James Toseland’s crew chief to move to Moto2

The departure of James Toseland from MotoGP has proved costly for the crew chief at the centre of a bust-up between the British rider and Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team-mate Colin Edwards last winter. Gary Reynders, who left Texan Edwards at the end of the 2008 MotoGP world championship to make a controversial switch to work with Toseland, will move to...

How quick things can Change

I think Toesland shot himself in his own foot really when he stole Edwards Crew Chief. Its funny how in his first year he had some fo his best races and most consistante finishes. Remember thou he was still talking with Edwards and getting alot of sound advice and tips but all of a sudden when they fell out at christmas his second season went drastically down hill! Maybe if James had just accepted things on his side of the garage then he'd still have another ride with Tech 3 this year? You cant blame edwards neither because he's a top bloke as he's even offered to help Spies in the same way knowing that he is an even bigger threat to him than Toesland ever was and could of been!

So the crew chief switch backfired badly on Gary Reynders as well as Toseland it seems.

Serves them both right.

Get it right.....

More ill informed drivel guys..... Toseland did not steal Edward's crew chief.  It was Yamaha who instigated the whole change and poor old JT got it in the neck from both Edwards and a million other nonces!  No wonder he under-performed this year with all of that to contend with.  Best of luck to him in WSB I say.

I think dickthebuttcockscruttock is the one who needs to get it right, to quote tech3 boss,  Herve Poncheral ''James got the crew chief & the tyres he wanted''

I have no idea where you have been hiding this year but i saw an interview with Toseland where he agreed that he & Reynders openly discussed the switch before the Tech3 boss got involved and Toseland is on record as saying there were ''communication problems'' with Guy Coulon his 2008 crew chief who Colin Edwards has since described as a genius.

Dont paint Toseland to be all inocent in all this as most certainly is not.

Serves 'em right

It seems the comunication problem last year wasn't Guys ears but JTs mouth. Look how well Colin has gone this year and how bad JT went without advice from Edwards as silky600 rightly pointed out. As for Reynders, think he was after the glory that Toseland breify basked in in his first year with tech3. Well done Colin and Guy, the other two?  Serves 'em right.
