I just don't get Lanzi, he either wins or comes nowhere. In his first half season, he came in and just won everything Spies style but then comes nowhere in the full season on the best bike, then wins on a second rate satellite team etc etc Is he unfit or something?

I really like Lorenzo and it was great to see him back at his aggresive best. I first saw him as a Wildcard in British Superstock at Silverstonein 2003 where he smoked the field on a surposedly uncompetitive Ducati.

He was on fire at the end of the 2004 season when he subbed for Laconi on Xerox Ducati in Germany and won one race. He also won at Mangy-Cours on his private Ducati. This was enough to earn him the factory ride at Xerox in 2005 but unfortunately his father (who was his inspiration to race) died in the closed season and that really hit him hard and it I think really knocked his motivation. He's struggled a bit since that, but is still only 28 so hopefully can turn his career around.
