It is all about big names and the money that comes with them these days.
I am sure if Edwards went back to wsbk he would do Very well, but saying that he is still doing well in MotoGP.
Would love to see what Capirossi could do in wsbk,
But it is early days and lets all wait and see what happens towards end of the season?

The best bet is ducati then kawasaki and last yamaha if they decide to run a one man team for him.

BMW and Suzuki? Stay away as far as possible from those 2.

Why Colin? He is still best of the rest. Someone should beat him before he moves to the WSBK. There are 8 guys on the GP grid that need to move to WSBK before Colin does. Young guns, my arshe. Tech 3, put your ****e together and bring back the MAN

Please when you the BMW its not good enough for the likes of....

Dont mention Haslam in the same sentance as Edwards and Capirossi, where in the world do you justify him as an equal to them or what they have achived its a rediculas thing to say. The BMW seems good enough for Badovini, basically a superstock rider and there fore a rookie would you consider him as an equal to them?

I think riders like Capirossi and especially Edwards would put it on the box but lets face it he's earned the chance for a top ride to be winning evey week dont you think.

Capirossi! Regardless of what poor performance he has, he always gets another chance. Why? He said he would never go to WSB because it's a lesser category, now he can be on the best bike!
Unlike him, I would love to see Edwards in WSB, but definitely not with BMW. He deserves the Ducati, not like Capirossi, one of the best satellite riders in MotoGP every year, a lot of podiums with the Tech 3 bike. He should be on the Ducati, and Capirossi should retire. If not Edwards, Johnny Rea, Badovini, Haslam or somebody like them, but please not someone who only wants it because not finding a place in GPs.

A lot of people out there saying they don't want Edwards or Capirossi to go to BMW because they don't think the bike is good enough. Well the bike is in front of Suzuki, Kawasaki & Honda & that's with all their years of experience in racing. Anyway when was the last time Edwards or Capirossi won anything? As far as I can tell they've just been riding round & making the numbers up.

I have always been a fan of tornado, if he should go to bmw dont forget that he wont be fighting for race wins,he will be well paid riding a bike that is getting no better than when it first appeared.He really wants a slower life from next year and the bm is the bike to tour round on.
