It is not clear which team is running him in the actual race though (even though signed to Tech 3 for next year), is the works team or Tech 3 handling it for Valencia!???

God, i'm not his big fan but after watching his video of his method conquering tracks he didn't even know, i started to like this guy very much.

when i saw this pic, OH MAN!!! can't get my eyes off of him... he's charming with his own charisma...

he will surely make motogp more colorful in yeears to come... :)

Well, call me the black sheep... but I think it looks ugly. I think it's because the R1 is so beautiful with that the Sterilgarda logo and color scheme that it just looks bulky on the M1. Not quite as ugly as the Monster Tech 3 bikes, though.

Anyone know why Ben switched back to 11? I was growing fond of the #19.

Jelly the bike is a Yamaha factory tester. His crew will be his WSBK team and Japanese Yamaha people.
Bets now on how many place he beats Toseland by ? :-o

@bliz

The number 11 was his old number in the AMA. He chose number 19 cuz Corser had 11 already in wsbk. Back to the "elbows" days.. Motogp watch out, this kid is really good!


Go Ben!
