So, where is everybody going?

In the wake of yesterday's fiasco and Elias's win, rumors are rampant and others have inked deals already but what about the rest of the gang?

Repsol Honda
Nicky Hayden
Dani Pedrosa

Yamaha Factory
Valentino Rossi

Marlboro Ducati
Loris Cappirosi
Casey Stoner ----- Talk about punting a guy twice

Kawasaki Racing
??
??

Rizla Suzuki
John Hopkins ----- NOT 100% sure if he had a 2 yr contract!
Chris Vermulen ---- NOT 100% sure if he had a 2 yr contract!

Gressini/** Honda
Marco Melandri
Tony Elias ---- Talk about becoming a HOT commodity after 1 win!

LCR Honda
Carlos Checa
??

Team Roberts
KRJR
??

Konica Minolta Honda
Shinja Nakano ----- Not 100% comfirmed yet

Pramac D'antin Ducati
??
??

Tec3 Yamaha
??
??








Sete Gibernau -----Boy, when he gets dumpedm he gets the boot as well, huh! Where is he going? Kawasaki is the only logicall choice but, does he wants to? Can they afford him?
Colin Edwards -----Alledgedly, his back with Vale as his teammate but so far, nothing has been comfirmed.
Makoto Tamada -----Nothing from him either but there's Rumors that Sito Pons is coming back in Full Force and with Bridgeston tires so... he's a shoe in
Randy De Puniet -----Maybe staying with Kawi but I don't know. Did he inked a 2 yr contract?
Jose Luis Cardoso -----Nothing heard, he's better off looking for a bench somewhere else cos he's getting nowhere fast on them 2nd hand duckys
Alex Hoffman -----Shades of glory in 250's but nothing so far on motoGP. I guess he is at least riding for a paycheck. with D'antin
James Ellison -----I feel sorry for the kid but he's better off looking somewhere else for a better ride.

Telefonica Moviestar is said to return to MotoGP now that they lost Alonso to McClaren Mercedes. Could they may want to pick up Gibbers & Makoto on Pons Honda's & Bridgestone? WOW, ho could would that be huh!

Camel has not re-signed with Yamaha but I don't see Moviestar inking a deal with Yamaha anytime soon.

?? = Not comfirmed or Not announced

** = Pulling out or Not comfirmed


Can you tell that I was extremely bored and there's nothing to watch on TV or better to do? No? well... is true!

Don't forget about the 250 guys that may be hopping on a GP bike.

Have not heard of anybody from 250 coming up the ranks but, yes, it could happen. I was moe concerned of where the regulars will end up.

Yes, I had forgotten about the Ilmor and McCoy but this forum doesn't let you Edit your own post so I can't get to it and fix my small error...

Looks like Stoner signed with Ducati. During the last race, there were talks of wild man De Anglis coming up. He has no fear on a 250 and will try overly aggressive passes... Can't imagine him on a GP bike.
