Paul Bird Motorsport has played down rumours that Shane Byrne will replace James Ellison for the upcoming MotoGP races.

WTF bird openly states live on TV he's replacing Elison with Shakey now he's playing down rumours!

It's maybe me being out of touch, but with no real testing pre-season by the team, and in the second race of the season Ellison on for a points finish before retiring, isn't this a bit premature.Sure get a second opinion, but Ellison needs time. Look what he did for SMT at the end of last year. Everything seems to have to be instant these days. Media and the instant access now provided by twitter and such things, allows spur of the moment comments to take on a life instantly, without due and proper consideration. Is anything truely infomative posted on twitter or are we just a sound bit , quick fix culture. Make the bikes fast, slow down the media out put. Rant over!

@BILL : No chance , this is just a ploy to gain time for Shakey to sort out contractual difficulty's for his permanent replacement of Ellison , i am afraid you have been Tango-ed by wishful thinking.

accordig to reports Shane Bryne AND Stuart Easton have been named as test riders for the PBM team.

This means that they have Bridgestone tyres allocated to them so testing can be done. Negating the need for rider replacement at a race.

Either DORNA or PBM stumped up the cash to get this done

One can hope that this was the result from the negative backlask in respect of the team owners indelicate comments at Oulton Park...
