yes , im french there is a rumor about fabrizio just make the deal with Alstare yesterday night after the superpole

Sylvain did a great race , i never saw him so " agressive " during a race

and the ride trough in first race is just a shame ...

also sylvain is talking with pedercini ... thats just a shame the 7th of the WSBK and 2nd Rookie is just talking with Pedercini after a good " studing " year ...

Is it confirmed that Fabrizio is going to Alstare? I heard that the WSBK management were greasing palms so he can get a ride next year.
Maybe Guinters was out to show who's boss today.

Too bad for Guintoli on missing the podium and loosing his ride to Fabrizio. He'll get a ride for next season in WSB, he's had most of a year off through injury then he's had to learn a load of new tracks and he has put in a good effort, still being relatively new to superbikes and all I don't think there too much reason to be disappointed. He has bested more experienced riders.

Lets hope Sylvain gets a good ride next season as he deserves it. Today's ride through was a total travesty as he gained no advantage.. d1ckheads who made the call.. watch the race and read the rules.. he gained no advantage.. I hope you get sorted mate, you deserve it our honoury Brit.

It's a shame that he's lost his ride to Fabrizio.

I think his options now are:
Althea Racing
Pedercini
Worx Cresent(BSB)
Kawasaki Provec(WSS)
Ten Kate(WSS)
ParkinGo Triumph(WSS)

Hope he goes to Althea, they seem like a capable team. I just hope he gets a good ride somewhere, he's a great rider and funny in interviews.

I've watched Guintoli's incident a couple of times in slow-mo and there is no way he could have done anything other than what he did. He lost a position as he tried to collect the bike, and to get to the "marked area" he would have had to crank it over hard on a patch of grass. In all likelihood that would have resulted in him crashing and possibly taking out the riders behind him. Whoever made the decision to give him a ride-through presumably is a bureaucrat that has never ridden a bike. A truly dumb decision that took away a potentially excellent result for Sylvain. I hope he can find a decent ride for 2011.
