Jerry Burgess (the man who helped Mick Doohan to 5 championships) has already signed with Yamaha.



As for the rest of the crew, some are following Rossi, but some are staying behind.

For the past 2 season Rossi was the best rider, on the best bike, with the best team. Now that he is no longer on the best bike but with his crew chief from Honda, Jerry Burgess he might be able to pull it off.

Sonmeone asked for a review of the movie. I would not call it a review, but here is my take:

It's not perfect, and $15 for an electronic projection on a 9 by 5 screen in a bare hall with folding chairs may look expensive, but don't miss it. 1 hour 40 minutes fast paced succession of interviews, comments, and race clips. Lots of spectacular crashes, some even more spectacular saves and passes, and a feel for what the GP circus must be like. What I did not care for: The sound track has a loud fast music background that makes it very hard to understand what is being said. Especially with these darn foreigners and their accents . There was too much emphasis on the Rossi/Biaggi rivalry, and the racing is too often reduced to crashing or not crashing. A lot is made of the riders' talent, and, imo, not enough of the work, training, mental preparation, and strategy they have to put into being that good. Production is a few notches above SpeedTV race coverage (duh), but not at movie level.

What I liked: It is fun, fast, and keeps the excitement up; you get to see a lot of really good race clips, some humor, some racers up close, and get a wide range of views, from Sheene to Hopkins.

I think it will help with the image of motorcycle racing, especially GP in the US.

Net: Well worth it. I would (will) see it again.

And Wayne Gardner too. That makes it 9 world championships under his belt.</p>

Yup. Thats true.</p>



So, it is not Rossi + M1 vs Honda, it is Rossi + Burgess + M1 vs Honda. That makes a lot of difference.</p>
