WSBK » Rea: My wife wouldn’t speak to me if I won title here


taliz: His talent is actually too good for WSBK. he should have a factory ride in MotoGP..
Unfortunately for him, I don't see any MotoGP teams looking for a 28-yr old to sign up. Too many fast kids coming through. I see JR re-signing for Kawasaki next year and probably seeing out his career on superbikes. Honda can take the blame for keeping him on the Fireblade all that time with false promises of a GP chance. He could probably have been a strong GP runner for them but he was the only one making them look respectable in WSBK at the time, which is why he was baited into staying there.

MotoGP » Smith: My enthusiasm for 2016 deal more than Yamaha’s


Not forgetting that Tech 3 is supposed to be a 'feeder' team for the factory outfit, taking in new riders and prepping them for full factory status. It hasn't always worked out that way, but that's their role according to Poncharal himself. It was never supposed to be a long-term home for riders who are not progressing to factory status. Given the amount of talent coming through from the smaller classes, it's not too surprising that Yamaha is taking time to consider its options.
