MotoGP Teams Can Run Four Riders From 2014

July 30th, 2013

It’s bound to improve things and let’s hope it works as currently there could be some very good riders either leaving MotoGP or staying on the CRT bikes and not properly fulfilling their potential!

Allowing four riders in each factory team means outstanding racers like Cal Crutchlow and Aleix Espargaro get the opportunity to ride equal machinery to those at the front. Stefan Bradl should also stay on what is essentially a factory bike (if his performance at Laguna Seca continues) and up and coming riders such as Scott Redding and Pol Espargaro will be able to enter teams worthy of their talent. Not that any MotoGP, factory, satellite or CRT isn’t but lets face it, as fans the more competitive they are the better the entertainment!

As top flight racing becomes ever more governed by electronics, it takes the best of the best to put on the greatest show. Therefore providing more front running bikes will keep the talent in the field and bring in new racers which should result in closer action and not see world class riders losing opportunities.

A year ago we watched Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo run away at the front with Crutchlow often amazing us by being there or thereabouts. In 2013 Rossi is back, Crutchlow is getting better and better and Marquez is a revalation! The aliens numbers have increased and there is racing! If there are more factory riders it 2014, we can look forward to a bigger invasion!!!
