I'm surprised i thought he would of stayed where he was in Moto2 with the same team for 2011 but still it would be good to see Pedercini have a decent rider for once, but i'm expecting the worse for Rolfo with this teams track record.

Good news. Rolfo sees the light. Staying in Moto2 with an underfunded and inexperienced team will not result in a "good" motogp ride anytime soon and he isn't getting any younger. This is possibly the first time he's going to have a decent ride because the previous ones weren't good except for the Ten Kate but as we all know the honda works for some while at the same time a disaster for others.

I almost said 'my condolences Robbie' til I remembered even Pedercini will have the new ZX10. Whether they can hack the set-up work is a bit of an open question tho.

They were a long way off Birdies mob this season.
Against that Birdie had the riders.

I dont know, Im still thinkin this kawi's gonna be a career killer. Every time they have an update its all the buzz till race time, when it usually disapoints and ends careers. Good luck either way Robbie!

hmmmmm.

I would have thought Rolfo would be in Moto2 in 2011. But I do know that most Moto2 riders don't get paid unless they have a personal sponsor and most have to bring sponsor dollars.

Unless Pedercini gets the support from the factory it matters not if they have the new ZX10. They would have had better results in 2010 if they had better support. If they are going to be a strictly privateer effort like they were this past year than the results won't improve all that much.

Riding an unproven bike for a team proven to be fatally underfunded and under-supported. I can appreciate Robbie's optimism and positive outlook, but it's a bit of a stretch in this scenario.
