 They were the only ones to submit a tender!! Not only is there no competition due to the one tyre supplier rule there was not even any competition in the tender process!! Ummm something is not quite right here I feel.. You cannot have competition on the track when there is no ompetition off the track.. The one tyre supplier rule has now been put to bed.. Open tyre competition will prevail

It's simply up to all the teams to get together and say no to Michelin and then Dorna will have to climb down and open up tyres to competition again.

"Michelin clinches MotoGP tyre deal"? You make it sound like there was fierce bidding. Why would anyone want to bid for this? Let each team choose whatever tyres they want.

been on the crysal meth again Huw?

 Only a monosyllibic cretin like you could possibly turn a story about tyre suppliers into a character assassination of Cal Crutchlow,Your very unwell you pea brained half wit ,tell me Huw why do supermarkets provide mobility scooters for big fat stinking shoppers who manage to get to the store perfectly well in a taxi and wobble into the store and stuff their scooter baskets full of biscuits ice cream crisps and chocolate, why do you do that ?,does that accout for your obsession with swine?,if you recall the films Hannibal and good old brick top in Snatch may i suggest a similar use for pigs for Huw ?,"hence the saying as greedy as a pig ",a classic film only bettered by your portrayal of Emile in the "outlaw Josey Wales" and your all time best performance ,playing yourself the hillbilly in "Deliverance" ,"squeal piggy squeal" legendary Huw,Now back to the tyre situation ,what to do with all the unused Bridgestones,may I suggest a "Necklace" for Huw ,:lol:

Maybe

 just maybe the bikes now are out performing the tyres and bridgestone know they cant produce a tyre that can cope with the excessive forces that a modern moto gp bike produces. This is also the reason the only company that could come close, Pirelli, just did not bother. I mean what other top flight series does Michelin supply?
