WSBK » Edwards, Capirossi plotting Superbike move?

The two-time WSBK champion singles out BMW, but insists it isn't his only option, while Capirossi is believed to be choosing between Ducati and retirement.

Colin still has tons of fight left in him and would definately shape in WSBK Loris on the other hand has not really done much in the last few years on any bike , never mind that Ducati heap , and as much as he was a hero I think he's destined for a rider/team manager position or nothing

I would not write off Capirossi so early...yes, his best years are probably behind him but we thought the same about Checa. I think Capirex has a lot more to prove than CE and if he will get on with the bike well, he will show it. For BMW Edwards is the best target possible, for Ducati I am not sure. They have already a competitive rider with Checa, I would look for a young gun to test next year. However Capirex was always better than Checa. I am curious if Aprilia has also an eye on Loris as Max retires at the end of next year and they need an experienced, proven GP-rider. Somehow I think Melandri by Aprilia is not an option, but it would be Senna-Prost in the same team 2 decades ago. :)

MotoGP would be poorer without Colin. Even on a non-factory bike with a satellite team he has still been getting better than expected results . He doesn't need to go to WSB - he's been Champ twice and has nothing to prove there. His handicap is that he is not better known in USA, otherwise he would have a very active and lucrative reirement there.
Loris has been a hero for so long, but it is embarrassing to see him so low down the field. His accumulation of injuries must be a strong incentive to just retire with reputation intact.

I hope they go because..MotoGP is not the elite class anymore. I canceled my cable tv subscription because the motogp races were so stupid. I did.

MotoGP: The 5 reason of failure & loosing its popularity
1.Much Pressure on every rider in every weekend throughout the season to starts from pole and to end with podium in the race.
2.Using prototype 800cc version of bike which was too costier to manufacture.
3.Using too much costier version of Bridgestone tyres.
4.Failure season of Rizla Suzuki and Ducati.
5.Team didn't able to manage the financial resource to improve their bike for giving tough fight to others and to bond with good riders,this lead to end of team Kawasaki in 2009 and now a big team Rizla Suzuki who didn't able to manufacture GSV R(1000cc)for 2012.SO THOSE WHO SEE MOTOGP ARE WASTING THEIR PRECIOUS TIME AND CABLE BILL.Always see BSB(34 riders on the grid) WSBK(more than 20) MotoGP 2011(17 riders) SUCK MOTOGP.
