The team have spent all there money on NH so they have to give poor DL a naff old team shirt that has been washed with the darks to turn the white areas grey :-o

Wonder if Rob Mac is going to poach some of GSE racings tech guys to help sort the chassis setup problems they had last year, wonder how Hodgsons shoulder will cope with the very muscular riding style needed on the Yam?

I'd not be overly sure about any team that in the face of below par results seems to adamantly refuse to listen to its riders.

No quarrel with Dan and I'd like to see Hodgson make a good comeback but I can't help thinking they could both be fighting up hill on the evidence of last season.

The team may have learnt but I won't hold my breath waiting to see it.

I think this team turned a corner when Ellison tested the bike its a shame they couldn't sign Ellison, I would think it would be in Yamaha's interest to help with factory parts. But the big issue has to be Hodgsons shoulder he still isn't able to do weight training, but saying that if his shoulder is ok he will fly.

Just as a side comment, not being able to lift weights doesn't always translate to not being able to hold onto the bike.

Lifting weights requires mobility and strength, with holding onto the bike it's more static strength.
I hurt my rotator cuff and couldn't do certain movements for months, but I could still race motocross and do trackdays.
Same as when I pulled my bicep lifting the bloody trailer out of the garage the night before a day at Rockingham...

Couldn't lift anything but could ride fine!
These superbike riders are superhumans, Neil'll be fine.!
