Are we in for the greatest motoGP season ever?

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Dec. 29, 2003
The fact that the best rider in Moto GP has just put himself on the third or fourth best brand of bike for the 2004 season is enough to make the coming year of racing exhilarating. Not that Yamaha is a bad brand altogether, but on the GP circuit, its considered far inferior to the RCV211. The M1 was carbureted just a year ago for gods sake!

BUT on top of this seemingly insane move by Rossi, there are also quite a few interesting aspects of the coming 2004 Moto GP season...

- Hayden will win races
As an American, you have to be happy that we have a serious young American contending for the title. And its Nicky! Not some crybaby like Curtis Roberts), one of the coolest guys in racing!

- Edwards is on the Honda
The last time Edwards was on a Honda he rode one of the most spectacular races the world has witnessed. With Colin's cool, calculated approach, married with the RCV211, we are sure to see some winning ways from Edwards. Again, as an American, you have to be happy about this.

Sete will be Strong
Sete was a strong contender in 2003. With Rossi on the Yammi, you know he will be fighting for the lead.

The Ducati will be Strong
These guys got on the box all day and actually WON a race in their freshmen season of MotoGP. What will 2004 bring?!? Especially since they have probably the most determined rider in the padock, Mr. Bayliss himself! And no one is counting out Capparossi either!

Xaus will be crashing
You got to love watching Xaus, because more likely than not he is crashing. Xaus brings a certain paranoia to the whole race. The icing on the cake for what is shaping up to be one of the greatest Moto GP seasons ever!
