Sorry to hear we will not be able to see this legend racing again but I have looked on another site that states his time was on race tyres and Fabrizio and haga was on qualifier tyres. Makes the current Ducati factory rides look average and that hurts to say about Haga?

This guy is pure CLASS, such a shame not to see him come back, he has given the sport so many good memories. but you have to respect his decision

and to be kicking the factory riders ****'s like that is embarassing, i know bayliss has been doing bits of racing hear and there but he wont be as race fit as haga and fabrizio so to be beating them both at testing just shows you how good this guy is

if he came back to wsb he would be right up there

Nori needs to get back on that Yam or take a Suzuki ride if it's offered to him.
As for Fabrizio, he might still be young but this is his 4th year on the bike isn't it? I think he's had plenty of chances to prove himself worthy and so far he has failed. I can see a whole new line up on the cards next year

To be fair to the factory riders, i think the duke has struggled most of the year getting pace from the qualifying tyre anyway.
I'm a huge Nori fan, but to be honest he's not as exciting on the ducati as he was on the yamaha.

Jimmy, i honestly believe that if you have had three years on that bike (as he did last year) then you should at least be beating your team mate. He didn't last year and i don't think he will this year. The first target for any rider is to beat the guy who is on the same bike as you.
I'm not flaming him or your opinion of how he has done, i just think that the Xerox team expect more of their riders...and tbh the sponsors expect more of that bike which is why there is talk of them not being the team sponsor for next year. :)
