This is probably Ducati's "most complete" line up in terms of rider talent ever. If none of these four guys can do anything on the Duc next season then they really need to cut their loses and focus on superbike.

I don't think many people realize that this is just a stop for Ben on the way back to a factory ride. For one thing it's only a one year contract plus the fact that Suzuki is coming back for 2014 means that if things don't go well next year he will probably still have options.And let's not forget that Ben is a true talent and he may just get results.Just my 2 cents.

So Spies gave up a full factory Yamaha for a non factory Ducati ? Crazy move.Ducati dont give their factory team regular upgrades so he's screwed.Must be a huge paycheck for him or perhaps he's just treading water until Suzuki make a comeback.Either way,things must have been seriously bad for him at Yamaha.Lets hope he gels with the Duke and does well on it.Cant see it but time will tell.
