2014 MotoGP Season**spoiler alert**

Its that time again boys and girls...

MotoGP 2014 season is about to begin. The first Sepang testing is about start. Although it doesn't have the same anticipation as last year's Rossi home coming, but there are plenty of things to look for.

I really wonder how Cal will do on the Duc. Will Gigi finally tame the red beast? Or will it be another two years in the wilderness for Cal?

Will "The Kid" dominate and be the first to repeat since Rossi?

Will Rossi shows that he still got it?

This is a contract year for most riders. I really believe this is the last shot for Fro'drosa for a championship run. I really don't see him on a Repsol next year. I'm really interested to see who's Honda will go after to go along side Marquez. Will they try to form the Evil Empire of Marquez and Lorenzo??

Above all, I'm just hoping for an exciting racing year.

I'm also interested in seeing Josh Herrin from AMA on Moto2. There's not too many "Yanks" left in the international racing scene. I'm hoping he doesn't get swallow up by all the talents in the very competitive Moto2.

I'm thinkin Rossi puts up a much better battle than last year. Maybe another win or two for the year with more seat time back on Lorenzo's yam, but I still think it'll be a championship battle between MM and Jorge again.

Don't rule out the midget too. It's his final year (most likely) on the factory Honda, and it's his last chance to prove to everyone he's not just a bridesmaid.

As far as I'm concerned, he's not championship material

I cant get past Marquez and Lorenzo in that order being chased by Pedrosa smith, Crutchlow and Rossi, then I recon you can perm the rest of the field..

I do think this may unfortunately be Rossi's last year as I don't believe he will have a factory ride at the end of the year

Cal better do good on the Duc! I don't see him finishing better than 8th-10th though unless some huge changes were made in the off season. Really keep to see how the new open bikes compete with the Ducatis

Rossi will continue to fade, Jorge comes back and wins it again with Marquez 2nd. Another great year that ultimately falls short for arguably the best rider ever to not win a championship in Pedrosa.

I think you guys are looking past the rookies coming from Moto 2, I think Pol Espargaro and Scott Redding will do very well. I think Redding will be the top Brit, just don't think Bradley has it in him, I also think Espargaro will do better than him on the same bike. Scott Redding on the production honda will be quicker than Crutchlow on the factory Ducati.

I hate to say it but i think MM will repeat this year and Rossi and Jlo will all be close behind him. I think the midget has lost his mojo and will have hard time getting on the podium.

I'd like to see Josh Herrin do well in Moto 2 but I think the learning curve to guys like Tito Rabbat, Mika Khalio and Jordi Tores is just to far, plus it seems like you can't win in that class unless you are on a Suter or Kalex, not sure how the Caterham bike will do.

Yeah, I am interested to see what Josh Herring can do, hope the package and bike he has holds up. Lets also not forget Sam Lowes in Moto2, current reigning world supersport champ. He is not afraid of a little fairing bashing

I agree, Sam Lowes is a stud and I think he's going to give them hell.... If he can stay healthy, he already crashed and broke his collar bone during testing in Nov. Again unless you are on a Kalex and maybe a Suter it looks tough to win.
