With less than an hour before the streets of my hometown erupt to the sound of fireworks, marking the end of 2009 and the start of 2010, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support for this year, and to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Thanks most of all to you, our loyal (and not so loyal) readers, for coming back time and time again, and for spreading the word on MotoMatters.com all this year. Your support and appreciation make all the hard work we put into this website worth it.
We wish everyone a happy, healthy and successful 2010, and we hope that every race of the 2010 season will be as thrilling as the Barcelona MotoGP race, or perhaps even the Sachsenring 2006 MotoGP race! May the riders walk away from every crash unscathed, and the team owners find willing and wealthy sponsors lining up to support them. Here's to a great year of racing.
