I believe Bartholemy is right.Redding is no doubt a contender and Kallio is way,way underestimated.
GP renegade,expelled to Moto2.Youth to Redding and experience in GP to Kallio.Fully fit,Kallio may well do an Elias.Motivation? Well,thats the issue.

Michael Bartholemy

Is now the manager of Scott. I just hope he (scott) can build on the end of season results as it took him a while too to get into the points positions.

He's got loads of natural talent but his intension span is way to short. Work hard Scott you can do it.

Yes, Bill, it took Scott a while to become competitive in 2010, but that was largely due to a Suter chassis that wasn't working for him. As soon as they ditched it for a new one he was on the pace.

I looks like they've learned from that and are already getting the package dead right for him in 2011.

Bill, yes still Suter. Last year's fix was in response to a need to stiffen up the chassis. For 2011, I think they're working to accommodate his large frame better on the bike and give better traction from the rear.
