Kagayama is imposed by Suzuki, like Fujiwara at Kawasaki, like Aoyama was at Honda...
As to the choice of Neukirchner by preference to Nieto, it's normal in terms of 2008 performance and margin for improvement, and in terms of motivation too. Kagayama will shine and crash, and Neukirchner will fight for the title.

Finally, as Nieto has wealthy sponsors, it might be a very clever move from Batta, who might end up selling one of his WSB packages (like the Celani-Muggeridge one) to Nieto instead of paying him to ride a full factory K9 !

Very good move I think :)

Poor Fonsi, what an awful thing to happen :-(. I hope he finds a great ride for next year, I believe in him and his talent and I think people forget that he was a race winner and on the podium a few times in 2008! I wish him lots of luck for '09.

Kagayama is past his best, but still better than silver spoon Fonsi. I'm sick of silver spoon riders with personal backers and the right nationality, ie... Rolfo, Fra****sio, etc!
