Good for Salom. If he shows well on the Pedercini bike this year, he'll be able to get a good ride next year anyway. And I hope the rumor of Haga going to Kawi is not true. I like Haga, but he's not even competitive in BSB!

I don't know why he was the first option, he wasn't too much outstanding this year. I respect him, but I think there are much better choices, not inside the WSB championship but outside of it.

Anyone knows why he always wears last year's Motocard leathers?

No, I dont see how Haga or Scassa could break out of their current agreements to ride with the team. I also might be able to see West perhaps breaking way to return to Kawasaki, but if hes secure in his ride in Moto2, he would probably know better to stick it out there and make that team's efforts look better than what it seems at the moment.

Maybe Chris Vermeulen?

This came out on Thursday, West was their first choice and he turned it down and if you read his twitter he doesn't get paid for riding in Moto2 with QMMF.
The report also said that Kawasaki wages are not that good.
Also agree with putting Haga on this and get him out of BSB wasting everybody's time.

a tough one ok,its a big seat ,or ride,with most fast guys contracted,west and chris verm,are just not fast enough or good enough at this level,if they are looking for a rider able to win at wsbk level,it looks like someone has to break a contract,it would have to be considered as a tempting, mouth watering ride to most riders at this top level,whos not happy with their team then?
