its not like she's a rookie in wss300. she had 3 years on a moto3 bike with a shit team. i think if they can sell jack miller's leap from moto3 to gp because he's aussie, im sure they can sell the first ever female champion to get on a 2nd tier motogp bike

No sale. She won a 4th? 5th? 6th? 17th tier title on a bike that for at least part of a season had technical advantages, meanwhile zooging around? Yeah, she won a championship, but let's not get swept up in the fact she did it without a penis. May the best racers race in MotoGP, and she just isn't that.

I've seen video of Anna on a Moto 2 bike. She is very fast. And to shortchange her accomplishment winning the 300SS title does her a disservice.

Of course she's fast- she's faster than me, faster than 99.9% of people who ride, but it's a relative world in which she races. Plenty of racers are fast on a Moto2 bike. Could she make the leap to Moto2, of course; the meatgrinder that is Moto2 welcomes everyone and spits out most. Good teams (and factories) see talent much better than I/you/we do. They have boots on the ground and know what makes a racer tick and how they perform. If she had or has any sort of premier class talent, the people in the know would jump on it. I have to think her gender would be exploited to the enth degree and the marketing hype train wouldn't stop. I'm sure those conversations have happened inside Dorna and with a few teams but somehow she hasn't been signed. So what does that tell me? Not much. There could be a host of factors preventing a bigger class signing. Hell, she could just be a turd of a person and failed the attitude test or have a crappy manager, etc. (I highly doubt it- but just examples). But a MotoGP overreaction after a ZOOG championship in an technically evolving WSS300 class is too a disservice. I *TRY* to view everything in context and not leap to what is an obviously conclusory overreaction.

Want a good indicator of what she is? Let's watch what happens this season.

There’s a long list of racers that were fast on Moto2 bikes that couldn’t make the leap to GP. Rabat has a Moto2 championship and is a punchline to a joke in GP. Luthi started every race and didn’t score a single point in his 2018 MotoGP effort.

Everyone who rode for MarcVDS in MotoGP looked bad on those bikes and did better elsewhere (except Redding). We know Miller and Rabat were better than the results they had at MarcVDS. We'll see how much MarcVDS was holding back Morbidelli this year. They can run good Moto3 and Moto2 teams but the MotoGP team never worked. Miller's win in the rain at Assen was a combination of luck, timing and a good ride by Miller.

Talent can be hard to judge. Its not a fixed attribute. Riders performance can get better or worse over just a season or two. Some recover from a bad season or bad team and others never do.

Its way too early to judge Carrasco's career or the careers of the top racers in SSP300. There are good riders in that class that don't have access to the money it takes to get a seat on a good Moto3 or Moto2 team. We all know there is more talent in than good seats and racers have to bring money to get good rides. Give it a few years and see what Anna Carrasco, Scott Deroue, Mika Pérez or Galang Hendra Pratama can do.

Such a better note, for sure. Now, can we get a V-2 for the next engine?
