judging by his new helmet design colours for next year, white with red and green bits...i'd guess haga is in an italian team ('cos he definately ain't italian!!)

There are not many options left for Haga now. Best option I think is he comes back with either PATA or if the team dispands he signs with DFX if they stick around. Otherwise it is only the 4th Effenbert Ducati, and I don't know if they would have the money to pay Haga's wages as well as 3 other riders.

He is such a popular rider I don't think the organisers would want to see him not on the grid.

I was watching Haga from '98 in his first race as WChampionship rider . It's not that young now, not that crazy not that spectacular and fast any more but i tell you one thing . Whitout Haga SBK Championship has no use!!

OK so i have heard a rumour, take what you will from it .
Nori will be Checa's team mate. As i say it is a rumour but from a friend of mine who is also a massive Nori fan and knows a few people.
Won't beleive it until i see it but he offered up the info, i did not ask for it.

wow. Yamaha goes from champions to not even competing in 2 years. That blows me away. If Haga gets left out in the cold, we'd LOVE to have him here in the AMA! I garauntee his presence would draw bigger crowds. Everyone loves nitro nori!

Highly doubtful, Davide Giugliano is the other Althea rider next year. Can't see them adding a 3rd bike either...

@spiesunderdog - If Haga came to the AMA it would also give the AMA some credibility. Right now, we don't have the respect of the international community any more. I can't blame them. Except for Spies, no one has really gone over to WSBK and set the world on fire. We don't have the showings that the Brits and Spanish are having right now.
