@ drifter


Most of the Italian media are now saying that it's Dovi who is likely to get Rossi's ride. His experience of the RCV and M1 together with the fact that he's Italian (i.e. perfect communication with the team) are apparently making him a more appealing prospect when it comes to bike development. Those inside Ducati who favour Cal are basing their choice on the wild hope that his riding style will gel with the bike, but that opinion is reportedly losing ground. Nothing decided yet AFAIK but an offer is now on the table to Dovi, so he's definitely a strong possibility for the ride.

Why waste the money? Vale was past his best when he left for Ducati.

Find something else to do before you further tarnish your reputation.

Moving back to Yahaha as #2 rider smacks of desparation in my book.

@ coookie

Zero chance that H.Barbera will be with Tech 3 for next year. Most likely it'll be CRT for Barbera. Tech 3 are talking to De Puniet for the ride alongside Smith.
