Just when the game of MotoGP musical chairs appeared over some surprise new twists unfolded last week that leave some players still unseated for 2006.
Australiaís Casey Stoner (Kurri Kurri, NSW) had been expected to race with the Sito Pons managed Honda Pons squad for 2006 and recently completed two full tests with the team but sponsor problems at Honda Pons seems to have scuttled that plan.
The Pons squad was expected to run again with Camel backing in 2006 but the tobacco giant is taking itís money elsewhere in the hope of finding the as yet unsigned Max Biaggi a ride next year. Biaggi failed to impress while racing in the spearhead Repsol HRC team this season and it seems Honda is unwilling to provide him a machine for 2006. The Italianís last hope seems to be the possible chance of Team Kawasaki fielding a third bike with the help of Camel money to secure the four-times 250cc World Champion a 2006 MotoGP berth but that option also now seems increasingly unlikely.
Another top veteran yet to be confirmed for MotoGP is Brazilís Alex Barros. The most experienced GP rider in history has reportedly been seen testing with the Ten Kate Honda World Superbike squad and it looks likely that after more than 250 Grand Prix races his time in the premier series may have come to an end.
For Stoner however things have settled and after the Pons deal fell through he signed with long term boss Lucio Cecchinello with Honda agreeing to supply the partnership with an RC211V to enable them to step up into the premier MotoGP category.

Early days yet, but...
Biaggi doesn't have a ride, Barros is prob. in getting a hip replacement and Gibblet wouldn't be out of the mental ward from last years beating

don't be too quick to judge
I wanna see Pedro in the pack in turn one. My boy haydon has allways been quick but it has taken him the best part of 2 seasons to consistantly be at the front. We'll see.
Rossi ...mmmmh The only place to go when you're at the top is????.
He's been world champion so many times now and has kicked everybody arse this year on a slower bike I think he's proved his point
Last time he tested F1 at the Ferrari test track he was less than 1 second slower than Schummi's best ever lap there and you have to take your hat off to that.
I'm not a big Rossi fan but would like to see him stay with bikes and maybe do '07 on a duke then bugger off to cars.
No Baggi, Barros and Gibblet testing !!!!!!!!!

Roll up, roll up
Best result there has to Hopper riding the nail Ellison also looking good Would be nice to see a brit or even half a brit doing reasonably well for a change.
Back to reality, Pedrosa has to be a serious challenge but still think Rossi will be hard to beat.

For the record I would just like to point out that I ....... Legend ..... made the Ledgendary prediction the Pedrosa would be the big thing this season ......
And ... I did this against Arm Chair General Number One ..... (Big Phil) arrrruffffff !!!!
Now then ..... Rossi was 'reported' to be going to F1 possibly in 2007 ... however, Pedophil will give him such a run for his money in 2006 that all past records will be broken and most will review their view that Rossi is as much of a Legend as me ....
So ... all his past glories will be tainted ... and he will have to come back again in 07 just to make a point ... owww ... we are in for a great season or two .. or three :-)
