"...no news on continued WSBK support for Alstare."??? There's a full interview with Batta in the latest issue of Cycle News, an American publication, stating that Suzuki pulled it's support of Alstare, and therefore Alstare is leaving WSB. They've already released most of the team. Alan Cathcart did the interview. Seems fully reliable.

Damn...All i can say is Suzuki r some cold M'fackers.Paul Denning must really like their product to show them all this love. Batta did the right thing after all the half ass treatment he got from them. Some ppl wonder why Ducati keeps winning,cause they got passion with balls to go against these tight ass Japaness giants.

I truly don't understand Batta's loyalty? In an interview, stating they would rather withdraw than run other machinery??? After Suzuki basically gave him the finger?

Oh well, they're a team that will be missed.

@Nick636

Maybe Suzuki puts love spells on both their teams & riders. I mean look at the loyalty by Hooper & Bautista,Bautista broke the spell though..He he

Would like to see Josh Waters get the 2nd bike. He had some good perfomances for Yoshimura suzuki wildcarding this year, and been strong locally too.

Why does Denning not take the Yoshimura engines to build a CR-Team? He had all the structure and Rizla wanted to continue? Would have been nice to see them be one of the best CRT's without the backing of the Suzuki factory. Also he would have gotten all the advantages of a CRT like money, more fuel, more engines etc.

Yoshimura are a good outfit so imo that's a good thing to see. Crescent Suzuki should start with a bang at least. WSBK looking good for next season as well as MotoGP so for bike racing fans, 2012 will hopefully be a good year.

I wouldn't be surprised if Crescent-Yoshimura show up with an CRT bike in MotoGP 2013! Just not enough time to build the bikes etc for next season.

If the Cresent-Yoshimura team is half as good as the Yoshimura Suzuki team that dominated AMA superbike for a decade (with a little assistance from Mladin and Spies), everyone in the WSBK paddock should be a little worried. I'm betting that Cresent is VERY close to announcing John Hopkins as their second rider. GO HOPPER21!
