Should have stuck with their original line-up, Chaz has proved he's a front runner, even on tracks he doesn't know and Garry was a good choice because of his experience with the bike and the team.

Maybe Gary McCoy will be back as he has split from the FB Corse motogp project.Perhaps it's time for Triumph World Supersport team to eat humble pie and invite him back.What a team Gary and Chaz

Classic American,quit when things don't go your way.

They don't have the "never say die" attitude of the European or Austrailian racers.


Stick to racing Buells in the AMA. :D :D :D

Bunch of Italian toss3rs.

if they hadnt sh1t on Garry McCoy Triumph would have racked up some wins this season.

As Garry has parted company with FB Corse does this mean the other Wops have begged him to come back??

You people can't see the writing. McCoy and FB part and soon after Jason steps down. I've been watching DiSalvo race AMA for years. He's a Champion rider that needed this seat to step up. I wouldn't place the blame on lack of effort, but if your teammates have bikes that are clearly up on speed by 10mph you aren't going to get the results needed to "feel" like the racer you really are. Put him on a R6 and his results would be much better. Winning better, probably not since he's a rookie in the series, but better than where he is currently. McCoy will come over and race around in the top 10 for the rest of the season perfectly content with life.

@Kev46 - :? :?

While I'm certainly no fan of DiSalvo and could care less if he ever gets another ride in any series you seem to have a very short memory.

Don't you remember Euro Charpentier quitting after one race???

and as for your Aussie never say die attitude, didn't Stoner skip 3 very important races to slink back home with his tale between his legs last year??

I think a better example of not giving up when things aren't going your way would be Hayden - but since he's an American that wouldn't help your theory. :rolleyes:

I love how one Rider represents an entire nation now. That being said the Current Crop of American riders in WSBK/WSS are not the creme of the crop from AMA. Disalvo is a mid pack rider with a few wins to his name. We need to see people like Josh Hayes and Jamie Hacking in WSBK/WSS they are our current best riders not already on the World Level.

The only thing "classic" Kev46 is your baseless and bias comment - "classic" Crash at it's best.

I've never been a DiSalvo fan but if ParkinGO can't run 4 bikes at the same level than I see no fault in him leaving. The Triumphs are already not the fastest bikes and if they can't give him one that is at least as fast as his teammates than that's on the team. DiSalvo is 5'3 so he's small not a big guy. If the bike is consistently that much slower than his teammates than it's a problem with the bike. After the Miller race, I bet it confirmed to him it was the bike and not him on new tracks.

Kev46,
I cannot tell from your comments whether you are a Brit or an Aussie...

But if the Americans were really quitters, you would either be speaking German or Japanese right now...
