My guess is DB40 comes very cheap.    Obviously they already earns some sponsorship money, like BB33 from RedBull to brand his helmet, etc.

That really is cheap, compared to other riders. Of course MM and VRR salaries are understandable, but does does MM's little boet get to $1M so soon?

eish...
compare it to the senior TT earnings..

£18,000 for a clean race win from start to finish might seem like a decent payout to many but think about the price of the bike, the transport, accomodation, fuel, tyres, mechanical upkeep…  There’s not going to be too much left over for beers – and think of coming 20th – that’s an amazing achievement in its own right!  The £300 would even cover the ferry!

Anyway as I say it is all about the prestige and these guys / girls deserve every bit of accolation and credit they get – they are at the absolute top of their game and to do it for the pay scale

But yeah, I understand that Motogp is the pinnacle, and where the big crowds and money lives.

Inderdaad.  Conor McGregor daarenteen kan die hele Noord-Wes koop.

BB het egter reeds, as ek reg verstaan, 'n huis in Andorra gekoop.  Simon Crafar is hulle buurman.  Dis waar hy en DB40 bly as hulle nie in SA is nie.
