and what is little known is that West's manager was approached by Yamaha and offered Crutchlows ride last year and rejected it without West's knowledge - something about the amount of $ Yamaha wanted to release West from his contract to go ride the Kwaka in MotoGP(onya Harris). The first West knew of it was when approached by some of the Yam guys at the first test at the end of the 2008 season as to why he had rejected the ride. Needless to say the manager was immediately sacked. What might have been ???

'Having dropped off the battle for second in the early stages when he got caught by Eugene Laverty'

Slammy - no surprise in Stiggy signing Hopper as he brought most of the sponsorship to the team, however it has been reported that Stiggy are trying to sign Crutchlow - presumably to replace Hopper and may switch to Yamaha next season.
