Born: 18/2/78

2005 finish: 16th
The honour of being 2004's MotoGP rookie of the year seemed to weigh heavily on the shoulders of Ruben Xaus as he had a year to forget in 2005.

A podium place in Qatar near the end of 2004 gave him something to build on but the Spaniard failed to finish higher than 10th in any races this year.

Riding for Yamaha satellite team Tech 3, he only failed to score points in three races.

But coming five places below his 2004 standings finish summed up a bad year.
