Another end of an era? Disappointed. He definitely still has wins in him, tho competition looks tough at the tops ths year.
But all u gotta do is look at Checa and Biaggi. It can be done

Suppose teams that would take him on have signed on riders.
Will never forget him owning at wth that R7 at Kyalami.
Let's hope for the best

Shame about Nori, but lets be honest do we want to see our superstar waddling around mid pack on a some clunker nailed together by a second rate potato crisp company? it would be as embarrasing as seeing a Heavyweight Boxing champion playing "puss in boots" in pantomome. He will never get a top ride again so let him go gracefully

@ Pseudoephedrine

The Ducati, especially in 2010 was NOT what it should've been.
And in 2009, if not for injury he would've had Spies' number. (Yes, I know, Ifs and buts mean nothing).

But he was by no means lackluster on that bike. I think missing out AGAIN in 2009 broke him and combined with the factory Ducati not being it's best in 2010, didn't help.

He really was picking up form again after half way last year.
It's a pity, the man is a legend, and those who don't appreciate him, have clearly not watched much SBK racing in their lives.

Nori was the most exciting rider on the Planet at one time, don't you Tos---- forget it. So sorry he didn't win a title, but he gave everything he could to WSK, I will miss his riding, but will never forget him.

Let's face it we had seen the best of Nori.

He was very un-consistant last year, it's time to let him go.

But thanks Haga for some great moments, a name we wont forget in a hurry.
