According to MCN there was no mutual consent at all with regards to McCoy. In fact it seems he has been treated rather poorly by the team when it came round to re-signing.

Shocked to hear that McCoy doesn't have the ride, i guess Di Salve bought money to the team.
I think Chaz would have benefitted from having the Aussie as a team mate. Tough on McCoy being so close to the start of the season, to then find out he hasn't got a ride.

No DiSalvo didn't bring any money. On mottomatters he says he turn down every ride that he had to bring money to and this was the only ride that he didn't have to bring any money. And it also says that the split wasn't mutual between McCoy and the team and that McCoy was actually shocked. They also had some quotes from his website.

On Roadracing World site there is a press release from McCoy where he is "shocked". I wonder what the inside story is.

They also have DiSalvo quotes from a phone interview where he states Triumph gave him a surprise call very recently.

W T F. Gary Mccoy is a legend, Jason Disalvo is a mid pack AMA rider. What are Triumph thinking. I thought Gary & Chas would have been F****** awesome. :?

ummmm, have you even watched AMA? Between DiSalvo and Davies it's Davies whos the "mid pack" AMA rider.

I hate to interrupt your rant but Davies hasn't shown to better than DiSalvo at no point so that's the rider you should be slagging off. DiSalvo finish 3rd in AMA Superbike in 08 behind Spies and Mladin. Davies won the FX Daytona 200 which was gifted to him by a DQ of Josh Hayes. But that was it. Davies hasn't done anything in AMA to say that he is better than DiSalvo.
