Just hit me that motogp has really entered a new era. Only 990cc riders left are Edwards, Rossi, Hayden, Stoner and Pedrosa. Last two were only rookies then and are now the old men of motogp. How the times change...

You forgot about Randy de puniet. Anyhow, 4 of these riders make up 4 of the 6 factory bikes. So I'd say times haven't changed much at all.
