    My rookie of the year contenders-
    Nakagami in MotoGP. His smooth style and being heavily and openly favored by Honda. Being Crutchlow's teammate may put Takas' Spock-like coolness to the test.

    Romano Fenati in Moto2. His elbows out ride lines others won't riding coupled with his absolute hatred of losing will put him up at the pointy end of things.

    We never had one in the past, until last year. If the mods want to tag this thread no-spoilers, so be it. Be warned, however, that posting spoilers in this thread will subject you to endless whining and caterwauling.

    You posted a spoiler about the whining that is going to happen.

    Predictions:


    Each factory team will lose at least one rider at the end of this season.

    Binder will be Moto2 champ.

    Lorenzo will be MotoGP champ.

    Speaking of unlikely scenarios, Suppo rightly patted himself on the back for being a prime mover in Ducati entering MotoGP and in their move to Bridgestone in 2005.

    I'd rather see Pedrosa win it, but I'm thinking it will be JLo.

    2018 will most certainly be even more amazing than 2017. Bring it on!
