Great news

To respond to Bruce in the NRL thread: it is probably the single hardest loss I have had to deal with at Souths to lose Bully. Much worse than Sam Burgess as he didn't symbolise Souths as Bully did. I think a lot will underestimate just how much a loss he will be to Souths but I fully understand how engrossed he is with NZ and I think given that he will make the successful transition that others haven't.

It's great for him to get such a promotion, although he's a day younger than me, makes me feel like ****! But no it's awesome to have an Aussie getting back up there in a decent team. However I'm not so certain if bypassing Moto2 will prove a good move.

It'll be good to have an Aussie on reasonably competitive bike in MOTO GP again. I think he could've benefited from a season in MOTO 2 though.

Agree. A year in moto 2 would have given him a firmer base. He now has to put in the yards needed to Akers it. Hope he goes well.

He won the last race but finished up 2nd for the season. Marquez's little brother ended up beating him.

I agree. As an Aussie, I support him, but as a character, I find him hard to actually like. Hopefully he can pull his head in a bit. He's quick, but if he continues on with the attitude he's got, he won't win many fans.

Wining races rather than fans leads to world championships, fairly certain that's what Jack cares about as priority.

Can't help but think of Stoner here.

All well and good, but what's wrong with winning both? Being a great racer and also not being a dick?

Then he becomes another corporate drone that smiles to the camera and only says nice things. I find that so boring.

Yeah the kid can be a bit outspoken or act a bit childish. But guess what? He's only 19. I love watching people like Jack and Casey, they are driven to succeed and tell it like it is. None of the sugar coating crap the majority seem to want.

Nothing wrong.
Making the point about priority only.

Plus another vote for letting each character loose without being filtered through the corporate marketing machine.

Must admit I'm glad he's not a corporate robot, but as for personality, I'm not a huge fan. He's an awesome rider though and it's a shame he didn't win the Moto3 title. He was definitely the best rider in the series.

How many world championship motorcycle racers have there been who have been both?

Fogarty, Lawson, Rainey, Gardner, Schwantz and Doohan etc.. never cracked a smile over 2nd place
