You just knew something like this was going to happen sooner or later. He has had so much bad luck this year it is beyond comprehension. Call it Kismet, luck Karma fate whatever. The stars have just not aligned for him this year. I think Rossi did a Sete Gibernau voodoo dance on him! Best to get off that dreaded Yamaha ASAP!

All my best Ben for the Future Ben!

@ give cal the bike for the last two rounds and lets see if he can handle a factory ride and trouble the front two.

He cannot "trouble" his teammate on the same equipment so I highly doubt that he would "trouble" the front group.

If anything, give the factory seat to Dovi and let Hayes run the Tech 3 bike.

@ Killakaw4life

Don't think Josh Hayes would be allowed too ride the Factory Yamaha anyway. The rookie rule is still in this season, so he'd have to go to tech 3 and a tech 3 rider to Yamaha
