@seeyadad How about 'Ducrapi' haha. I think that this paring could go quite well next year, but I think this 4 bikes per manufacturer thing sucks because there are going to be so many riders left without good bikes and be forced onto a CRT or a very second rate WSBK

I'm a huge Elbowz fan, and I can honestly see this as a 1 year, means-to-an-end with the Duc. Very interested to hear what he has to say about this in the coming days/weeks/months. He is surely linked and will lead the Zuk return in 2014. He said it himself...If he leaves GP, he most likely won't come back. And don't forget, he sought this 'opportunity' out...even if the Duc is a PITA to ride. Think about it...

Ben seems to be able to get the most out of bikes that are not perfect. I do seem to remember him winning the WSBK championship on a bike that his successors thought was a P.O.S.
