I don't really understand it... Pedercini dropped Aitcho who was stellar on the ZX10...

Salom seems to be having dejavous of Kenan's flirtation with SBK. What makes them think he'll be any good in MotoGP?

Although, I guess, it's not like he's on a REAL GP bike ANYWAY!!!

@bittnutter so what if Spain spends all their tax payers money in motor racing plus all the money they can get from the European Central Bank? It's their own business how they run their economy end of story.

Its funny how nobody moans when their are loads of British riders in a series, like WSB! It has done nothing for its popularity in this country. Potentially 4 British riders in Motogp next year as well, would sooner see multi nation. At the end of the day its a Spanish team who would also love to have a Spanish bike according to Avintia, hasn't Paul Bird said he will field 2 British riders next year?
Sad for Ivan but he hasn't done much and you need fast riders to develope a bike, it needs to be pushed. However, whether Salom is that man is questionable, but he is a friend of Lorenzo.

Being a bit harsh on Mr Salom... hardly been on a competitive ride. Nothing against Pedercini, but it is what it is. Salom when in WSS last year on a factory Kawasaki he did pretty well. In fact he was the top qualifying kwaka at the end of the year. Admittedly atcho last year looked to have a better fist of it, but he also had his fair share of spills, having to over ride the bike to get it up there. I would say it has probably been the same for Salom.

He was first choice to take lascorz ride after he was injured but knocked it back wanting to stay loyal to Pedercini. Obviously the Pedercini Kawasaki is going no where, certainly not the missle that Sykes has or Baz is doing doing extremely well on. Good luck to him
