She's 11th in the Spanish Championship, but not in the Moto2 category, but in the Stock Extreme one (roughly equivalent to SBK). Last year she was 8th in the same category.

I really really hope she does well, but a rider coming 11th in a domestic championship being thrown into the bearpit of Moto2? She's going to be hung out to dry - this could be the worst thing possible for her career. My only hope is that that wily old fox Aspar knows something I don't and is not just going for a bit of publicity.

I don't have a problem with her racing in place of Simon. All the best for her.
@ fan,you beat me to it. Simonchelli must be wincing at the thought,but as RawDawg points out, where the hell is he in the Championship on the FACTORY Honda ?

Because Paul Denning can't be trusted, he talks out of his butt and runs his team like an idiot. Elana Myers was the girl and she just finished 3rd and 5th in AMA supersport at barber last weekend.Denning offered the ride to her then when it came time to do it he backed out. Denning=Weasel.

The Suzuki rider referred to IS Elena Meyers. She was just making an appearance as a rising Suzuki star, not as a potential Suzuki GP rider. While she is talented, she's not ready for the world stage yet.

And I refuse to comment on whether she's hot. She's only 16, and I'm not a complete pervert. When she's 18, I may start clamoring for her to pose next to her ride dressed like a brolly girl, but for now she's just a sweetheart of a kid who's got more skills in her pinky finger than each and every guy on Crash.net.
